This project is being conducted to develop exploration methodology for EGS development. Dixie Valley is being used as a calibration site for the EGS exploration program and multiple studies are being conducted to develop a baseline geothermal system conceptual model. The project is being funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, T=the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and AltaRock Energy Inc.
A review and assessment of existing public and private data was done for the EGS exploration program to help develop methodology for EGS exploration. The literature review was an important part of this project because Dixie Valley is being used as a calibration test site for EGS Exploration techniques. The private data was made available by Terra-Gen Power, LLC. Calibration of exploration techniques will be based on the cross-correlation of known results from past studies and well data. The area for this project is about 50 X 50 km and is centered around the Dixie Valley Power Plant.
