Mineralogical and organopetrographic analysis were carried out on core samples of four geothermal wells from the Aliaga geothermal field located in western Turkey. Whole rock mineralogy and clay minerals were determined, and thermal maturity of the different levels of the formation was defined by means of vitrinite reflectance measurements. The measured maturity gradients compiled from analytical data for four wells and outcrops ranged from low to very high values.

Kürkçüoğlu, Biltan; Furman, Tanya; Pickard, Megan; Şen, Erdal; Hanan, Barry; Şen, Pınar; Sayıt, Kaan; Yürür, Mehmet Tekin (2016-05-16)
Extensive volcanic activities were developed in Central Anatolia, due to dynamic nature o f the tectonic regime. Although the most of the volcanic zones are represented by major Stratovolcanoes, severe basaltic magmatism with lack of the central cones, were generated over all the Central Anatolia. In this study, we focus on Sivas mafic product s to shed more light on the mantle components, beneath the central Anatolia , that were not investigated in depth so far. Sivas mafic lavas are the mo...
Carbon dioxide injection field pilot in umurlu geothermal field, Turkey
Yücetaş, İsmet; Ergiçay, Nevzat; Akın, Serhat (null; 2018-01-01)
The Umurlu geothermal reservoir located in Buyuk Menderes Graben, Turkey initially contained around 2% by weight CO_2 dissolved in geothermal reservoir fluid. The produced CO_2 rate declined over one year of production time due to dilution of reservoir gas by degassed injectate. Since CO_2 has a considerable role on Umurlu reservoir performance and energy production, produced non-condensable gas (NCG) has been injected simultaneously with colder degassed injectate from an injection well for the last two mon...
Comparative Pyrolysis and Combustion Kinetics of Oil Shales
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2000-02-01)
In this research, thermal characteristics and kinetic parameters of eight Turkish oil shale samples were determined by thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) at non-isothermal heating conditions both for pyrolysis and combustion processes. A general computer program was developed and the methods are compared with regard to their accuracy and the ease of interpretation of the kinetics of thermal decomposition. Activation energies of the samples were determined by five different methods and the results are discussed.
Petrogenesis of the Neogene-Quaternary mafic lavas from the Tunceli-Elazığ region (Eastern Turkey)
Aktağ, Alican; Sayıt, Kaan; Department of Geological Engineering (2022-1-27)
The most primitive members of the Late Miocene Tunceli and Pleistocene Elazığ mafic volcanics within the Eastern Anatolian Volcanic Province (EAVP) preserve details regarding the chemical geodynamics of eastern Anatolia. This study, therefore, primarily aims to establish the chemical composition of the source components that have contributed to these volcanics to enhance the understanding of the nature of mantle domains beneath eastern Anatolia. Quantitative modelings suggest that at least three distinct c...
Characterization and Comparison of geothermal fluids geochemistry within the Kızıldere Geothermal Field in Turkey: New findings with power capacity expanding studies
Tut Haklıdır , Füsun S.; Şengün, Raziye; Aydın, Hakkı (Elsevier BV, 2021-7)
The Kızıldere geothermal field is the first known high-temperature geothermal field in Turkey. The field is located in the Büyük Menderes Graben (BMG), Western Anatolia (Turkey). There are four production sections (reservoir-I, II, III, and IV) with different rock compositions and geochemical characteristics in the production area. Identifying and characterizing these production units may give a good insight into field development plans for a sustainable production. This study aims to characterize productio...
