The results of thermodynamic and hydraulic modeling technological variants of power and heat production by using in the geothermal circulation circuit using thermal, mechanical and chemical energy of the fluid of geothermal deposits with abnormally high formation pressure (AHFP) are presented. Geothermal deposits of this type are found at depths up to 4000 m and are characterized by a positive temperature anomaly, which determines the prospects for their use in geothermal energy. However, the use of AHFP deposits is complicated by the high fluid pressure on the surface, which leads to increased metal content of ground equipment and potential danger to the environment due to possible depressurization. The binary GeoTPP on the Rankine organic cycle under full pressure of geothermal fluid is accepted as the basic model. In addition, in order to reduce metal consumption and prevent the consequences of emergencies, GeoTPP technological schemes with preliminary pressure reduction using a Pelton turbine with separation and use of dissolved methane for electricity and heat production in a gas-piston cogeneration unit are considered. Comparative calculations of technological schemes were performed according to the AHFP geothermal field Mostytska, Ukraine with temperature up to 140oC, formation pressure over 500 bar and dissolved methane content 1 m3 / m3 at a depth of 3600 m. The results of mathematical modeling of hydrodynamics and heat transfer of fluid motion in wells, processes of pressure reduction in Pelton turbine, removal and use of dissolved methane in cogeneration unit, thermodynamic calculation of geothermal steam turbine cycle are presented, which allowed comparing the basic and alternative versions of technological schemes for the level of electric and thermal power. The obtained data are intended for further use in the technical and economic comparison of the considered technological schemes. Ref. 10, table 6,  fig.4.
