Title: University of Illinois Campus Deep Direct-Use Feasibility Study - Preliminary Geothermal Reservoir Model

Abstract

Preliminary geothermal reservoir simulations were performed using a homogeneous static model to evaluate and understand the effects of fluid and rock properties that could influence the delivery of thermal energy in a doublet system. A 5000 feet by 5100 feet by 500 feet homogeneous model having a constant porosity and permeability of 20% and 100 mD was used to perform preliminary geothermal reservoir simulations. The model was discretized in the x-, y-, and z-directions into 100, 101, and 100, gridblocks. Two wells were placed on the opposite ends of the central column of the discretized model. One of the wells was designated as a producer and the other an injector. Equal volumes of water was extracted and then injected into the reservoir via the production and injection wells. Water was extracted at a temperature of 109 deg F and re-injected at 50 deg F at the 1000 bbl/day. The files attached contains the input and output files of this simulation case. The input and some of the output files can be viewed in any text editor.
