dc.description.abstractprovince of Alberta is home to one of the World’s largest strategic sedimentary basins. The Oil and Gas industry has been Alberta’s major source of economic prosperity for more than half a century. There are plenty of related environmental concerns with the oil and gas operations. The Earth’s thermal energy potential known as Geothermal is one the most reliable sustainable energy sources with the least negative environmental impacts. In this capstone project, a feasibility analysis with numerical model was performed for heat storage and recovery, to create synthetic geothermal reservoirs in Alberta’s cold shallow formations. Additionally, an analytical model was created to recover sustainable heat for space heating applications from hot deep deposited formations using the decommissioned wells. The objective of this study is to provide a sustainable solution to meet some of the Alberta’s growing energy mix demand for the future while lowering the GHG emissions and negative environmental impacts of the abandoned oil and gas wells.
