Journal Article: Evaluation Of Reservoir Temperatures And Local Utilization Of Geothermal Waters Of The Konkan Coast, India

Abstract
Geochemical studies on fifteen geothermal manifestations (38-70°C) from the Konkan coast geothermal province of India have been used to evaluate the reservoir temperatures. Activity studies of the minerals and the waters present in the reservoirs suggest that the thermal waters are in equilibrium with montmorillonite, kaolinite and quartz at about 100°C. Reservoir temperatures of these geothermal systems as estimated by geochemical thermometers, are 88 to 128°C, and thus too low for economic electricity production.
