Drilling and completion report, Raft River Geothermal Injection No. 4 (RRGI-4): Idaho Operations. Three conservative tracer tests have been conducted through the Bridge Fault fracture zone at the Raft River Geothermal (RRG) site. All three tests were conducted between injection well RRG-5 and production wells RRG-1 ( m distance) and RRG-4 ( m distance). The injection well is used during the summer months to provide pressure support to.

First, the water level in Monitor Well-4 (MW-4) increased an average of m/week during injection, indicating direct fracture connection between the injection zone and the aquifer penetrated by MW The objective of this study is to evaluate the injection capability Wells RRGI-6 and 7 (Figure 2) are to be used for This paper presents our analysis of several injectivity tests performed A.

US Geothermal's Raft River project is now complete. The addition of a new production well (RRG-5) and an upgraded injection pump during have resulted in a total annual average increase of net MW of generation at Raft River.

The upgraded injection pump was installed in August, after which the flow rate from RRG-5 was increased and additional flow from rebalancing the wellfield was realized. Well RRG-9 is currently undergoing a stimulation program using injectate from the US Geothermal Raft River Power Plant and cold water from a cooling tower make-up water well.

The stimulation began on 13 June with injection from the power plant at a temperature of about. Between and84 wells were drilled at Raft River, including seven deep wells intended for production and injection of the geothermal fluids (Covington, ).

From late to Junethe DOE operated a geothermal demonstration plant that generated 4 MWe net from fluids ranging in temperature from °C to ° by: Using data from injection and production well tests, Geothermal Science Inc.

Geothermal Inc. provided an update on its Raft River expansion project. Phase II of the ongoing plan to increase the output at Raft River from its current generation level of 10 MWs, up to its contract maximum of 13 MWs, commenced in March with the successful installation of the pump in well RRG   The addition of a new production well (RRG-5) and an upgraded injection pump during have resulted in a total annual average increase of net megawatts of generation at Raft River.

The upgraded injection pump was installed in August, after which the flow rate from RRG-5 was increased and additional flow from rebalancing the wellfield was. The Raft River geothermal reservoir is located in Cassia County Idaho approximately 6 miles north of the Utah/Idaho border near the town of Malta (Figure 1).

Raft River Geothermal Injection Well Six (RRGI-6) is an intermediate-depth injection well designed to accept injection water in the to m ( to ft) depth range. It has one barefoot leg, and it was drilled so that additional legs can be added later; if there are problems with intermediate-depth injection, one or more additional legs could be directionally drilled from the current well bore.

Raft River Summary There is no significant change in water quality or water quality trends in the project area from through Annual fluctuations in ground water elevation are consistent with those observed in the Geoscience Study () and EG&G ().
