Exploration Activity: Conceptual Model At Raft River Geothermal Area (1977)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Raft River Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Conceptual Model
Activity Date 1977

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Determine time to cool the geothermal field with reinjection
 
Notes
If reinjection and production wells intersect connected fractures, it is expected that reinjected fluid would cool the production well much sooner than would be predicted from calculations of flow in a porous medium. A method for calculating how much sooner that cooling will occur was developed.
