Journal Article: Geothermal Resources Of The Beijing Area, China

Hot water resources were discovered in 1970 at a fairly shallow depth below the city of Beijing. The total areal extent of the geothermal field is presently estimated at more than 100 km2. The two known thermal aquifers are composed of fractured dolomites and the temperature of the aquifers ranges from 53 to 80°C. Based on the production-drawdown history of the Beijing geothermal field, for the period 1971-1981, the unit step response of the reservoir is obtained. Parameters of a simple lumped two-capacitor model, matched with the unit step response, furnish some information on dimensions and overall potential of the Beijing reservoir.
