Mahzari, Pedram; Stanton-Yonge, Ashley; Sanchez-Roa, Catalina; Saldi, Giuseppe; Mitchell, Thomas; Oelkers, Eric H. et al. (2021): Characterizing fluid flow paths in the Hellisheidi geothermal field using detailed fault mapping and stress-dependent permeability. In Geothermics 94 (8), p. 102127. DOI: 10.1016/j.geothermics.2021.102127.

„The Husmuli zone of the SW-Iceland Hellisheidi geothermal field is currently being used for re-injection of geothermal fluids and geothermal CO2 for its permanent storage in the form of carbonate minerals. A fully coupled hydro-thermo-mechanical numerical model was employed to investigate the coupled impacts of these complex processes on the calibration of fluid flow paths, which can have significant implications for the long-term performance of this subsurface reservoir.“
