Exploration White Paper

Link to IPGT Exploration Procedures White Paper as at August 2012 (.pdf 112kb)

The IPGT Exploration Working Group has updated its white paper in order to outline the current state of the art and technology needs related to exploration for enhanced and other geothermal systems. This paper will assist IPGT countries to focus R&D efforts on the most critical areas.

The IPGT Steering Committee has agreed that the white papers will be published on the website as dynamic documents that will allow them to be revisited periodically so they can remain up to date with the most relevant information. Working Groups will aim to update their white papers yearly. This published version of the white paper was last updated in August 2012. Given the dynamic nature of the papers, constructive comments from the geothermal and the scientific community, as well as from the public are highly appreciated and will be used to improve the white papers. Comments and suggestions on the White papers shoud be sent to the IPGT Secretariat by email. Please contact the Secretariat at the IPGT Secretariat (IPGT@ret.gov.au).
