Conference Paper: Advances In The Past 20 Years- Geochemistry In Geothermal Exploration Resource Evaluation And Reservoir Management

Abstract
Most theoretical fundamentals of geothermal geochemistry were established by the mid-1980s, as were numerous practical applications of these fundamentals to geothermal resource evaluation and management. Since that time, these geeochmical tools have been refined to various degrees. Noted developments include: widespread use of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC); advances in spectral analysis; new and refined chemical geothermometers (especially using non-condensible gas species); analysis tools that enable fluid inclusion stratigraphy; ground surface CO2 flux measurement; integration of geochemical reaction models into numerical reservoir simulation; scaling and wellflow chemistry modification; new reservoir tracers and flow-line tracer enthalpy technology. Emphasis is placed on commercially applied technology, but academic developments are included.
