Geothermal resource assessment involves studies and research aimed at assessing the nature and energy production capacity of geothermal systems. It is based on the data available at any given time-, or stage in the development of a system, such as surface exploration data, the results of the drilling of exploration and production wells, as well as production monitoring data.
