Update from the Field: Well Logging Completed!

September 16, 2013

It’s been a busy few weeks at the Newberry EGS Demonstration field site, and we’re happy to report that we’ve completed both the injectivity test and well logging activities. Over the next few weeks we’ll be carrying out an additional seismic study, continuing our groundwater monitoring program and buttoning up the site for the winter months ahead.

While we’re still processing data and interpreting the results as data is collected in the field, we’d like to share a few of our favorite photos from this summer.

Setting up well logging equipment at the 55-29 well pad: a pipeline from the on-site water well provided clean groundwater for the injectivity test (lower right). The boom truck (left) was used to remove heavy parts from the wellhead before the logging truck (center) lowered scientific instruments into the well to collect data.

A ‘dummy’ tool was run into and out of the well prior to deploying well logging instruments to be sure the wellbore was free from obstructions (top left). Heat-tolerant camera used to image the inside of the well during logging (top right). Caliper tool used to gather data inside the well and assess the condition of the steel casingthat lines the well to over 6,000 feet below ground surface (bottom).

    My brother suggested I would possibly like this web site.
    He was totally right. This post truly made my day.
    You can not consider simply how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
