Conference Paper: Evaluation Of Chemical Geothermometers For Calculating Reservoir Temperatures At Nevada Geothermal Power Plants

Abstract
Various geothermometers were calculated using data collected from existing power plants to evaluate the utility of using these geothermometers to evaluate subsurface temperatures of Nevada geothermal resources. Both traditional (e.g., quartz, Na-K-Ca, etc.) geothermometers and other methods (e.g., Reed and Spycher, 1984) are evaluated. The traditional quartz geothermometers do well at estimating reservoir temperatures at the higher temperature systems, whereas the Reed and Spycher (1984) method may have more utility in the lower temperature systems.
