Effect of Condensate of Steam Chemistry at the Geysers Field

Basic Information
Author: Enedy, S., and Klein, C.W.
Description:Injection of steam condensate back into the Geysers reservoir produces shifts in the chemistry of produced steam at nearby wells.Specifically, these effects include: 1) change sin the spacial variation of non-condensible gas to steam ratio; 2) changes in the 18 concentrations of stable isotopes 180 and deuterium; 3) shifts in the abundance of gas species Ar, N2 and NH3, and 4) changes in calculated gas thermometric and steam saturation factors. This geochemical information, when combined with other reservoir data, has been used to assist in the targeting of new injection wells.
