Nevis’ geothermal resource is being characterized as one of the top six geothermal reservoirs in the world. Thermal Energy Partner’s Big-Data Analytics approach (that determined Nevis as a commercial-grade resource) was confirmed by GeothermEx’s team during a recently completed geothermal flow and injection test. GeothermEx says its findings confirm the requisite temperature and flow necessary for a sustainable supply of geothermal energy on Nevis and the reservoir has been classified as high-grade commercial quality. Temperatures were recorded at 492F (255 C) at a depth of approximately 3,000’ and the company anticipates drilling the production wells to 4,000’.
For St. Kitts and Nevis, TEP’s team predicted a very high-grade of commercial quality resource that not only can be used as base-load electricity for Nevis but can be exported to other islands.
