Toronto-based company Polaris Infrastructure Inc. has provided the following update with respect to the San Jacinto geothermal project drilling campaign.

Following the completion of temporary piping and steamfield infrastructure, new production well SJ 9-4 was successfully connected to the San Jacinto plant on the evening of August 24, 2016 and is contributing incremental power generation of approximately 10 MW. 

In light of temporary operational throughput constraints, we have not yet been able to open SJ 9-4 to 100% of its capacity. We anticipate further opening the well in a phased approach over the balance of 2016, and expect to have relieved throughput constraints following completion of a planned maintenance program in February of 2017.
