Eden’s patented, innovative stimulation technique can offset carbon emissions, run on 100% renewable energy, and save billions of gallons of water annually. Reservoir permeability is one of the major challenges to sustainable resource recovery. Our Electrical Reservoir Stimulation technology enables effective permeability enhancement and management to increase the recovery of geothermal heat, critical minerals, and unconventional resources.
The problem with hydraulic fracturing
Geological Reservoir Stimulation Technology Needs an Upgrade
There is a huge untapped potential for permeability enhancement of subsurface mineral ore and geothermal reservoirs to increase resource recovery and economics. Traditional hydraulic fracturing technology isn’t clean enough or effective enough to get us there:
Expensive & Difficult
Wells stimulation can cost up to $4M or more and requires coordination between many different contractors
High-pressure pumping is powered by diesel generators, which emit large amounts of CO2
Well stimulation requires an average of 5M gallons of water, and the extremely high breakdown pressure can trigger small earthquakes
Extreme pressure and temperature conditions downhole make it difficult to control fracture permeability pathways, which leads to low recovery rates
Eden is on a mission to develop more sustainable geologic reservoir stimulation technology.
This radically different approach to stimulation utilizes high-voltage electricity as the main mechanism to increase reservoir permeability. Electrical reservoir stimulation works seamlessly with recent innovations in geothermal reservoir drilling to provide successful stimulation of wells, achieving maximum net power output.

Improving Reservoir Stimulation
New stimulation technologies are needed to increase geothermal heat extraction and natural resource recovery with minimal environmental impact.
Electrical Reservoir Stimulation enhances directional permeability in subsurface fractures, which can increase recovery rates with low fluid injection pressures to mitigate seismic events.
Targeted Stimulation with Zonal Isolation
Underperforming zones need to be stimulated to create even flow distribution across the wellbore to avoid fluid short circuiting and ensure maximum resource recovery. Electrical Reservoir Stimulation can be used to target specific zones with a higher success rate than current methods.
Higher recovery by accessing more reservoir volume
Increased reservoir porosity and permeability
Safer operations by eliminating contamination and waste
Permanent impact and lasting results
Unmatched Among Standard Solutions
Electrical Reservoir Stimulation combines the highest efficiency with a superior, environmentally conscious approach.
