Abstract

Soultz-sous-For& is the French site of the European Hot Dry Rock (HDR) project of which the objective is the creation of a heat exchanger at depth in the granite that constitutes the basement of the Rhine Graben. Geochemical studies permitted the charac-terization of the fluid circulation, which occur naturally in the Rhine Graben and are man-induced at the Soultz site. After the development of the heat exchanger, long-term circulation and tracer tests during the summer of 1997 have allowed for an improved characterization of the reservoir.
