Analysing production chemistry is one of the most useful methods to understand the changes taking place in the geothermal reservoir due to production.  Changes in the produced brine and steam can detect and quantify dilution by groundwaters, reinjection returns, changes in the reservoir temperature,  and many others.

The interpretation of production chemistry is one of the most powerful tools to manage the performance and longevity of the reservoir.  It provides a direct link to the processes taking place in the reservoir due to production.
