Exploration Activity: Chemical Logging At North Brawley Geothermal Area (Department, 1979)

Exploration Activity Details
Location North Brawley Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Chemical Logging
Activity Date 1979 - 1979

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Chemical logs were made from well fluids for analysis when designing the first experimental power plant
 
Notes
Detailed logs of well fluids were recorded. Non-condensable gases and dissolved solids were analyzed in geothermal fluids from two wells. Total non-condensable gas measured in weight percent of steam is between 7.1 and 9.4%. Silica concentrations are 527 mg/l and total dissolved solids measure 82,900 mg/l.
