Preliminary Test Results and Geology of the DOE/Superior Hulin Number 1 Geopressured-Geothermal Well, Vermilion Parish, Louisiana

The DOE/Superior Hulin #1 well is the most recent of the current three geopressured-geothermal prospects being tested by the Department of Energy (DOE) under its geopressured-geothermal program initiated in 1975. The other prospects under evaluation are Gladys McCall #1 (Cameron Parish, Louisiana) and Pleasant Bayou #2 (Brazoria County, Texas). The main objective of this research program is to evaluate the commercial viability of energy production from high temperature (275+F), geopressured, natural-gas-saturated brine sandstone aquifers occurring in the Gulf Coast area.
