OUR DEEP GEOTHERMAL SERVICES
Most of our clients are at an early stage in their project planning and may not yet know whether there is a viable geothermal option to meet their heat or power demands. We offer a staged feasibility and development approach which aims to minimise the financial exposure as the risks and uncertainties are reduced by further and more detailed work.
An initial consideration of the geological environment and the geothermal potential of the study area to determine whether any kind of geothermal project is likely to be technically possible.
A more detailed study, taking into account additional specific geothermal and geological information and possibly including field work. It would also include an assessment of potential specific development sites, logistics, planning and environmental issues.
Planning, drilling and testing of one or more exploration boreholes to confirm geological conditions, the subsurface temperature profile, and measure rock permeability.
Development of project design and programme, used to secure the necessary funding for development. This would include projections of performance and energy outputs, drilling costs, surface plant construction and O&M costs.
Permitting and permissions, including Planning permission, Environment Agency licence, environmental impact assessment and any other specific permissions relating to the site.
Drilling and testing of the development wells
