Conference Paper: Development Of Geothermal Exploration Techniques Between 1980 And 2002 In Nedo, Japan

Abstract
A program on development of geothermal exploration techniques by NEDO is going to be completed at the end of fiscal year 2002 as other programs on geothermal technology development have finished. The program, 'Confirmation Study of the Effectiveness of Prospecting Techniques for Deep Geothermal Resources', was launched in 1980 and consisted of five projects, 'Sengan-Kurikoma Regional Survey (FY 1980 to FY 1988)', 'Development of a High-Precision Magnetotelluric (MT) Method Exploration Technique (FY1980 to FY1988)', 'Development of Exploration Methods for Fracture-type Geothermal Reservoirs (FY 1988 to FY 1996)', 'Deep-seated Geothermal Resources Survey (FY1992 to FY2000)' and 'Development of Technology for Reservoir Mass and Heat Flow Characterization (FY 1997 to FY2002)'. These projects have responded to the needs of geothermal developers in advance and have been reflected by the stages of geothermal energy development, in addition to contributing to geothermal development in Japan. The last project in NEDO will be completed next March, with AIST and private companies continuing research and development.
