Abstract
With no moving parts other than a syringe pump, this tool will allow for the reliable measurement of flow rate as a function of depth within a geothermal wellbore and thus provide for improved reservoir management. By improving wellbore flow measurements, predictions of well performance will dramatically improve and EGS energy production will become more reliable and more cost effective.
