Pressure Depletion Calculations for Liquid Geothermal Reservoirs

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

One of the key problems in geothermal field management is to determine how many wells will be needed, and when in the project lifetime the new wells will come on-line. To make this determination requires an estimate of the field depletion. Methods used for approximating the field behavior are discussed, and examples are provided using data from some liquid-dominated reservoirs in the U.S. and abroad. The calculated decline curves are compared to a few cases for which field production data is available. 2 tabs., 6 figs., 5 refs.
