Exploration Activity: Flow Test At Raft River Geothermal Area (1979)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Raft River Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Flow Test
Activity Date 1979

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
To allow for the lateral and vertical extrapolation of core and test data and bridged the gap between surface geophysical data and core analyses.
 
Notes
Temperature and flowmeter logs provide evidence that these fractures and faults are conduits that conduct hot water to the wells. One of the intermediate depth core holes penetrated a hydrothermally altered zone that includes several fractures producing hot water. This altered production zone could be distinguished by several logs.
