Exploration Activity: Conceptual Model At Coso Geothermal Area (2006)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Coso Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Conceptual Model
Activity Date 2006
Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

Exploration Basis
Determine boiling zones and their relation to production zones by developing a fluid model
A fluid model for the Coso geothermal reservoir is developed from Fluid Inclusion Stratigraphy (FIS) analyses. Fluid inclusion gas chemistry in well cuttings collected at 20 ft intervals is analyzed and plotted on well log diagrams. Models are created using cross-sections and fence diagrams.
