Demonstration Receives Sundry Notice Approval from BLM
AltaRock Energy is pleased to announce that the Newberry EGS Demonstration has obtained a Sundry Notice approval from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). This notice allows us to begin using stimulation to create geothermal reservoirs, which is part of Phase II of the demonstration. The stimulation is scheduled to begin in October.
“Creating multiple geothermal reservoirs from a single injection well multiplies the amount of energy that can be extracted from each production well,” said Susan Petty, president and founder of AltaRock.
“Not only do multiple reservoirs extend the life of the well and increase the energy recovery from each well, they significantly improve the economics of EGS power generation. This could allow geothermal to translate into a comprehensive source of renewable energy for the future,” Petty added.
AltaRock staff will be at two local public meetings to explain the project and answer questions.
Here’s where you can find us:
- September 26, 6:00 PM – Public meeting at the SHARC Recreation Center in Sunriver, OR
- October 6 and 7 –We will have a booth at the Bend Fall Festival
