Research Interests
  • This study develops an approach for estimating the most probable production rate of steam and/or water at a geothermal field reasonably and efficiently. The estimation at the decision of commissioning a power plant and its output is especially addressed because this decision has the largest impact to success or failure of the geothermal developmental project through economic efficiency. Adopting a stochastic method and original reservoir simulator focusing on changes in reservoir pressure and tracer concentrations during production and reinjection, uncertainty of the probable production rate as well as the economic risk of the project are estimated quantitatively.
