    Geothermal systems occur where subsurface permeability and temperature are sufficiently high to drive fluid circulation. In the Great Basin region of the United States, which hosts ~20% of domestic geothermal electricity generation capacity and much of the projected undeveloped and undiscovered resource, crustal heat flow is relatively high, so. In , the United States Energy Research and Development Administration (now DOE) began funding studies of the geopressured-geothermal resource that performed geologic assessments of the Gulf Coast geopressured-geothermal potential. The scope of the program was later expanded to include projects that sought 1) to physically verify the.

Technical Report: Consolidated Research Program, United States Gulf Coast Geopressured- Geothermal Program. The Gulf Coast Geopressured-Geothermal Program determined the following: (1) high brine flow rates can be obtained for long periods of time; (2) after gas extraction, brine can be successfully reinjected into shallow aquifers without affecting the surface waters or the fresh water aquifers; (4) no observable subsidence or microseismic activity.

The logging research program in the DOE Geopressured-Geothermal Energy Project was set up to (a) carry out research on logging problems important to the DOE program; (b) provide advice on logging programs in DOE wells; (c) monitor log quality during data acquisition; (d) provide log analyses as requested by DOE and (e) provide other services as skills and time Author: Henry F.

Dunlap. Technical Report: Continuity and internal properties of Gulf Coast sandstones and their implications for geopressured energy development. Annual report, November 1, Octo Annual report, November 1, Octo Multiphase fluid flow equations and constitutive relationships describing deformable, anisotropic, heterogeneous, and nonisothermal reservoirs such as the Gulf Coast geopressured geothermal aquifers were derived.

This mathematical model has been numerically solved using a computer program. Reservoir drive mechanisms considered include fluid and rock matrix.

Potential geopressured geothermal reservoirs in the Vicksburg Formation are limited to Hidalgo County along the Lower Texas Gulf Coast.

In Hidalgo County, an area of approximately square miles (designated the Vicksburg Fairway) contains up to feet of geopressured sandstone with fluid temperatures greater than /sup 0/F.

Located in Brazoria, Texas, the site was used from   Published geothermal gradient maps of south- western United States (NICHOLS ; MOSES ) show the northern Gulf of Mexico basin as a negative geothermal area (Figure I).

These maps are based upon temperatures measured at depths generally less than 2 km; they show decreasing geothermal gradients in the direction of the geosynclinal axis. Interest in these resources focuses on electric power production, direct heat application, and methane production from the geopressured aquifers.}, doi = {}, journal = {Texas Univ.

This paper describes an assessment of the enhanced geothermal system (EGS) resource base of the conterminous United States, using constructed temperature at depth maps.

The temperature at depth maps were computed from 3 to 10 km, for every km. The methodology is described. Factors included are sediment thickness, thermal conductivity variations. Continuous microseismic monitoring networks have been established around three US Department of Energy geopressured-geothermal design wells in southwestern Louisiana since summer to assess the effects well development may have on subsidence and growth fault activation.

The results obtained from this monitoring have shown several unusual characteristics associated with Gulf Coast .
