Preliminary Evaluation Of Soufriere Geothermal Field, St Lucia (Lesser Antilles)
Journal Article: Preliminary Evaluation Of Soufriere Geothermal Field, St Lucia (Lesser Antilles)
AbstractGeological, geochemical and geophysical studies have been carried out in the Soufriere caldera, St. Lucia, Lesser Antilles. The results are in accordance with the data obtained from previously drilled wells. In particular, these studies have also been used to: (i) determine the extent of the heat anomaly; (ii) indicate the levels containing hot geothermal fluids for high enthalpy exploitation; (iii) estimate the nature and extent of the reservoir; (iv) construct a preliminary model of the geothermal system, with a fluid at 220°C and a deeper one at about 350°C, both originating from a concentrated brine. Heat flux is estimated to be 6-7 times the average terrestrial value (250 - 290 mW/m2); (v) determine the most favourable areas for deep drilling.
