Production enhancement of geothermal wells


Higher-temperature wells are normally self-energized and produce without stimulation. Initial production of a well is usually allowed to discharge to a surge pit to allow for cleanup of the wellbore of debris from drilling operations. If a well is self-energized, it is also important to know whether the produced fluid remains single phase in the wellbore. Friction losses are much greater for two-phase flow, so increasing the casing diameter at the point where the fluid flashes to vapor will increase production. A well that does not discharge spontaneously will require stimulation.
