Geothermal Reservoir Engineering in Industry

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

For reservoir engineers in private industry, a geothermal project begins when a potential geothermal prospect is being evaluated for leasing. The reservoir engineer must be involved with the exploitation and land acquisition groups, and with the exploration and initial drilling program. The reservoir engineer must contribute information to the environmental impact analysis, and is challenged to determine how large his reserves are within the shortest possible time and with the minimum amount of wells and testing. Needs are described for temperature tools as sensitive as those for bottomhole pressure measurement, for analysis of chemical data for its implications about reservoir ... continued below

Description

For reservoir engineers in private industry, a geothermal project begins when a potential geothermal prospect is being evaluated for leasing. The reservoir engineer must be involved with the exploitation and land acquisition groups, and with the exploration and initial drilling program. The reservoir engineer must contribute information to the environmental impact analysis, and is challenged to determine how large his reserves are within the shortest possible time and with the minimum amount of wells and testing. Needs are described for temperature tools as sensitive as those for bottomhole pressure measurement, for analysis of chemical data for its implications about reservoir performance, for more complete understanding of the effects of water injection into reservoirs, and for techniques that minimize water injection’s detrimental effects. The engineering going on in the field is highly complementary to the current research activity.
