EGS well analysis for fractures to determine the geologic framework of the east flank of the field
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.
