The use of nonreactive isotopic tracers coupled to a full thermal-hydrological reservoir simulation allows for an improved method of investigating how reservoir fluids contained within matrix and fractures contribute over time to fluids produced from geot
In September of 2010, GreenFire Energy received a US Department of Energy grant to attempt a real-world trial of CO2-based geothermal energy (CO2G) at a site on the St. Johns-Springerville CO2 Dome near the Arizona-New Mexico border. Though CO2G was propo
The Los Azufres Geothermal Field in Mexico is a typical high temperature hydrothermal system along convergent plate boundaries. Models of high-temperature-pressure experiments and geochemical simulation calculations have been performed. Natural rock sampl
One of the most potential geothermal resources that was found very early and extensively studied by the international geothermics and domestic geologists so far is Hoi Van hot spring in Central Vietnam. The recent studies have shown that the Hoi Van geoth

RRC Rules Having Statewide General Application to Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resource Operations Within the State of Texas 1985
Several shallow wells and one deep well recently drilled in the Atlantic Coastal Plan have indicated the existence of warm water geothermal resources. A detailed study of the direct application of this geothermal energy for the production of hot process w
The abatement of hydrogen sulfide in geothermal power plants has under gone considerable change in recent years. More stringent regulatory requirements for H2S abatement have increased costs. This paper will review the history of abatement technology, discuss the effect of operating conditions on the requirements for abatement processes, review process choices for both primary and secondary abatement, and provide two case examples of the economics of the Dow Chemical Company's GAS-SPEC RT-2 technology and the SulFerox Technology (1,2,3).
In this study, characteristics of geothermal resources in Western Turkey are presented, and their influence on the performance of power plants is described. The performance of existing single flash, double flash, and binary ORC power plants are compared a
The expansion of geothermal energy in France began as the result of the energy crisis in the 1970s, with an important development of activity from 1978 to 1987, when the energy prices fell. During this period, more than 70 geothermal district heating plan
Methods of removing fluorides from water are reviewed and recommendations are made for treating geothermal water used by the Boise Geothermal Project, Boise, Idaho. The Boise geothermal water except for its high fluoride content would be high quality, suitable for primary drinking water. Fluoride ranges from about 15 to 25 mg/l i n water from various wells in the Boise region where the Project plans t o obtain hot water. Four techniques for removing fluorides from water have been studied extensively during the past 15 years or so. Electrodialysis and reverse osmosis are useful n reducing total dissolved solids from brackish water, but are nonspecific and are too expensive for treatment of the Boise geothermal water.

As part of a U.S. Department of Energy sponsored program to assist locating a production well to supply a proposed, small scale geothermal power plant, two exploratory (thermal gradient) boreholes were drilled in the fall of 2001 on private lands belonging to Milgro Newcastle, Inc., a floral greenhouse operator, near Newcastle, Utah. Newcastle is the site of a moderate to high temperature geothermal system. Temperature depth measurements recorded in exploratory drill holes MN 6 and MN 7 were about 10 percent below the anticipated results for this part of the geothermal field.
