Geothermal Resource Assessment of Alasehir Geothermal Field

Alaşehir geothermal area located in Alaşehir Graben, West Anatolia – Turkey is the current target for geothermal field development. Currently, more than 6 operators are developing the power capacity in this field on a strictly competitive, and largely confidential, basis without significant exchange of resource information among them. Although there are three binary and a combined flash-binary power plants with widely changing power generation efficiency between plants, additional new plant capacity will be installed before 2020 due to attractive geothermal incentives. Power supply capability of the field is discussed considering economic and physical reliability using heat in place method. Discussions on the performance of the field is also included using different development scenarios.
