Direct Confirmation of Commercial Geothermal Resources in Colorado Geothermal Project
Last modified on July 22, 2011.
|Project Title||Direct Confirmation of Commercial Geothermal Resources in Colorado|
|Project Type / Topic 1||Recovery Act: Geothermal Technologies Program|
|Project Type / Topic 2||Validation of Innovative Exploration Technologies|
|Project Description|| The program is phased in three segments:
-Phase 1: Acquisition, Processing and Analysis of Remote Sensing Data -Phase 2: Conduct on site Temperature Surveys and Map results -Phase 3: Drill and Test Geothermal Resource -minimum of Two Wells
The direct benefits of a successful Program will be application of new processing of existing of Remote Sensing Data as a means to identify other commercial geothermal resouces throughout the United States.
|Objectives||Flint Geothermal LLC ("Flint") will undertake a cost effective three (3) Phased Program to locate and confirm up to Five (5) commercial Geothermal resources in Colorado. The heat resources to be identified will be those able to support a minimum electrical generation capacity of 10 Megawatts by location.|
