The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Southern Methodist University Geothermal Laboratory, Eastman Chemical, Turbine Air Systems, and the Electric Power Research Institute are evaluating the feasibility of using geothermal heat to improve the efficiency of natural gas power plants. The area of interest is the Eastman Chemical plant in Longview, Texas, which is on the northwestern margin of the Sabine Uplift. The study is focused on determining the potential for a geothermal reservoir within a 10 km radius of the site as defined by data from existing geological studies and cross-sections within the depths of 2,100 to 3,400 meters. Wells within a 20 km radius are included for broader geological comparison to determine the heat flow, temperature-at-depth, and oil and gas field porosity and permeability. The geothermal reservoir model is based on the multiple formation top data sources, published literature data, and well log interpretations within the 10 km radius. Area thickness estimates, reservoir extent bounding parameters, potential flow rates, and temperatures are combined to calculate a reservoir productivity index and develop a reservoir production model. Historical fluid volumes production data are used as an independent check for the reservoir productivity index and production model results. The reservoir parameters calculated here are being used for the surface engineering model to determine the economic viability of using geothermal fluids for a deep direct use application at this site. The data files are submitted as separate workbooks in 'content model' format, including: Well Fluid Production, Heat Flow, and Geologic Reservoir. Python code and steps to calculate heat flow and temperature-at-depth maps.

Well 58-32 (previously labeled MU-ESW1) was drilled near Milford Utah during Phase 2B of the FORGE Project to confirm geothermal reservoir characteristics met requirements for the final FORGE site.

Well Accord-1 was drilled decades ago for geothermal exploration purposes. While the conditions encountered in the well were not suitable for developing a conventional hydrothermal system, the information obtained suggested the region may be suitable for an enhanced geothermal system.

Geophysical well logs were collected in both wells to obtain useful information regarding there nature of the subsurface materials. For the recent testing of 58-32, the Utah FORGE Project contracted with the well services company Schlumberger to collect the well logs.
