Description/Abstract:The purpose of this research program is to create a Design Manual for the design of geothermal production wells that operate in the two-phase flow regime. The team of the Denver Research Institute (contractor) and subcontractors Coury and Associates and the University of Houston are cooperating to achieve this purpose. The role of the Denver Research Institute has included overall administration of the contract, acquisition and handling of two-phase flow data, contacts with other organizations, and development of a probe to measure pressure and temperature in geothermal wells with a precision not previously available, and in real time. For performing the functions involved in placing the measuring probe in a well, the U.S. Geological Survey in Denver has agreed to employ the measuring probe in some of their geothermal test series. The necessity to develop this measuring probe has delayed other portions of the program, but the probe is now almost ready for use, and a calibrating system has been constructed for the probe.
