Periodic measurement of flow rate in production wells is essential to monitor performance of geothermal wells and reservoir. Tracerdilution method has been introduced as a reliable, cheap and environment friendly technique to measure mass flow rate and enthalpy intwo phase geothermal systems. In this study, Sodium Fluorescein is used to measure liquid phase mass flow rate in a two phase productionline and in a single phase liquid injection line. The study includes the effect of flow regime and flowrate on the accuracy of tracer flowtest. The test results obtained for several wells in Alaşehir and Kizildere geothermal fields are confirmed with silencer-weir box methodand results of the test in a single phase liquid line is verified with orifice plate meter.
