Program

   

2.) Workshops

 
The goal of this workshop is to demonstrate how a geothermal resource model is first established and how it evolves with the addition of new data during the resource development. From a simple conceptual model resulting from the surface exploration studies to the complex reservoir models used to predict the behavior of the resource for several decades. Cost includes lunch on both days and a workshop reception on Friday evening.

Join us for a 2-day workshop focusing on commercial development strategies for well field, resource production facilities, power production facilities, and infrastructure. Participants will develop economic and investment decision processes and a computer model using capital cost estimates, operating and maintenance costs, and revenue from power sales to drive the calculations of internal rate of return, net present value, and payback period. A case study for a successful project will be presented using a USTDA-funded feasibility study along with other real-world experiences shared by participants and instructors. Cost includes lunch on both days and a workshop reception on Friday evening.

3.) Field Trips

 
Join us for a field trip to one of the best-studied Quaternary calderas in the world. The tour route follows the Walker Lane on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada passing the Steamboat Springs geothermal field and thermal areas at Bridgeport and Fales Hot Springs. Included in the cost of the fieldtrip is transportation, breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, two nights lodging at the Mammoth Mountain Inn (double occupancy) and all the eastern Sierra beauty you can stand!

The tour will highlight the unique geology associated with the Steamboat surface manifestations and reservoir as well the Steamboat geothermal power plant complex. This will include the state-of-the-art Galena III recuperated integrated two-level unit and Steamboat Hills single flash unit. Knowledgeable field trip guides will provide expert commentary during the trip. Cost only includes transportation. Please make sure to have breakfast before you check in for the field trip.

This trip will visit southern Gabbs Valley in western Nevada, where a blind geothermal system was recently discovered through application of the play fairway analysis. The geothermal play fairway concept involves integration of multiple parameters indicative of geothermal activity as a means of identifying promising areas for new development. On this trip, we will review the play fairway methodology applied to Nevada, discuss a new geothermal potential map for the region, and assess the geologic, geophysical, and geochemical evidence for a blind geothermal system in southern Gabbs Valley, including positive results from recently completed temperature-gradient drilling. Cost includes transportation, continental breakfast, lunch and dinner.
