Present methods are described for the collection, preservation, and chemical analysis of waters produced from geopressured geothermal and petroleum wells. Detailed procedures for collection include precautions and equipment necessary to ensure that the sample is representative of the water.

Many of the environmental considerations discussed in this report would be equally applicable to the operation of such a gas field. The geopressured geothermal resource is currently being considered pri- marily as a source of electrical power. We exploit the concept of the geothermal favourability, widely used for hydrothermal and EGS systems, to present an innovative methodology for assessing geopressured-geothermal resources occurring in terrigenous units in sedimentary basin plays.

Geopressured-geothermal systems are an unconventional resource for power trigeneration exploiting three forms of energy from hydrocarbons. Accurate and precise measurements of the concentration of CAA in formation waters may be made by various analytical techniques, the most popular of which is ion chromatography.

However, in complex mixtures this analysis is nontrivial; adjustments to the analytical technique may have to be made, and multiple runs performed on a single sample. Geochemical studies of geothermal fluids involve three main steps: 1) sample collection, 2) chemical analysis and 3) data interpretation [11].

The types of samples collected in this study were condensates from four fumaroles (Table 1) in the Olkaria field and thereafter, full analysis as stipulated by Zhong-He and Armannsson [12] was done.

Groundwater sampling and analysis is an activity within projects dealing with carbon capture and storage, mineral exploration, geothermal and energy resources, as well as for groundwater resource. Electrical methods or resistivity methods are the most important geophysical methods in the surface exploration of geothermal areas, and as such the main methods used in delineating geothermal resources and production fields.

The parameter of interest is the electrical resistivity of the rocks which correlates both with the temperature and alteration of the rocks which are key parameters for the understanding of the geothermal.

Exploration for geothermal resources typically uses geologic mapping, geochemical analysis of water from hot springs and geophysical techniques commonly used by the mining industry. With advances in seismic techniques, reflection seismic surveys are increasingly being used.

Over four years of production well monitoring at Weyburn, measured changes in chemical and isotopic data for produced aqueous fluids and gases (i.e. an increase in. Seventy-six samples of formation waters were collected from oil wells producing from the Aux Vases or Cypress Formations in the Illinois Basin.

Forty core samples of the reservoir rocks were also collected from the two formations. Analyses of the samples indicated that the total dissolved solids content (TDS) of the waters ranged f tomg/L, far exceeding mg/L of.

They are used in major plants to remove SO4 from seawater injected into oil field reservoirs for pressure maintenance (Bilstad, ), and to remove organic compounds in effluent from paper plants (Afonso et al., ) and in groundwater (Fu et al., ).

Overview: The Geopressured-Geothermal Resource Geothermal energy resources are present in several forms, which can be distinguished from one another as: hydrothermal (available ground water is heated by hot rock formations adjacent to magma), petrothermal (near magma, hot-dry rock formations) and Geopressured-Geothermal (GPGT) (Seni, [21]).

•A Geopressured Geothermal resource is an over -pressured body of hot water, saturated with methane gas, which flows to the surface and can be re- injected under its own power •The resource has two sources of energy – geothermal heat and natural gas.

of supplying geothermal energy for electric power generation: (a) a producing oil or gas well with a water cut, (b) an oil or gas well abandoned because of a high water cut, and (c) a geopressured brine well with dissolved gas.

This paper considers the basic technical and economic aspects of power generations from each of the three types of. Geothermal exploration is the exploration of the subsurface in search of viable active geothermal regions with the goal of building a geothermal power plant, where hot fluids drive turbines to create electricity.

Exploration methods include a broad range of disciplines including geology, geophysics, geochemistry and engineering. Geothermal regions with adequate heat flow to fuel power plants.

Three forms of potential geothermal energy may exist in the State of Texas: hot rocks in the Trans Pecos region, convection type geothermal water in the Rio Grande Rift basin, and geopressured geothermal water along the Gulf Coast.

Of these, only the geopressured waters have been verified. Geothermal Resource. A geothermal resource can be defined as a reservoir inside the Earth from which heat can be extracted economically (cost wise less expensive than or comparable with other conventional sources of energy—such as hydroelectric power or fossil fuels) and utilized for generating electric power or any other suitable industrial, agricultural or domestic application in the.

The gravity method also enables a prediction of the total anomalous mass (ore tonnage) responsible for an anomaly.

Gravity and magnetic (discussed below) methods detect only lateral contrasts in density or magnetization, respectively. In contrast, electrical and seismic methods can detect vertical, as well as lateral, contrasts of resistivity.

The book considers water as a single entity, and presents many examples illustrating the variety of existing hydrogeological problems and the diverse scientific, technical, and social approaches.

The methods used to rotate a turbine by obtaining wet steam or dry steam depend on the properties of geothermal fluid. Geothermal sources are classified into four types; steam dominated, liquid dominated, hot dry rock and geopressured sources.

There are power cycles for these sources. In addition to the geopressured-geothermal energy resource, the potential also exists for the oil and gas industry to capitalize on coproduced hot water where a binary power plant can extract heat for electrical production that can be used either by the company for onsite application, or sold to a local utility as a new profit stream.Summary This paper evaluates the technical potential, the energy balance, and the economics of reinjecting produced brines into geopressured/geothermal aquifers.
