Basic Information
Author: LaVerne B. Cobb, LeRoy Radford, and Michael Glascock
Description:Publication on the Atlantic Coastal plain Geothermal Drilling Program and date for the five (5) test holes drilled in Virginia. Gruy Federal, Inc. of Houston, Texas, was selected by the Department of Energy (DOE), Division of Geothermal Energy, to plan, manage, and supervise the Atlantic Coastal Plain Geothermal Drilling Program (ACPGDP). The objectives of this program are: 1. To provide 50 or more heat flow measurement holes, approximately 1000 feet deep, in the sediments of the Atlantic Coastal Plain; 2. To provide these test holes over an area large enough to obtain a statistically comprehensive understanding of the heat flow characteristics of the Atlantic Coastal Plain; and 3. To locate the optimum site for a geothermal resource exploratory well, drilled to basement (approximately 6000 feet deep), after analysis of the heat flow data.
