Simulate reservoir performance
Computer models describing both the transient reservoir pressure behavior and the time dependent temperature response of the wells were developed. A horizontal, two-dimensional, finite-difference model for calculating pressure effects was constructed to simulate reservoir performance. Vertical, two-dimensional, finite-difference, axisymmetric models for each of the three existing wells were also constructed to describe the transient temperature and hydraulic behavior in the vicinity of the wells.
