Article on a new reservoir model to support environmental monitoring of geothermal systems

February 2016

Simon Arthur conducted research into the Orakeikorako geothermal system as part of his engineering thesis and was subsequently employed by the University of Auckland Geothermal Institute to co-author his research into a journal paper, recently published in Geothermics. The paper demonstrates that even with limited down-hole data, accurate reservoir models can be developed and calibrated using detailed surface measurements. This is an important finding for modelling other protected geothermal systems and for the early stage assessment of geothermal energy resources.
