OPC performed modelling of a geothermal open-loop doublet system (injector and producer). The objective was to perform NODAL analysis using a range of sensitivities to develop scenarios and outline recommendations based on the result of the simulation. The project included an assessment of the corrosion within the well-bore and facilities.
The result of the project outlined to the client a range of recommendations regarding long-lead time items such as Electronic Submersible Pump (ESP) and tubing and casing. OPC made a series of recommendations which will led to a number of efficiencies regarding injectivity, productivity, and ultimately improving the long-term performance of the geothermal power generating capacity. OPC also outlined a strategy to mitigate corrosion through metallurgy and material selection.
