Exploration Activity: Cuttings Analysis At Coso Geothermal Area (2005)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Coso Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Cuttings Analysis
Activity Date 2005

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
EGS well analysis for fractures to determine the geologic framework of the east flank of the field
 
Notes
This paper summarizes petrologic and geologic investigations on two East Flank wells, 34A-9 and 34-9RD2 conducted as part of a continuing effort to better understand how the rocks will behave during hydraulic and thermal stimulation. Well 34A-9 is the hottest well at depth in the East Flank, reaching nearly 350 0C. The reservoir on the East Flank is dominated by diorite and granodiorite.
