Thermal Gradient Holes At Lightning Dock Area (Warpinski, Et Al., 2004)
Exploration Activity: Thermal Gradient Holes At Lightning Dock Area (Warpinski, Et Al., 2004)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Lightning Dock Area|
|Exploration Technique||Thermal Gradient Holes|
The awardee conducted seismic, gravity, resistivity, and airborne magnetic surveys, drilled temperature-gradient wells, and selected a location for a test well (52-7). The test well was drilled to a total depth of 770 m during 2003. Maximum temperatures approached 140degrees C and a short flow test suggested that a production well could be drilled to 600 m and produce economic volumes of 130-140degrees C fluid. A final assessment of the resource is currently being performed.
