This experiment is testing the tube waves reflected from the bottom of the well. We put six single-channel geophones on the surface and a 24-channel downhole hydrophone into the well. The well is about 30 meters deep. Just a steel casing in the sand formation, no cement. Surface seismic and VSP data

This test was conducted at the Chevron Cymric oilfield in the California central valley near Bakersfield. A reflected seismic signal was observed in all three components (x, y, z) of the 3-component Episensor geophone, as well as all phones on the single component array. The arrival time of the reflected seismic signal matches calculations based on a reasonable velocity model (~650 m/s). The seismic data has three channels that are from the 3-C Broadband Episensor, then from 4th -- 12th channels has no data. Channel 13 -- 25 are surface single change vertical geophones. The source of this seismic survey is weight drop. More info could be found from the data header and the attached PPT file. Seismic data: The first three channels are from the 3-C Broadband Episensor, then from 4th -- 12th channels has no data. Channel 13 -- 25 are surface single change vertical geophones. The source of this seismic survey is weight drop. More info could be found from the data header.

The steel pipe experiment conducted in the lab was using 6 meter low-carbon steel pipe. We tested it with both dry and in-water condition. In the dry experimental setup, a coaxial cable acting as a return path in the air. TDR experiment on the steel pipe at the dry condition with short termination.

For the model calculation we applied EM3D using completion diagram of CaMI site and a background resistivity consistent with the borehole logs. It was also important to use the accurate position of the return electrode. We note that for the data fit the code also incorporated well casings for well INJ and the other observation well, either OB1 or OB2, in the calculation.

In summary, we demonstrate here, for this particular case, that the DC results may be a reasonable approximation to the low frequency EM data collected at CaMI. If this approximation continues to hold, then the extreme computational efficiency offered by the hierarchical modeling used in the DC simulations will permit us to explore far more model complexity, especially the pervasive and troublesome data artifacts that arise when doing EM surveys in mature, culturally developed sites.

In Brief, both the low frequency and DC simulation codes provided very consistent results that match the field data really well, indicating their capability to help monitoring borehole integrity with the low frequency EM method. Field low frequency EM data for excitation of Observation Well 2 using a 5 Hz source frequency. Data is provided as distance form wellhead (m) and Ex field amplitude (V/m).

The large scale Deep Direct Use (DDU) geothermal project in the low temperature environment of the Illinois Basin requires drilling and completing two wells. One well would be the extraction (producing) well and would be built to deliver a flow rate of approximately 6000 barrels per day (bpd) of brine from the lower part of the Mt. Simon Sandstone at a depth of approximately 6300 feet bgs (below ground surface). The injection well would be constructed to return the produced brine into the upper part of the Mt. Simon Sandstone at a depth of approximately 5250 feet bgs. Well design diagrams, discussions, details, and cost info for DDU extraction and injection wells at University of Illinois.
