Independent Induced Seismicity and Seismic Hazards Risk Analysis is Complete

December 3, 2010

AltaRock Energy is pleased to announce the completion of an independent consultant’s Induced Seismicity and Seismic Hazards Risk Analysis of our Newberry EGS Demonstration. The analysis was completed by URS Corporation, a leading provider of engineering, construction and technical services for public agencies and private sector companies around the world.

URS concludes that “the results of the probabilistic seismic hazard analysis indicate that there is no difference in hazard at La Pine, Sunriver, and the Project site (NGC 55-29) between the baseline conditions (which incorporates the hazard from both natural tectonic and volcanic seismicity) and the EGS induced seismicity. As a result, potential EGS induced seismicity poses no seismic risk to the residents in the neighboring communities.”
