Short summary
This study evaluates the structural geological requirements for the city of Minden, Germany, in order to provide thermal energy for domestic, commercial or even industrial usage. The structural geological modeling and the interpretation of a regional seismic line show possible geothermal reservoirs within different Mesozoic stratigraphic units (e.g. Keuper and Middle Bunter sandstones) at varying depths up to 4,100 m including temperatures obtained through analytical calculations above 150°C.
