Dynamic Simulation of a Geothermal Reservoir: Case Study of the Dinantian Carbonates in the Californië Geothermal Wells, Limburg, NL (2018)
MSc thesis by former intern Dominique Reith.
The dynamic results in this study show that the permeability configuration applied in the best case scenario results in BHP, flow rate and temperature values that are of the correct order of magnitude and within an acceptable error margin of the production data. Multiple sensitivities have been simulated to determine the range of parameters that may cause an inaccuracy in the results. Additional data acquisition is necessary to validate and optimize the static model, which will result in a dynamic model with an improved history match and a larger predictive power for future production and reservoir management.
