Use of Oil Boreholes in the Carpathians in Geoenergetic Systems: Historical and Conceptual Review

Tomasz Sliwa, Marc A. Rosen and Zbigniew Jezuit

Abstract:
Past, present and possible future uses of oil boreholes in the Carpathians in Poland are examined from the perspective of geoenergetic systems. To start, a brief historical review is presented of oil wells in the Carpathians, which was one of the first areas in the world where oil extraction began. Numerous boreholes were drilled and many are now located in urban areas. Oil and gas resources are no longer extracted and the wells need to be closed according to Polish law. This need has led to considerations of converting the wells into borehole heat exchangers. This idea would allow the old Carpathian wells to be used for heating or cooling with the assistance of heat pumps, contributing a new option for solving present energy and environmental problems.
