This dataset provides information gathered to determine end use load and assessment of existing DHS. It also provides Aspen simulation files used to model hybrid geothermal natural gas GDHC system along with Exchange Design and Rating (EDR) files to design Plate Heat Exchanger (PHE) and Capital cost estimator project set up used for capital cost evaluation of surface plant and retrofit distribution lines. In addition, ChemCAD files used for preliminary analysis of conversion of steam-based to hot water based system are included. A combination of proprietary and free software may be required to view some of the information provided. Software used for surface modeling, capital cost analysis include ASPEN Suite (HYSYS, EDR, ACCE). For ACCE template files, you will have to change the directories of the files to match your computer. The purpose of this document is to describe the contents of information contained within this submission to the Geothermal Data Repository (GDR) node of the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS) in support of Feasibility of Deep Direct-Use Geothermal on the West Virginia University Campus-Morgantown, WV.

This dataset contains figures that summarize the Tuscarora Sandstone core permeability data collected from the Preston 119 well in Preston County, WV, and summary results of a stochastic analysis that was used to estimate reservoir productivity for the currently unexplored Tuscarora Sandstone below Morgantown, West Virginia. Uncertainties in reservoir productivity considered the thickness of the reservoir, rock permeability, and fluid viscosity. A Monte Carlo analysis of these uncertain properties was used to predict reservoir flow productivity for the case of a matrix-dominated reservoir, and a fracture-dominated reservoir. These results are summarized in figures, spreadsheets, and maps. Contains figures illustrating the permeability data collected from core measurements sampled from the Preston 119 well in Preston County, WV. Raw air permeability-depth data were provided by the West Virginia Geologic and Economic Survey (WVGES)

To reduce the geothermal exploration risk, a feasibility study is performed for a deep direct-use system proposed at the West Virginia University (WVU) Morgantown campus. This study applies numerical simulations to investigate reservoir impedance and thermal production. Because of the great depth of the geothermal reservoir, few data are available to characterize reservoir features and properties. As a result, the study focuses on the following three aspects: 1. model choice for predicting reservoir impedance and thermal breakthrough: after investigating three potential models (one single permeability model and two dual permeability models) for flow through fractured rock, it is decided to use single permeability model for further analysis; 2. well placement (horizontal vs. vertical) options: horizontal well placement seems to be more robust to heterogeneity and the impedance is more acceptable; 3. Prediction uncertainty: the most influential parameters are identified using a First-Order-Second-Moment uncertainty propagation analysis, and the uncertain range of the model predictions is estimated by performing a Monte Carlo simulation. Heterogeneity has a large impact on the perdition, therefore, is considered in the predictive model and uncertainty analysis. The numerical model results and uncertainty analysis are used for economic analysis. The dataset submitted here support the described study. Manuscript is submitted to Geothermics, will be linked once paper is accepted. Contains input/output files for the FOSM analysis described in input/output files for the single K model with horizontal well layout described in the manuscript and final report. The results are summarized in Table 3.

The Snake River Plain (SRP), Idaho, hosts potential geothermal resources due to elevated groundwater temperatures associated with the thermal anomaly Yellowstone-Snake River hotspot. Project HOTSPOT has coordinated international institutions and organizations to understand subsurface stratigraphy and assess geothermal potential. Over 5.9km of core were drilled from three boreholes within the SRP in an attempt to acquire continuous core documenting the volcanic and sedimentary record of the hotspot: (1) Kimama, (2) Kimberly, and (3) Mountain Home. The Kimama drill site was set up to acquire a continuous record of basaltic volcanism along the central volcanic axis and to test the extent of geothermal resources beneath the Snake River aquifer. This submission includes photos of the core samples taken from the Kimberly drill hole.

The data files below summarize the results from various experiments testing properties of high-temperature self-healing inorganic cement composites. These properties include cement-carbon steel bond strength, Young's modulus recovery, matrix recovery strength, and compressive strength and Yonug's modulus for cement composites modified with Pozzolanic Clay additives. Bond strength data for cement composites adhering to carbon steel cured for 1 day at 300degC in three different environments (water, sodium carbonate, geothermal brine), de-bonded and healed for 5 days at 300degC in the same environments. The original (before the de-bonding) and recovered bond strengths and Young's modulus are reported for alkali activated cement (TSRC: Calcium Aluminate Cement/ Fly Ash F/ Sodium metasilicate), chemical cement (CAP: Calcium Aluminate Cement/ Fly Ash F/ Sodium hexaphosphate), Slag-based- and Portland-based cements (class G modified with silica) and for these composites modified with 5 or 10% of Micro Glass Fibers (MGF). The original composites and 5% MGF-modified composites also included 10 or 5% (respectively) of Micro Carbon Fibers (MCF) to control crack formation and propagation.

This submission contains information used to compute the risk factors for the GPFA-AB project. The risk factors are natural reservoir quality, thermal resource quality, potential for induced seismicity, and utilization. The methods used to combine the risk factors included taking the product, sum, and minimum of the four risk factors.
The files are divided into images, rasters, shapefiles, and supporting information. The image files show what the raster and shapefiles should look like. The raster files contain the input risk factors, calculation of the scaled risk factors, and calculation of the combined risk factors. The shapefiles include definition of the fairways, definition of the US Census Places, the center of the raster cells, and locations of industries. Supporting information contains details of the calculations or processing used in generating the files. An image of the raster will have the same name except *.png as the file ending instead of *.tif. Images with 'fairways' or 'industries' added to the name are composed of a raster with the relevant shapefile added.
