Well Interference Study of the Multi-Layered Salton Sea Geothermal Reservoir

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A well interference testing program of the Salton Sea Geothermal reservoir is being conducted as part of a resource evaluation study by the Earth Sciences Geothermal Industrial Support Program of the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. Studies to date indicate the reservoir rock to be composed of layered sequences of shales and sands. Wells involved in the testing program are being used in support of, or are in the vicinity of, the MAGMA-SDG&E Geothermal Loop Experimental Facility (GLEF), located in the Salton Sea Geothermal Field (SSGF). Between these wells, a shale layer has been correlated which appears to divide the reservoir into ... continued below

Description

A well interference testing program of the Salton Sea Geothermal reservoir is being conducted as part of a resource evaluation study by the Earth Sciences Geothermal Industrial Support Program of the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. Studies to date indicate the reservoir rock to be composed of layered sequences of shales and sands. Wells involved in the testing program are being used in support of, or are in the vicinity of, the MAGMA-SDG&E Geothermal Loop Experimental Facility (GLEF), located in the Salton Sea Geothermal Field (SSGF). Between these wells, a shale layer has been correlated which appears to divide the reservoir into an upper and lower portion. Other thick sand and shale sequences may provide additional stratification. This report describes work in progress on a well testing program designed to determine the horizontal and vertical transmissivity and storage parameters between wells in the vicinity of the GLEF. These tests are being conducted with the cooperation and support of Magma Power Company and San Diego Gas and Electric Company. 3 figs., 4 refs.
