This dataset contains chemical and isotopic data from 39 produced water samples collected from sealed separators containing water from horizontal hydrocarbon wells in the lower Eagle Ford Group. The samples were collected from Lavaca and Gonzales counties, Texas in December, 2015. All wells had been in production for longer than 6 months and had produced more than 10,000 barrels (~160,000 liters) of water.

The dataset consists of site identification, location, temperature and CO2 flux from diffuse emission measurement at the Tiptop fire. A total of 40 CO2 flux measurements were made at 27 locations, including five points (seven measurements) outside of the active coal fire area.

This data matrix contains the codebook vectors for a 82 x 50 neuron Emergent Self-Organizing Map which describes the multivariate topology of reservoir temperature and geochemical data for 190 samples of produced and geothermal waters from across the United States. Variables included are coordinates derived from reservoir temperature and concentration of Sc, Nd, Pr, Tb, Lu, Gd, Tm, Ce, Yb, Sm, Ho, Er, Eu, Dy, F, alkalinity as bicarbonate, Si, B, Br, Li, Ba, Sr, sulfate, H (derived from pH), K, Mg, Ca, Cl, and Na converted to units of proportion. The concentration data were converted to isometric log-ratio coordinates (following Hron et al., 2010), where the first ratio is Sc serving as the denominator to the geometric...

This data release consists of three products relating to a 82 x 50 neuron Emergent Self-Organizing Map (ESOM), which describes the multivariate topology of reservoir temperature and geochemical data for 190 samples of produced and geothermal waters from across the United States. Variables included in the ESOM are coordinates derived from reservoir temperature and concentration of Sc, Nd, Pr, Tb, Lu, Gd, Tm, Ce, Yb, Sm, Ho, Er, Eu, Dy, F, alkalinity as bicarbonate, Si, B, Br, Li, Ba, Sr, sulfate, H (derived from pH), K, Mg, Ca, Cl, and Na converted to units of proportion. The concentration data were converted to isometric log-ratio coordinates (following Hron et al., 2010), where the first ratio is Sc serving as...

During hydrocarbon production, water is typically co-produced from the geologic formations producing oil and gas. Understanding the composition of these produced waters is important to help investigate the regional hydrogeology, the source of the water, the efficacy of water treatment and disposal plans, potential economic benefits of mineral commodities in the fluids, and the safety of potential sources of drinking or agricultural water. The U.S. Geological Survey National Produced Waters Geochemical Database v2.3 is an updated compilation of geochemical and related information for water from oil and gas wells in the United States. It includes identification and location information, well descriptions, dates, rock...
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
