AGR to support geothermal drilling campaign in Denmark

We have been awarded a contract by geothermal energy supplier Innargi to provide technical consultancy for three geothermal appraisal wells that are being drilled in Aarhus, Denmark.

Innargi is owned by A.P. Moller Holding, ATP, NRGi, and Sampension. The company aims to bring clean, reliable district heating to Europe through the renewable resource in subsurface– geothermal energy.

Our wellsite geology and wellsite drilling supervision experts are providing their skills for the wells in the Aarhus Project.

We are proud of our in-depth experience from well and reservoir engineering studies for geothermal wells. Moreover, we have supplied software solutions for managing geothermal drilling time and costs, supporting projects in Germany and Austria.

“Our team has a track record of managing drilling of more than 200 wells in the North Sea. The Aarhus project is a great example of valuable competence transfer from the oil and gas industry to renewable energy sources,” says Lene Thorstensen, Manager Operations and Wellsite Geology at AGR.

If everything goes to plan, the Aarhus geothermal plant will become the EU’s largest geothermal district heating system. A 6,000-horsepower drilling rig has been set up to penetrate 2.5 km into the ground to extract hot water. According to the plans, heat delivery begins in 2025. Upon completion of all sub-plants, the system is projected to provide 20% of Aarhus’s district heating.

AGR is part of Oslo-listed energy and marine consultancy group ABL Group ASA.
