Variability of deep carbon sources in Mexican geothermal fluids
A sampling campaign for collecting geothermal fluids was carried out between 2014 and 2016 at the Cerro Prieto (CP), Los Azufres (LA), Los Humeros (LH), and Las Tres Vírgenes (LTV) geothermal fields (GFs) in Mexico. The ...
Fluid circulation and reservoir conditions of the Los Humeros Geothermal Field (LHGF), Mexico, as revealed by a noble gas survey
Los Humeros Geothermal Field (LHGF) is one of four geothermal fields currently operating in Mexico, in exploitation since 1990. Located in a caldera complex filled with very low-permeability rhyolitic ignimbrites that are ...
A noble gas and 87Sr/86Sr study in fluids of the Los Azufres geothermal field, Mexico – Assessing impact of exploitation and constraining heat sources
Thirty geothermal wells and two hot springs were sampled for volume fraction and isotopic measurements of noble gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe) and strontium in the Los Azufres Geothermal Field (LAGF), Mexico. The aim of this ...
Cerro Prieto Geothermal Field (Baja California, Mexico) – A fossil system? Insights from a noble gas study
Results of a survey of noble gases, water stable isotopes (δD and δ18O), and chlorine (Cl) and bromine (Br) contents measured in geothermal waters from the high-enthalpy, liquid-dominated Cerro Prieto Geothermal Field ...
The Los Humeros (Mexico) geothermal field model deduced from new geophysical and geological data
The Los Humeros volcanic complex, a 21 × 15 km diameter caldera edifice nesting volcanic domes and a complex faulting structure, is located at the eastern edge of the Trans-mexican volcanic belt (TMVB). It is a young edifice ...
Improved method for effective rock microporosity estimation using X-ray microtomography
Petrophysical analysis using X-ray microtomography provides key textural and compositional information, useful to investigate porous media characteristics of hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoirs. Several approaches, used ...
