A Geophysical Approach to Reservoir Delineation in the Geysers

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Recent syntheses of geophysical work at The Geysers (Chapman 1975, Isherwood 1975) have provided useful insights into regional structure in this complex and chaotic area. Regional studies of this type, however, are of limited value to reservoir investigations and it may be that the more detailed temperature gradient/heat flow studies (Frye 1976) can supply more useful information. This paper describes results of a study carried out on the Rorabaugh lease in the southwest sector of The Geysers geothermal field. The success of this survey in a comparatively simple situation suggests that it may be developed to handle more complex areas ... continued below

Description

Recent syntheses of geophysical work at The Geysers (Chapman 1975, Isherwood 1975) have provided useful insights into regional structure in this complex and chaotic area. Regional studies of this type, however, are of limited value to reservoir investigations and it may be that the more detailed temperature gradient/heat flow studies (Frye 1976) can supply more useful information. This paper describes results of a study carried out on the Rorabaugh lease in the southwest sector of The Geysers geothermal field. The success of this survey in a comparatively simple situation suggests that it may be developed to handle more complex areas with shallow hot water zones, variable lithology and variable microclimates. If this can be done, it may provide a useful link between geothermal exploration and reservoir engineering. 5 refs., 1 fig.
