Abstract

A management model is developed that determines the optimum economic recoverability of a hot-water geothermal reservoir undergoing exploitation for electric power generation. Integrates a physical model of the reservoir that predicts the areas of pressure decline due to withdrawals, and pressure rise due to reinjection of spent fluid, with a model of a two-stage steam turbine power plant that determines the quantity of electricity generated for a rate of hot-water extraction. Capital-, variable- and annual fixed costs are obtained for development, extraction and reinjection, the transmission system, and the power plant. Revenues are determined for electrical power production. Application of the model to a simplified, yet realistic example demonstrates that the methodology developed can be used for analyzing the management of an integrated geothermal reservoir power plant system.-from Authors
