Title: Assessment of Reservoir Potential of Bali Geothermal Field, Indonesia: ABSTRACT

Author(s): B. Soetantri, Prijanto

Article Type: Meeting abstract


A large volume, two-phase reservoir, with a capacity of about 19 mi3 (80 km3), underlies the Donau (lake) Bratan Caldera on the island of Bali. Recent resistivity modeling indicates that the reservoir is at a depth of about 3,300 ft (1,000 m). If the reservoir rock porosity is assumed to be 8%, the saturation to be 32.5% and the temperature to be 245°C, the total energy stored in the reservoir is about 2 × 1012 MJ. This means that a promising geothermal field awaits development on Bali.
