Geothermal Energy at Long Beach Naval Shipyard and Naval Station and At Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station, California

Basic Information
Author: Chapman, Rodger H. and Higgins, Chris T.
Description:The purpose of this project was to determine and evaluate sources of geothermal energy at two military bases in southern California, the Long Beach Naval Shipyard and Naval Station and the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station.One part of the project focused on the natural geothermal characteristics beneath the naval bases. Another part focused on the geothermal energy produced by oilfield operations on and adjacent to each base. Results of the study are presented here for the U.S. Department of the Navy to use in its program to reduce its reliance on petroleum by the development of different sources of energy. The study was accomplished under a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Department of Energy's San Francisco Operations Office and the Department of the Navy's Naval Weapons Center, China Lake, California, for joint research and development of geothermal energy at military installations.
