|RAPID/Geothermal/Alaska/Exploration +||All wells drilled in support or in search of the recovery or production of geothermal resources must comply with 20 AAC 25.705-.740. The developer should submit a Permit to Drill (Form 10-401) before drilling or redrilling a well or re-entering an abandoned well (20 AAC 25.005). Upon application, the AOGCC will classify a well as:
*development, either oil or gas;
|RAPID/Geothermal/California/Exploration +||A “geothermal exploratory project” is a project as deﬁned in Section 21065 composed of not more than six wells and associated drilling and testing equipment, whose chief and original purpose is to evaluate the presence and characteristics of geothermal resources prior to commencement of a geothermal ﬁeld development project as deﬁned in Section 65928.5 of the Government Code. Wells included within a geothermal exploratory project must be located at least one-half mile from geothermal development wells which are capable of producing geothermal resources in commercial quantities.|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Colorado/Exploration +||Before any exploration drilling activity can take place on State Land Board-administered land, a Geothermal Exploration Lease is required from the [[Colorado State Board of Land Commissioners]]. In addition, well drilling associated with geothermal exploration and development requires permits from the Colorado Division of Water Resources.|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Federal/Exploration +||[[Bureau of Land Management - E-Forms | Notice of Intent to Conduct Geothermal Resource Exploration Operations (Form 3200-009)]] (Temperature Gradient Well); [[Bureau of Land Management - E-Forms | Geothermal Drilling Permit (Form 3260-002)]] (All other drilling activities)|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Hawaii/Exploration +||Drilling of shallow temperature test holes less than 500 feet in depth or less requires a Geothermal Exploration Permit from the [[Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources Engineering Division]]. A developer seeking to drill, modify, or modify the use of a well for exploration or development must receive a drilling or modification permit prior to conducting the operation.|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Idaho/Exploration +||Developers must submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) to the [[Idaho Department of Water Resources]] (DWR) prior to drilling small exploratory wells less than six inches in diameter and less than 1000 feet deep.
A well drilling permit is required for any drilling activity that will encounter groundwater and specifically for exploration wells that are drilled for the discovery and/or evaluation of geothermal resources either in an established geothermal field or in unexplored areas. "Exploratory well" is a well drilled for the discovery and/or evaluation of geothermal resources either in an established geothermal field or in unexplored areas. "Exploratory well" does not include holes six (6) inches in diameter or less if they are used for gathering geotechnical data such as, but not limited to, heat flow, earth temperature, temperature gradient and/or seismic measurements, provided said holes are not greater than one thousand (1000) feet in depth below land surface and provided the material medium is not intended to be encountered. Exploration wells and production wells are both covered under the Permit to Drill for Geothermal Resources.|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Montana/Exploration +||Currently, Montana does not have a well established process for obtaining a permit to drill for geothermal resources required for exploration drilling activities. Interested developers should contact the [[Montana Department of Natural Resources & Conservation | MDNRC]] for information and requirements.|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Nevada/Exploration +||If a developer plans on drilling a single well, the developer must submit an application for a permit to drill or operate an individual geothermal well to the [[Nevada Division of Minerals]] on a form provided by the Administrator. Except as otherwise provided in NAC 534A.196.
If a developer plans on drilling multiple exploratory wells in a defined project area, the developer must submit a Geothermal Project Area Permit application to the [[Nevada Division of Minerals]].
If a developer plans to make minor changes to an existing well, the developer must submit a Sundry Notice to the [[Nevada Division of Minerals]]|
|RAPID/Geothermal/New Mexico/Exploration +||Permit to Drill|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Oregon/Exploration +||No person shall engage in drilling a prospect well without first obtaining a permit issued under the authority of the State Department of Geology and Mineral Industries and without complying with the conditions of such permit.|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Texas/Exploration +||Regardless of who owns of the surface rights and mineral rights, a developer is required to obtain a drilling permit from the [[Railroad Commission of Texas]] (RRC) before conducting any exploration drilling.|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Utah/Exploration +||Developers must submit a Notice of Intent with the Division for review before drilling, redrilling, deepening, permanently altering the casing of, or abandoning a well.|
|RAPID/Geothermal/Washington/Exploration +||Drilling Permit|
