APPLICATION OF A COMPUTER MODEL TO THE STUDY OF THE GEOTHERMAL FIELD OF MOFETE, ITALY.
The aim of the study was to develop a reliable and comprehensive reservoir simulation package for a better understanding of "in-situ" processes pertinent to geothermal reservoir hydrodynamics and thermodynamics, and to enable an assessment of optimum reservoir management strategies as to production and reinjection policies. The study consists of four parts: The first deals with the computer programme. This is based on a programme called CHARG developed in the US. Some adaptation was necessary. The second part concerns the fall-off and pit tests of the geothermal well close to Naples Mofete 2. This has been a crucial test for the CHARG model using asymmetric cylindrical coordinates and 14 different layers. Part three deals with predictions about longevity of the geothermal field of Mofete. The area is divided into 2500 blocs distributed over 14 layers. Several configurations (various numbers of production and reinjection wells) have been tested. The last chapter deals witha comparison between the ISMES reservoir model, based on the finite elements approach and the AGIP model (finite differences). Both models give nearly the same results when applied to the geothermal field of Travale.
