Enhanced geothermal system (EGS) well stimulation design and simulation using DFN-based model : Newberry EGS case study
A conceptual model of the Newberry EGS (Enhanced Geothermal System) project stimulation program for well NWG 55-29 has been developed. A discrete fracture network (DFN) model is embedded in the simulation to investigate effect of in situ stress state and natural fractures or faults properties. The local in situ stress information has been revisited and a new interpretation is proposed. Simulation results using the conceptual model are compared to a case of previously published stress information. To revisit the stress determination, compressive failure around a wellbore has been analyzed and ...
