Pressure distribution between the wells and deformation. a The streamlines go from the injection well to the extraction well and the volumetric strain follows the thermal field after 25 years of injection. The cyan line indicates the liquid front, which is close to the fault. b The pressure distribution is asymmetrical in the long-term and the mid-point moves with time towards the injection well because of the higher viscosity of the liquid water around the injection well due to thermal quenching
