Geothermal Drilling — From the First Exploration Hole Through Complete Field Development

At GeothermEx, we have a wide range of experience in designing and managing geothermal drilling programs. Over the years, we have designed and drilled exploration, production and injection wells in all types of environments. We cover the entire range of possibilities, from simple, shallow temperature gradient holes to the most complicated, deep multi-legged completions. We have projects in remote corners of the world and in areas with complex logistics and sensitivities, finding and developing resources with an extraordinarily wide range of temperatures, pressures and fluid chemistries. We execute geothermal drilling projects from well site selection through design, bidding, contracting, management, testing and clean-up. With a cumulative experience of more than 150,000 meters of drilling depth over the past three decades, we are uniquely qualified to help you achieve your drilling objectives.

Our geothermal drilling services include:

  • Well site selection and targeting
  • Design and permitting
  • Geothermal drilling specification and documentation
  • Procurement of geothermal drilling services and management of the bid process

“The operations were performed in a timely, efficient and professional manner. GeothermEx was well aware of, and paid close attention to, the costliness of well drilling operations and was exemplary in their efforts to control costs…I wholeheartedly recommend GeothermEx to anyone requiring top-flight geotechnical and/or well drilling services.”
