Updated Overpressures and Permeability Values for PNNL's StimuFrac Fluid
A corrigendum was submitted to the journal of Geothermics on our article "Environmentally friendly, rheoreversible, hydraulic-fracturing fluids for enhanced geothermal systems" Shao et al Geothermics 58 (2015) 22-31.
In the original article some permeability values were underestimated, in particular, for rock samples fractured by the stimuli-responsive fracking fluid (PAA-CO2). In addition, effective pressures were determined to be lower for three control experiments (deionized water-carbon dioxide, DIW-CO2). Therefore, we revised values of permeability and effective pressure as well as performed additional lab-scale stimulation experiments under identical conditions to further verify/update the deductions presented in the discussion section. This is the reason for the additional data introduced in the below Table 1 (grey color).
The authors regret the following inadvertent errors and corresponding modifications. These modifications do not change the scientific conclusions of the article.
