Exploration Basis
Determine crustul stress heterogeneity
Borehole induced structures in image logs of wells from the Coso Geothermal Field (CGF) record variation in the azimuth of principal stress. Image logs of these structures from five wells were analyzed to quantify the stress heterogeneity for three geologically distinct locations: two wells within the CGF (one in an actively produced volume), two on the margin of the CGF and outside the production area, and a control well several tens of km south of the CGF.
