Pressure decline with respect to time is one of the main concerns in geothermal field management. In order to maintain the reservoir pressure, a sustainable reinjection strategy is needed. In this study, a numerical model ...
Optimization of Production and Injection of Geothermal Fields: A Machine Learning Approach
başer, ali; KÜÇÜK, SERHAT; saraçoğlu, önder; şentürk, erdinç; Akın, Serhat (2021-10-01)
Optimizing field injection and production requires a calibrated numerical model, typically consisting of thousands of grid blocks. Optimization carried out using such a model usually takes a very long time. If the numerica...
Soil CO2 Flux and Temperature Measurements in Kızıldere Geothermal Field
KÜÇÜK, SERHAT; başer, ali; saraçoğlu, önder; AKIN, TAYLAN; şentürk, erdinç; tüzen, mahmut kaan; Akın, Serhat (2021-10-01)
Geothermal fields in Turkey have substantially higher carbon dioxide content compared to a typical geothermal field in the world. Geothermal Emission Control (GECO) project aims to reduce carbon emissions by reinjecting pr...
CO2 Decline in Alaşehir (Turkey) Geothermal Reservoir
Akın, Serhat; Aydın, Hakkı; AKIN, TAYLAN (2021-10-01)
Reinjection of gas free of brine into the peripheries of a geothermal reservoir may gradually decline non-condensable gas (NCG) concentration in the reservoir fluid during the operation of geothermal power plants. As a res...
