Conference Paper: The Iceland Deep Drilling Project- A Search For Supercritical Fluid

Abstract
The Iceland Deep Drilling Project (IDDP) is an investigation of the technical and economic aspects of producing s u ~ ~ r i t i c ~ fluids (from depths of 4-5 km and at temperatures of 400-600°C) for use in power generation and other energy intensive processes, such as mineral recovery. The IDDP faces difficult technical challenges to drill, complete, sample and m ~wells tunder ~hot, and potentially acid, conditions. However the IDDP also presents opportunities to investigate very high-temperature hydrothermal regimes that have rarely been available for direct study. The IDDP is therefore seeking international participation by scientists and engineers to formulate and implement strategies to achieve its engineering and scientific goals.
