Canada: Abandoned Oil Well to be Used for Geothermal Energy

Geothermal well repurposing project moving ahead (Devon Dispatch)

A project being undertaken by Alberta Geothermal to repurpose suspended oil wells, instead using them to generate geothermal energy. The success of the project could account for 20 per cent of the province's GHG reduction commitments under the Paris Accord.

Alberta Geothermal has already met with Devon town council to discuss setting up their operations in Devon and the surrounding area.

Since Alberta Geothermal has already conducted preliminary research and testing, the following meeting with the premier's office will be held to iron out details, secure necessary licensing and figure out the project's next steps.
