The Role of Stress Modeling in Stimulation Planning at the Newberry Volcano Egs Demonstration Project


Field work and planning has begun on the Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) Demonstration Project at Newberry Volcano in central Oregon. The tectonic and volcanic setting of the site suggests that the stress state and fracture patterns may be complex. Because the stress state is a primary control on the growth of an EGS reservoir, the technical team has… (More)
