Magnetotelluric monitoring of a fluid injection : Example from an enhanced geothermal system

  title={Magnetotelluric monitoring of a fluid injection : Example from an enhanced geothermal system},

[1] Enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) are on the verge of becoming commercially viable for power production, where advancements in subsurface characterization are imperative to develop EGS into a competitive industry. Theory of an EGS is simple, pump fluids into thermally enhanced lithology and extract the hot fluids to produce energy. One significant complication in EGS development is estimating where injected fluids flow in the subsurface. Micro-seismic surveys can provide information about… CONTINUE READING
