Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis: Teranov Starts Geothermal Energy Feasibility Study

French company begins geothermal exploration in St. Kitts (

Teranov, a French engineering and services company based in Guadeloupe, has started geothermal exploration in St. Kitts. Five geoscientists are on the island conducting feasibility studies in geophysics, geology and geochemistry.
