Proposed Action

ENEL has submitted a Geothermal Utilization Plan to BLM that proposes to:

  • Construct a 20 MW net (approximate) Organic Rankine, binary cycle power plant on private land.
  • Install a four-acre (approximate) electrical substation to connect to an existing 138-kV power transmission line.
  • Install 1600 feet of 138-kV power line from the power plant to the substation Utilize nine existing wells and up to twelve additional contingency wells for production and injection of geothermal fluids.
  • Construct a well field motor control center (MCC).
  • Construct up to 6.6 miles of 8 to 36-inch surface conveyance pipelines to connect individual well heads to the geothermal plant on private land.
  • Decommission five existing steam wells that supported the previous power plant as required and rehabilitate the well pads and use one existing steam well as a monitoring well


The proposed power plant would be an air cooled facility thus the 20 MW output is a yearly average output. Use of ten or more wells may be necessary at any given time for operation of the power plant (See Figure 2.1, Project Map). If ten wells are used, six would be operated as production wells and four as injection wells. To date, six production and three injection wells have been drilled in the project area.
