In situ stress variations near faults considering fault zone rock rheology - implications for reservoir stimulation and associated seismicity (SNF_Ma)
The project seeks a better understanding of the in situ stress spatial variations near fault zone from the far-field, to the damage zone and to the fault core. ...

Creating a hierarchy of fracture network in enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) through innovative hydraulic fracturing stimulation (ETH Grant_Ma)
The proposed project seeks to demonstrate that the creation of a hierarchy of fracture network is necessary for an effective stimulation of the deep geothermal reservoirs (i.e., hot dry rocks). ...
