Structural and Geophysical Characterisation of the Crystalline Basement in the Northern Upper Rhine Graben

Matthis Frey , Claire Bossennec , Lukas Seib , Kristian Bär & Ingo Sass
In the northern Upper Rhine Graben (URG), the crystalline basement constitutes an attractive target for deep geothermal exploitation due to the favourable reservoir temperatures and abundance of natural fractures and large-scale faults. Consequently, especially the upper, hydrothermally altered part is already successfully used for heat and power generation at several locations (Insheim, Landau, Rittershoffen and Soultz-sous-Forêts). Nevertheless, because of the small number of very deep boreholes drilled into the crystalline basement, little is known about...
