Sierra Geothermal completes well at Reese River

A 1,200 meter (~3900 foot) well was completed Friday on the Reese River, Nevada project. Now comes flow testing to determine the quality and quantity of the resource. If Sierra’s calculations are correct, this project should be around 30MW (not this well, wells can produce between 1 and 15MW and the only place I’ve heard of 15MW is Iceland – 2 to 5MW is common.) We’ll see what Sierra finds and reports…

    Sorry, I don’t have the specific location. You’re probably best served asking a Sierra Geothermal employee.
