Exploration Activity: Thermal Gradient Holes At Chena Geothermal Area (EERE, 2010)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Chena Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Thermal Gradient Holes
Activity Date 2009 - 2010

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Exploration program undertaken during Phase II of the DOE-funded Geothermal Resource Evaluation and Definitions Program Phase I (GRED III Phase II)
 
Notes
A deeper well, TG-12, was drilled to approximately 2700 ft depth but the hypothesized temperature of 200°F was not encountered. Assisted in improving the understanding of the geothermal system as a whole.
