Conference Proceedings: Update on the Raft River Geothermal Reservoir

Abstract
Since the last conference, a fourth well has been drilled to an intermediate depth and tested as a production well, with plans to use this well in the long term for injection of fluids into the strata above the production strata. The third, triple legged well has been fully pump tested, and the recovery of the second well from an injection well back to production status has revealed very interesting data on the reservoir conditions around that well. Both interference testing and geochemistry analysis shows that the third well is producing from a different aquifer than that supplying the No. 2 well. There is an effective barrier, yet unidentified as to structure, making pressure communication between these aquifers quite negligible. These results have led to significantly different models for the aquifer system than those previously believed to apply.
