Exploration Activity: Well Log Data At Dixie Valley Geothermal Area (Barton, Et Al., 1998)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Dixie Valley Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Well Log Data
Activity Date 1995 - 1998

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Well log data was used to investigate the relationship between permeability and the contemporary in situ stress field in the Dixie Valley Geothermal Reservoir.
 
Notes
Well logs recorded from six wells in the Dixie Valley Geothermal Reservoir were analyzed. Borehole televiewer, temperature and flowmeter data was recorded in the wells. Fracture and fluid flow data from wells within and outside of the active producing reservoir were collected. Data from the wells indicate that permeability is dominated by a relatively small number of fractures that strike parallel to the main range front fault .
