United Kingdom: Testing About to Begin at United Downs Deep Geothermal Power Project

Update from United Downs Deep Geothermal Power Project (UDDGP)

We have now finished constructing a water storage pond that will allow us to carry out further tests on our deep well UD-1. We need this facility to store water that we produce from the well so that it can be allowed to cool and analysed before either being re-injected or disposed of offsite.

We are in the process now of mobilising a ‘workover’ drilling rig to the site in late March to remove a temporary downhole packer from UD-1, carry out some more downhole ‘logging’ measurements, attempt to collect sidewall cores and carry out the production test.

The workover rig is much smaller than the one we used for drilling the wells; about half the mast height and less equipment on the ground, but it will still be worth seeing and we will hold a public drop-in session while it is here.
