Report: Massive Hydraulic Fracture of Fenton Hill HDR Well EE-3

Abstract
Subsequent to a 5.6 million gallon massive hydraulic fracturing (MHF) experiment in Fenton Hill Hot Dry Rock (HDR) Well EE-2, a 2 million gallon MHF was planned for Well EE-3. Although hydraulic communication between wells EE-2 and EE-3 was not established during the initial MHF, a large reservoir was created around EE-2 which seemed to be in proximity with EE-3. The objective of this 2nd MHF was two-fold, to test the reservoir and seismic characteristics of the EE-3 openhole region from 11,390 to 11,770 ft and to drive fractures into the fractured region created earlier by the EE-2 MHF experiment. This paper discusses well repairs to prepare EE-3 for the MHF, the pumping operations, and injection parameters and briefly summarizes seismic results. 2 refs., 6 figs.
