- Extended-term tests of Gulf Coast geopressured brine wells have provided some surprising information. These wells produce small, but ever increasing, quantities of aromatic condensate. The wells suffer both scale and corrosion problems that appear to be amenable to simple control measures. Long-term production will probably not require exotic metallurgy. Fluid disposal at high flow rates is a well-understood process. Reservoir rock mechanics are indicating much larger fluid recoveries than previously thought due to a high degree of plastic behavior. Future investigations should center upon multi-year tests to develop functional production techniques.
