Knowledge transfer is our mission
Introduction to Geothermal Energy
Instructor: Dr. Joseph Batir
Dates: 18 – 19 July 2023, 8 am – 12 pm CDT
Price: $480 (GET members and students will receive a 50% refund after approval)*


Course Description: This course introduces geothermal energy introducing the audience to what geothermal is, how geothermal resources are discovered, and how to produce energy once found. The geothermal exploration, production, and development process is similar to the petroleum industry but varies because of the desired end product, hot producible water versus a hydrocarbon resource. This course introduces broad ideas and geologic characteristics of geothermal system development including exploration and production concepts. We will highlight past projects and evaluations using real case studies.


Instructor: Dr. Joseph Batir is Geothermal Lead at Teverra with close to 15 years of experience, currently guiding his team in thermal resource characterization, oilfield energy conversion, geothermal reservoir modeling, and new technologies and tool development. Dr. Batir’s expertise is exploration and resource quantification through the surface and subsurface geospatial analysis, play fairway mapping, and numerical modeling, which has led to discoveries of unknown and underutilized energy resources. To further this work, Teverra is currently developing innovative analysis methods to discover new geologic insights and identify additional energy opportunities. His work includes projects throughout the Continental United States, Alaska, Africa, South America, the Middle East, and Iceland in both sedimentary and volcanic settings.

More than 300 courses worldwide. Attendees from more than 60 countries and 35 companies.
Teverra At-Home Seminar Series – P.A.S.S.

Teverra conducted a series of free online seminars by industry leaders for the COVID-19 home quarantine time to keep our knowledge transfer mission going on. The objective was to keep our technical community learning and motivated while passing through this difficult time. The seminars cover topics related to oil and gas, geothermal energy and CCS.
