Conference Paper: Roosevelt Hot Springs Unit Development: A Case History

Abstract
The Roosevelt Hot Springs Unit (RHSU) was unitized in April 1976 and was the first geothermal unit approved by the United States Department of Interior. At the time, Phillips Petroleum Company was named unit operator. In the fall of 1980, after an extensive reservoir testing and marketing effort, a contract with the Utah Power and Light (UP&L) was executed for the sale of stream to produce 120 MW of electricity. Design of the first 20 MW geothermal power plant begain immediately and construction ensued in August of 1982. The startup of the 20MW geothermal power plant occurred in April 1984. The following RHSU case history presentation includes a geological description, exploration review, testing and data collection, resource and reservoir evaluation, and the 20 MW geothermal power plant.
