MAJOR BREAKTHOUGH IN GEOTHERMAL ENERGY!

Unread postby Plantagenet » Sat 28 Nov 2020, 02:10:44

There's been a major breakthrough in Geothermal Energy. Tranditionally geothermal energy was exploited in very localized areas where heat flow was very high and the rocks were unusually hot......mostly near volcanoes and subsurface magma chambers, or along fault zones.

But now, in a major new development, a deep horizontal well in Saskatchewan was able to produce signifiant amounts of hot water from typical sedimentary rock buried deep in a typical sedimentary basin......with no volcanic heat source or fault zone involved.

The amazing thing about this new discovery is the huge huge potential for geothermal power development that this opens up. Rather then having to target small subsurface steam reservoirs near volcanoes or along faults, geothermal drillers can now produce electricity using geothermal energy from the hot water found in deep sedimentary rock formations in many new places......formations that typically extend laterally for tens and even hundreds of miles underground.

WOW!

WHEEEEE!

THIS IS GOING TO BE BIG!!!
