GRED ProgramGeothermal Resource Exploration & Definition

  • Goals and Objectives

    • Develop collaborative efforts to support the exploration for and definition of new geothermal resources

      • Mitigate The Initial Risk Of Confirming A Reservoir

      • Encourage Geographic Diversity

    • Effect an increase in the electrical power generated from geothermal energy

      • Increase Overall Generating Capacity (40,000 MWe)

    • Promote additional geothermal development to aid development of technology

      • Decrease the levelized cost of geothermal energy

GRED ProgramGeothermal Resource Exploration & Definition

  • Program Approach

    • Original Geographic-Diversity Focus

      • GRED (2000)

        • New States, New Fields, Extensions

        • Now Closing Out

      • GRED II (2002)

        • New States, New Fields

        • Generally In Phase II Work

    • New Risk Focus

      • GRED III (2004)

        • New Solicitation

    • DOE Cooperative Agreements

      • Preferred Contractual Instrument

      • Flexibility

  • Scope of Work for Individual Projects

    • Phase I

      • Exploration Work To Site A Test Well

        • Geologic Studies, Geophysics, Geothermometry

    • Phase II

      • Slim-Hole Drilling

        • Logging, Core, Short Tests

    • Phase III

      • Well Testing & Reservoir Assessment


Gred science engineering areas l.jpg
GRED Science & Engineering Areas

Geophysics

Drilling

Phase I :

Exploration geophysics to determine optimum location for a test well

Phase II :

Drilling of a test well to

access the reservoir and evaluate geologic features

Fourmile Hill Temperature Logs (454° Max)

Steamboat Hills Velocity Model

Testing

Assessment

Phase III :

Testing of the well for

reservoir qualities, flow capacity & thermal characteristics

Potential of the new resource to provide geothermal power

GRED III Program

  • New FOA

    • Release In Late March, 2004 (DOE/GO)

    • Initial Awards In Late FY04

    • Risk-Based Approach

      • High Risk (Unpenetrated Thermal Anomaly)

        • 80% Maximum DOE Cost Share

      • Medium Risk (No Production In Anomaly)

        • 50% Maximum DOE Cost Share

      • Low Risk (In Vicinity Of Producing Reservoir)

        • Requires Advanced Technology

        • 20% Maximum DOE Cost Share

    • Premium On Advanced Technology

      • Additional Cost Share For Appropriate R&D Usage

  • Conclusions

    • Successful GRED I Program Is Nearly Complete

      • 7 Projects Funded: Close-Out Stage In Most Projects

      • 4 Projects Should Progress Through Phase III

      • Significant Potential In These Sites

    • GRED II Ongoing

      • 8 Projects Funded

      • 4 Projects In Phase II; 1 Project In Phase III

    • New GRED III

    • Overall Program Is:

      • Successfully Encouraging New Exploration & Reservoir Confirmation

      • Contributing To Overall Geothermal Program Goals & Objectives

      • Connecting Projects With New Technology
