Exploration Activity: Stepout-Deepening Wells At Lightning Dock Area (Warpinski, Et Al., 2004)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Lightning Dock Area
Exploration Technique Well Deepening
Activity Date

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Notes
The objective of this project is to access, test, and confirm the deeper resource by deepening an existing shallow well at the site to penetrate the deep reservoir. AmeriCulture deepened the existing well (EGS-1) in 2003 by coring from 277 m to 640 m, essentially through the entire Tertiary volcanic interval. The maximum recorded temperature after stabilization was about 115degrees C. Evaluation of the well productivity will occur in 2004.
