The I-GET (Integrated Geophysical Exploration Technologies) project for deep fractured geothermal systems was co-funded in November 2005 by the European Commission within the 6th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development . Within the project, 11 partners from 6 European countries joined forces with the objective to further develop methodologies to improve the detection, prior to drilling, of fluid bearing zones in naturally and/or artificially fractured geothermal reservoirs. The basic idea was to integrate data and measurements from several existing geophysical methods into a unified reservoir model. This approach was tested at four European geothermal systems ( Fig. 1 ) with different geological and thermodynamic reservoir characteristics. These included two high-enthalpy systems, one in metamorphic rocks at Travale, Italy and the other in volcanic rocks at Hengill, Iceland, and two lower enthalpy geothermal systems in deep sedimentary rocks, one at Groß Schönebeck, Germany and the other at Skierniewice, Poland. 1 1 http://edoc.gfz-potsdam.de/gfz/get/12859/0/57d6c5511a95c47b79d87bdb3f2b3b10/I-GET_Final_2009.pdf . The high-enthalpy site at Travale in Italy is part of the reservoir system at Larderello, where electricity was first produced from geothermal fluids in 1904. The productive zones of the deep reservoir occur mainly within contact metamorphic carbonate rocks above a granitic intrusion. Less productive
