Conference Paper: Low-To-Medium-Temperature Mexican Geothermal Reserves- Partial Assesment

Abstract
In this work we make a first, partial, assessment of the low- to medium-temperature geothermal reserves of Mexico. The assessment covers about 30% of the identified geothermal surface manifestations. For reserve assessment we use the volume method, supplemented with Monte Carlo simulations and statistics, in order to quantify the inherent uncertainties. We estimate these reserves as lying between 7.7 10l6 and 8.6 10I6 kJ, with 90% confidence. The distribution of most likely reservoir temperatures ranges 6O-18O0C,w ith a mean equal to 111°C. These massive amounts of recoverable energy and the associated temperatures are potentially important for the economic development of the associated geothermal localities.
