Geothermal resource assessment consulting services

Validating clean, baseload power potential for geothermal project developments

Geothermal resource.

We see the risk and reward in every resource

In any geothermal project, the most significant variable is the resource itself. Several moving parts need to come together for a commercially successful geothermal project development. The critical parameters are resource temperature, depth, productivity, and sustainability.

We leverage our GeothermEx™ geothermal consulting services to accurately evaluate geothermal resources. The breadth and depth of our subsurface knowledge and expertise sets us apart—from describing the geology, stratigraphy, and tectonic structures, to permeable pathways for geothermal fluid migration. We comb through every relevant piece of your geological, geochemical, and geophysical drilling and testing data to unearth the truth about your resource—whether its power capacity is 5 or 500 MW.

Global leaders in resource assessment

We’ve assessed resources all over the world, unlocking nearly 8.5 GW of geothermal power.
