Book: Borehole geophysics evaluation of the Raft River geothermal reservoir

Abstract
Borehole geophysics techniques were used in evaluating the Raft River geothermal reservoir to establish a viable model for the system. The assumed model for the hot water (145/sup 0/C) reservoir was a zone of higher conductivity, increased porosity, decreased density, and lower sonic velocity. It was believed that the long term contact with the hot water would cause alteration producing these effects. With this model in mind, cross-plots of the above parameters were made to attempt to delineate the reservoir. It appears that the most meaningful data include smoothed and expanded plots of transit time, porosity, and density as a function of depth; and triangular plots of transit time, porosity, and density. This data yields discrete zones which appear to be the productive zones.
