A 3D-3C Reflection Seismic Survey and Data Integration to Identify the Seismic Response of Fractures and Permeable Zones Over a Known Geothermal Resource at Soda Lake, Churchill Co., NV Geothermal Project +Churchill County, NV
Alum Innovative Exploration Project Geothermal Project +Alum geothermal project is located in Nevada ~150 miles SE of Reno. It consists of federal geothermal leases that are 100% owned by SGP.
Application of 2D VSP Imaging Technology to the Targeting of Exploration and Production Wells in a Basin and Range Geothermal System Humboldt House-Rye Patch Geothermal Area Geothermal Project +Humboldt House-Rye Patch (HH-RP) geothermal resource area
Application of a New Structural Model and Exploration Technologies to Define a Blind Geothermal System: A Viable Alternative to Grid-Drilling for Geothermal Exploration: McCoy, Churchill County, NV Geothermal Project +McCoy geothermal area
Away from the Range Front: Intra-Basin Geothermal Exploration Geothermal Project +Gabbs Valley is a blind prospect in an actively-faulted sedimentary basin with a very large geothermal heat anomaly in rural Nye and Mineral Counties.


Development and Validation of an Advanced Stimulation Prediction Model for Enhanced Geothermal Systems Geothermal Project +[via their website] Mines is located in Golden, Colo., only 15 miles west of Denver’s downtown business district. Golden, a thriving community of 17,000, offers outdoor adventure with small town atmosphere and convenient access to big city attractions.The school has some big-name neighbors in Golden, including the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, a frequent research partner, and Coors Brewing Company.
Development of Exploration Methods for Engineered Geothermal Systems through Integrated Geophysical, Geologic and Geochemical Interpretation. Geothermal Project +The study site in Dixie Valley, Nevada, was chosen because this Basin and Range (BR) geothermal resource is highly characterized, including extensive temperature data at depth, which will allow us to test and calibrate the methodology developed. The site is considered an excellent analog for AltaRock’s extensive lease holdings in the northwest BR. Preliminary investigation also indicates it should be possible to cover an area at Dixie Valley that will include the three thermal regimes of interest: a hot dry region, a hot wet region, and a cold zone.


Finding Large Aperture Fractures in Geothermal Resource Areas Using a Three-Component Long-Offset Surface Seismic Survey Geothermal Project +The San Emidio geothermal resource area, which is under lease to USG contains four exploration and production wells that have encountered and currently produce from LAF’s in the southern half of the resource area. USG also has a lease block containing the northern extension of the San Emidio geothermal resource located 2 miles to the north of the operating wellfield. The northern lease block is thermally active but unexplored by deep drilling. This block constitutes the exploration test area for the methodology developed in the southern block containing the known LAF’s. Success of this program in the southern SE lease block will result in expansion of the current field capacity from 4 MW to 16MW. Success in the northern lease block will result in development of a separate geothermal power generation project.


High Precision Geophysics & Detailed Structural Exploration & Slim Well Drilling Geothermal Project +Crump Geyser, Oregon is located in Warner Valley, Lake County, Oregon and is made up of private land covering 7,205 acres. At Crump, the hot springs and the resistivity anomaly extend for about 1 mile consequently the resource size is conservatively expected to be about 10 MW and an estimate by GeothermEx suggesting that the resource might be up to 40 MW.


Innovative Exploration Techniques for Geothermal Assessment at Jemez Pueblo, New Mexico Geothermal Project +In 1991 a well was drilled on the Jemez Reservation to explore Indian Springs hot springs. This well produced water of 136°F from a depth of 240 feet with a flow of 150 gallons per minute. The source of this geothermal water is unknown but is thought to be the geothermal outflow plume from the Valles caldera, a well known volcanic feature that hosts several hot springs and is near the site of the Fenton Hill Hot Dry Rock project.


Large Scale Geothermal Exchange System for Residential, Office and Retail Development Geothermal Project +RiverHeath is a 15 acre mixed-use brownfield redevelopment located along the shores of the Fox River in Appleton, Wisconsin. This project is the culmination of a 10 year effort to clean up a former paper manufacturing operation.


Merging High Resolution Geophysical and Geochemical Surveys to Reduce Exploration Risk at Glass Buttes, Oregon Geothermal Project +Glass Buttes is one of the largest and most prospective projects in Ormat’s portfolio, with more than 60 km2 (23 mi2) of measured temperature gradients over 165° C/km (10° F/100ft). In the 1970s Phillips Petroleum shallow- and intermediate-depth drilling highlighted two large thermal anomalies that deserve renewed exploration.


New River Geothermal Research Project, Imperial Valley, California Geothermal Project +The shallow New River thermal system, in Imperial County, California, is an area over 6 square miles with up to 14 oF/100’ shallow temperature gradient and a deep thermal system of hypersaline brines with temperatures near 570 oF at depths defined by deep test wells below 10,000’ in four deep tests.
New York Canyon Stimulation Geothermal Project +The principal advantages of the NYC site are: - High temperature gradients at shallow depths; - Reported steam production from a 140-foot development drill hole at the New York kaolin deposit in 1963; - A location on the opposite side of the Stillwater Range suggesting a possible common heat source underneath the Stillwater Range; and - A large lease position which could complement the EGS stimulation effort with logistical support
Newberry Volcano EGS Demonstration Geothermal Project +The Newberry project site exemplifies unparalleled EGS potential in the United States, with a large, high-temperature, conductive thermal anomaly yielding wells with permeability orders of magnitude less than conventional hydrothermal wells.


Silver Peak Innovative Exploration Project Geothermal Project +Silver Peak is an excellent locality for this project. An independent assessment of the geothermal resource at Silver Peak concluded that commercial temperatures are likely at economically drillable depths and that the Silver Peak resource could support a power plant with a capacity of 15 MW at the 90% probability level and 41 MW at the 50% probability level.


The Snake River Geothermal Drilling Project – Innovative Approaches to Geothermal Exploration Geothermal Project +The Snake River volcanic province overlies a thermal anomaly that extends deep into the mantle and represents one of the highest heat flow provinces in North America, and an area with the highest calculated geothermal gradients. This makes the SRP one of the most under-developed and potentially highest producing geothermal districts in the United States. Elevated heat flow is typically highest along the margins of the topographic Snake River Plain and lowest along the axis of the plain, where thermal gradients are suppressed by the Snake River aquifer. Beneath this aquifer, however, thermal gradients rise again and may tap even higher heat flows associated with the intrusion of mafic magmas into the mid-crustal sill complex.


Validation of Innovative Exploration Technologies for Newberry Volcano Geothermal Project +Exploration efforts in 2008 using conventional methods culminated in two deep wells. Although Newberry encountered very high temperature in the wells, no geothermal fluid accompanied the heat. Due to the deep water table outside the caldera, where the flank pluton has been identified, there are no hot springs or fumaroles to provide surface identifiers for deeper geothermal systems.
