Title: Improvements in 2016 to Natural Reservoir Analysis in Low-Temperature Geothermal Play Fairway Analysis for the Appalachian Basin

Abstract

*These files add to and replace same-named files found within Submission 559 (hover over file display names to see actual file names in bottom-left corner of screen)* The files included in this submission contain all data pertinent to the methods and results of a cohesive multi-state analysis of all known potential geothermal reservoirs in sedimentary rocks in the Appalachian Basin region, ranked by their potential favorability. Favorability is quantified using three metrics: Reservoir Productivity Index for water; Reservoir Productivity Index; Reservoir Flow Capacity. The metrics are explained in the Reservoirs Methodology Memo (included in zip file). The product represents a minimum spatial extent of potential sedimentary rock geothermal reservoirs. Only natural porosity and permeability were analyzed. Shapefile and images of the spatial distributions of these reservoir quality metrics and of the uncertainty on these metrics are included as well. UPDATE: Accompanying geologic reservoirs data may be found at: https://gdr.openei.org/submissions/881 (linked below).
