Vapor pressure lowering in brines and implications for formation of a high temperature reservoir

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper summarizes some preliminary numerical simulations of the formation of a HTR. The numerical model TETRAD (Vinsome, 1991 ; Vinsome and Shook, 1993) was used in the study. A two-dimensional model was used, and a possible evolutionary scenario for The Geysers was simulated. Results of the study indicate that a HTR may form under a variety of conditions, and may either be two-phase or superheated. Using brine as the reservoir fluid tends to create a two-phase HTR, with a substantial concentration of salt in that zone. The HTR developed in this study appears to be transient in nature, but ... continued below

The HTR developed in this study appears to be transient in nature, but is cooling only very slowly.
