An experimental study of the phase change by in-situ vaporization in porous medium

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A natural geothermal reservoir is an aquifer generally in liquid phase confined between two impermeable layers of rock. Drilling of such reservoirs causes a decompression which allows the in-situ vaporization of some water and the development of a dual-phase flow. Dual-phase flow is directed by the fractures of the reservoir; energy extinction is mainly determined by heat and mass transfers between the rock and the fluids. A large part of the energy stored in the reservoir is the heat of the rock, so the knowledge of these two interconnected mechanisms is very important to appreciate the behavior of geothermal reservoirs.
