Stanford Geothermal Program [quarterly technical report, January--March 1991] ( )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Progress was reported on adsorption work in experimental, theoretical and field projects. The reinjection task is now nearing completion of the work on optimizing injection into the Palinpinon geothermal field in the Philippines. Well test analysis research has been expanded with the initiation of a new project on multiwell interference test interpretation
Comparison of pressure transient response in intensely and sparsely fractured reservoirs ( )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A comprehensive analytical model is presented to study the pressure transient behavior of a naturally fractured reservoir with a continuous matrix block size distribution. Geologically realistic probability density functions of matrix block size are used to represent reservoirs of varying fracture intensity and uniformity. Transient interporosity flow is assumed and interporosity skin is incorporated. Drawdown and interference pressure transient tests are investigated. The results show distinctions in the pressure response from intensely and sparsely fractured reservoirs in the absence of interporosity skin. Also, uniformly and nonuniformly fractured reservoirs exhibit distinct responses, irrespective of the degree of fracture intensity. The pressure response in a nonuniformly fractured reservoir with large block size variability, approaches a nonfractured (homogeneous) reservoir response. Type curves are developed to estimate matrix block size variability and the degree of fracture intensity from drawdown and interference well tests

Analysis of tracer and thermal transients during reinjection ( )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work studied tracer and thermal transients during reinjection in geothermal reserviors and developed a new technique which combines the results from interwell tracer tests and thermal injection-backflow tests to estimate the thermal breakthrough times. Tracer tests are essential to determine the degree of connectivity between the injection wells and the producing wells. To analyze the tracer return profiles quantitatively, we employed three mathematical models namely, the convection-dispersion (CD) model, matrix diffusion (MD) model, and the Avodnin (AD) model, which were developed to study tracer and heat transport in a single vertical fracture. We considered three types of tracer tests namely, interwell tracer tests without recirculation, interwell tracer tests with recirculation, and injection-backflow tracer tests. To estimate the model parameters, we used a nonlinear regression program to match tracer return profiles to the solutions

Pressure oscillations caused by momentum on shut in of a high rate well in a fractured formation ( )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pressure transient testing techniques are an important part of reservoir and production testing procedures. These techniques are frequently used to determine practical information about underground reservoirs such as the permeability, porosity, liquid content, reservoir and liquid discontinuities and other related data. This information is valuable in helping to analyze, improve and forecast reservoir performance. This report is concerned with developing models for pressure transient well testing in high permeability, high flow rate, naturally fractured reservoirs. In the present work, a study was made of the effects of liquid inertia in the fractures and the wellbore on the pressure response obtained during a well test. The effects of turbulent flow and multi-phase flow effects such as gravitational segregation or anisotropic porous media effects were not considered. The scope of the study was limited to studying inertial effects on the pressure response of a fractured reservoir

Overview Hard Rock Penetration ( )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the guidelines established for the safe and efficient management of the Palinpinon Geothermal Field is to adopt a production and well utilization strategy such that the rapid rate and magnitude of reinjection fluid returns leading to premature thermal breakthrough would be minimized. To help achieve this goal, sodium fluorescein and radioactive tracer tests have been conducted to determine the rate and extent of communication between the reinjection and producing sectors of the field. The first objective of this paper is to show how the results of these tests, together with information on field geometry and operating conditions were used in algorithms developed in Operations Research to allocate production and reinjection rates among the different Palinpinon wells. Due to operational and economic constraints, such tracer tests were very limited in number and scope. This prevents obtaining information on the explicit interaction between each reinjection well and the producing wells. Hence, the chloride value of the producing well, was tested to determine if use of this parameter would enable identifying fast reinjection paths among different production/reinjection well pairs. The second aim, therefore, of this paper is to show the different methods of using the chloride data of the producing wells and the injection flow rates of the reinjection wells to provide a ranking of the pair of wells and, thereby, optimize the reinjection strategy of the field

An experimental study of adsorption in vapor-dominated geothermal systems ( )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We report results of steam adsorption experiments conducted for rock samples from vapor-dominated geothermal reservoirs. We examine the effect of the temperature on the adsorption/desorption isotherms. We find that the temperature effect is only important on the desorption such that the hysteresis becomes more pronounced as the temperature increases. The scanning behavior within the steam sorption hysteresis loop is also studied to investigate the behavior during repressurization. Collection of sets of data on the sorption behavior of The Geysers geothermal field in California is presented
