Abstract

An advanced geoelectrical technique for imaging potential fractures has been developed by Engineering Geophysics Laboratory in Kyushu University. The method, Fluid Flow Tomography (FFT), has been applied to monitor fluid flow behaviors in a reservoir during water injection and steam production operations in geothermal areas. Distribution and extension of major fractures can be evaluated by 3-D inversion of induced self potential (SP) anomalies with a function of time and resistivity structures can be determined by 3-D inversion of the charged potential data in a surveyed area. It is concluded that fluid flow behaviors in a reservoir could be continuously traced and visualized as a function of time by the FFT method.
