Session 8: Hot Dry Rock Update

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In 1970, Los Alamos began an informal study of the possible usefulness of hot dry rock (HDR) energy systems based on circulation of water through hydraulic fractures connecting two wellbores drilled into hot crustal rock of low initial permeability and free-water content. In 1973 this was established as a formal HDR Program. It has since been sponsored by DOE and its predecessor agencies, with supplementary support since 1980 by agencies of the governments of West Germany and Japan. In the meantime, complementary HDR projects have been initiated in Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, Sweden, France, and the Soviet Union, and ... continued below

In the meantime, complementary HDR projects have been initiated in Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, Sweden, France, and the Soviet Union, and several other countries have undertaken HDR resource evaluations and theoretical background studies. The HDR Program is now truly international, although the broadest and most advanced effort is still at Los Alamos.
