Geothermometry At Blue Mountain Geothermal Area (Casteel, Et Al., 2010)
Exploration Activity: Geothermometry At Blue Mountain Geothermal Area (Casteel, Et Al., 2010)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Blue Mountain Geothermal Area|
|Activity Date||2010 - 2010|
A water and gas geothermometer study was done to help define the reservoir temperature.
24 different water and gas geothermometers were analyzed. Most of the geothermometers analyzed in this study show that temperatures in the reservoir may exceed 200 C. A Fisher-Tropsch diagram predicts temperatures of 230-240 C for the reservoir fluid. A quartz geothermometer (T-Qtz) predicts temperatures of 213 C.
