Journal Article: The Status Of High Enthalpy Geothermal Exploration In The Developing Countries

Abstract
High enthalpy geothermal resources suitable for electric power production occur in more than 50 developing countries, although by the end of 1983 only nine had installed production capacity in 14 fields totalling just over 1200 MW. One of the major obstacles to accelerated geothermal development in the developing countries is the high-risk exploratory drilling phase, where the number of countries seeking finance outnumbers those actually drilling by a factor of 3 to 1. The United Nations Revolving Fund for Natural Resources Exploration is seeking to alleviate this situation. An overview of geothermal activities in the developing countries is presented.
