Author: Mukhtarov, A.Sh.; Nadirov, R.S; Mammadova (Asadova), A.V.; Mammadov, V.A
Abstract: The territory of Azerbaijan is rich in thermal waters. Sources of thermal water can be found in the Greater and Lesser Caucasus, on the Absheron Peninsula and Talysh. Also in the vast territory of the Kur basin and the Precaspian-Guba area numerous wells drilled for oil and gas discovered aquifers with thermal water. The highest initial temperature of thermal water 96°C was registered in Jarly-3 well. Currently temperature of water is 92°C and mineralization is 50 g/l at the well head. Flow rate of the well exceeds 20000 m3/day. According to estimates based on the set of parameters, currently the capacity of the well is approximately 70 MW if water is cooled down to 20°C. Another high-potential well is located in the Daridagh thermal area of Nakhchivan with the power potential about 10 MW.
