Development Wells At Fallon Naval Air Station Area (Sabin, Et Al., 2010)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Fallon Naval Air Station Area|
|Exploration Technique||Development Wells|
As was mentioned previously, the Navy signed a development contract with Ormat in 2005 to produce power from a potential resource on the SE corner of the main side portion of NAS Fallon. Additionally the GPO began additional exploration activities on the Bombing Range 16 in collaboration with the Great Basin Center for Geothermal Energy. The introduction of $9.1M of Recovery Act funds in early 2009 led to a broadening as well as an acceleration of exploration activities at Fallon. Much of this work is just now getting underway but interim remote sensing and drilling results may be available by October, 2010.
