Appraisal

Appraisal well heads
The third phase will last approximately 18 months and will involve a programme of test drilling.

Following a successful exploration phase, a detailed well-drilling program will begin.  The primary objective of this phase will be to prove that the geothermal resource can provide enough steam to the power plant for its predicted lifetime.

Similar drilling rigs to those used for exploration will be used to drill more wells, initially from the exploration drilling well pads.
