Report on achievements in fiscal 1975 in Sunshine Project. Studies on a technology to measure inside of wells; 1975 nendo koseinai sokutei gijutsu ni kansuru kenkyu seika hokokusho

Abstract

In order to identify the actual status of geothermal reservoirs, development is made on a technology to detect cracks in a geothermal reservoir. This fiscal year has launched development of a PS sonic logging device of well wall compression type, which is considered most effective in crack detection. This device has a number of new development elements such as a mechanism to have a transmitter and a receiver compressed on a geologic stratum to send sonic energy directly into the stratum, simultaneous use of S-wave having excellent characteristics in evaluating crack faces quantitatively and calculating porosities, and a cooling mechanism for electronics installed in the wells. Combining this with a micro seismogram log scheduled to be fabricated in fiscal 1976 will form the mainstream of crack face detection. A continual flow meter measures behavior of steam and hot water to identify flow-out or flow-in patterns and depths of fluid in wells under flowing condition. Adding this meter to temperature and pressure elements scheduled to be developed in fiscal 1976 will provide data to give an important guideline in underground heat production. This meter was attempted with enhancement in heat and pressure resistant characteristics and stabilization of operation for design and  More>>
