Progress and current status

Longonot Geothermal Project
With the first stage of preparation completed, the second phase of exploratory drilling work is expected to begin in late 2013, lasting 14-18 months.

The main objective of this phase is to drill exploration wells to confirm that suitable temperatures exist to provide usable geothermal energy. In addition to the drilling and testing of exploration wells, activities will include:

  • road construction;
  • obtaining drilling rigs; and
  • provision of water supplies.

In preparation for the initial drilling, surveys have been made to allow design work to begin on the access road, the well pad locations and the water reservoir location.
