Progress and Future Plans at the Desert Peak East EGS Project

Basic Information
Author: Morris, C. and Robertson-Tait, A.
Description:An industry-DOE cost-shared project is underway to evaluate the technical feasibility of developing an EGS power generation project on the eastern side of the Desert Peak geothermal field. Analysis of existing geological and geophysical data is complemented by new geologic mapping and gravity work in the Hot Springs Mountains undertaken by researchers with funding from the Great Basin Center for Geothermal Energy at the University of Nevada Reno (UNR). An existing well (DP 23-1) is the focus of much of the Phase I investigation, including re-interpretation of lithology, acquisition and analysis of a well bore imaging log, and conducting and analyzing a step-rate injection test. As of June 2003, the project is about half complete; results are summarized below. Phase I work remaining to modeling, numerical modeling and the development of a be completed includes conceptual detailed plan to guide upcoming field activities.
