Parametric study of gravity change accompanying geothermal reservoir change calculated by numerical simulation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We conducted feasibility studies of gravity monitoring based upon reservoir simulation. At first, actual field data (although slightly modified) were used for constructing the conceptual model of a geothermal reservoir, particularly for shallow geothermal reservoir case study. Then the possibility of gravity monitoring was confirmed. Secondly, in order to study the possibility of this for deep geothermal reservoir, we constructed simplified models for deep reservoir. Three models were prepared for our feasibility studies. These simulations showed us that we could also get fairly positive results, if we apply a very sensitive and stable gravity monitoring system. As a next step, ... continued below
