Zsófia Busa Posted August 30, 2018 Share Posted August 30, 2018 I have a question about the databases, which uses the Pitzer equation. I would like to model a geothermal reinjection. The reservoir rock is sandstone, which interacts with fluid flowing. The fluid has high total dissolved solids, and the temperature in the bottom of the well is approximately 95 °C. The components of the sandstone are mainly quartz and feldspar, and a little amount of clay minerals. I should use a database, which is based on the Pitzer equation, and I took a look the thermo_hmw and the thermo_phrqpitz databases, but these databases does not contain the minerals, that I need (quartz, feldspars, clay minerals). I found the thermo_ymp database, which contains the minerals and basis species, that I need for the modeling. My question is that is it possible to use this database to examine the precipitation and dissolution during the geothermal reinjection? Is this database use the Pitzer equation? Thank you for your answer! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
