Injectivity Test At Vale Hot Springs Area (Combs, Et Al., 1999)
Exploration Activity: Injectivity Test At Vale Hot Springs Area (Combs, Et Al., 1999)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Vale Hot Springs Area|
|Exploration Technique||Injectivity Test|
Analysis of the two injection tests performed at the exploration slimhole site during May, 1995 yielded estimates for the permeability-thickness product (transmissivity) kh of 0.25 and 0.23 Da-fi, based on pressure fall off after injection (see Section IV-a). Using the pressure buildup for the second test, a transmissivity of 0.610 Da-ft was estimated. These estimates are approximately an order of magnitude smaller than the kh values estimated for the nearby A-Alt well which was tested in 1994.
