Geothermal Reservoir Engineering, 2nd Edition - Elsevier
As nations alike struggle to diversify and secure their power portfolios, geothermal
energy, the essentially limitless heat emanating from the earth itself, is being
harnessed at an unprecedented rate.
For the last 25 years, engineers around the world tasked with taming this
raw power have used Geothermal
Reservoir Engineering as both a training manual and a professional reference.
This long-awaited second edition of Geothermal
Reservoir Engineering is a practical guide to the issues and tasks geothermal
engineers encounter in the course of their daily jobs. Geothermal
Reservoir Engineering focuses particularly on the evaluation of potential
sites and provides detailed guidance on the field management of the power plants
built on them.
With over 100 pages of new material informed by the breakthroughs of the last
25 years, Geothermal
Reservoir Engineering remains the only training tool and professional reference
dedicated to advising both new and experienced geothermal reservoir engineers.
- The only resource available to help geothermal professionals make
smart choices in field site selection and reservoir management
- Practical focus eschews theory and basics- getting right to the
heart of the important issues encountered in the field
- Updates include coverage of advances in EGS (enhanced geothermal
systems), well stimulation, well modeling, extensive field histories and preparing
data for reservoir simulation
- Case studies provide cautionary tales and best practices that can
only be imparted by a seasoned expert
