Geothermal Resources of Five Pacific Island Nations

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In 1993 several member countries of the South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission, (SOPAC), requested a survey of regional geothermal potential. This request reflects a growing interest in the countries of the southwest Pacific to find reliable domestic energy resources which could result in less dependence on imported fossil fuels. With financial assistance from the New Zealand government a report was prepared for SOPAC by Geothermal Energy New Zealand Limited, (GENZL), on the resource data available and potential development of the geothermal fields. The report, published in June this year, includes a proposed exploration program to complete pre-commercial studies in five ... continued below

This paper describes the findings of the report and comments on the potential uses of geothermal energy in the developing countries of the South Pacific.
