Journal Article: Lateral Steam Flow Revealed By A Pressure Build-Up Test At The Matsukawa Vapor-Dominated Geothermal Field, Japan

Abstract
Results and a discussion of a pressure build-up test at the Matsukawa vapor-dominated geothermal field in north-east Japan are reported. Pressure build-up behavior of three dry steam wells was monitored at the wellhead in October 1986. The observed pressure gradient clearly shows the existence of a lateral steam flow from south-west to north-east in the reservoir. This result suggests that the vapor-dominated reservoir extends further south-west than it is currently being developed. These conclusions are supported by production records and chemical data.
