Conference Paper: A Simple, Fast Method of Estimating Fractured Reservoir Geometry from Tracer Tests

Abstract
A simple method of estimating flow geometry and pore geometry from conservative tracer tests in single phase geothermal reservoirs is shown. The tracer effluent history at any given production well is used in an Excel spreadsheet application to estimate relative flow vs. storage capacity. In a set of simple numerical experiments the flow ad storage geometries estimated using this analysis agrees very well with known geometries. Open flow boundaries do not change the accuracy of the method.
