  • Geothermal Energy... Power from the Depths

    The Earth's crust is a bountiful source of energy—and fossil fuels are only part of the story. Heat or thermal energy is by far the more abundant resource. To put it in perspective, the thermal energy in the uppermost six miles of the Earth's crust amounts to 50,000 times the energy of all oil and gas resources in the world! The word 'geothermal' literally means 'Earth' plus 'heat.' ...

  • Design of method and mechanism for geothermal energy extraction

    By drilling using a specially designed hydride carbide (melting point: 1,365°C) drill, we can drill the earth's crust to about 5 to 40 km to reach temperatures of 700 to 1,000°C, with minimum cost of the drill and drilling technology. Further, we can extract energy by pouring in water on an inserted carbide alloy vessel into the drilled well and bringing out as steam to drive the turbines. By ...

  • Striving For Perfection: Flow Energy Partnership Improves Geothermal Energy Production

    Since the early twentieth century, geothermal energy has been used to produce electricity. In the 1980’s and 90’s, rapid expansion in the demand for geothermal energy put pressure on suppliers to reduce costs and increase efficiencies. Now geothermal energy production is becoming a common practice around the globe. One of the largest energy companies in Turkey is blazing the ...

  • GeoSmart bags multi-loop and pump handler

    GeoSmart Energy has acquired a time-saving multi-loop and pump handler designed for geothermal drilling. The GeoSmart Push'N Pull simplifies the installation of geothermal pipes in vertical drill applications, saving time, money and manual labour. "Geothermal drillers will appreciate its'push'factor for inserting pipe while water well drillers will love its 'pull' factor for extracting pumps ...

  • Sonic Rigs Set the Pace

    Drilling geothermal holes in under three hours, sonic rigs have set the pace. Drilling a test hole for a future geothermal project, a Sonic Drill Corporation rig was able to bore past 300ft and complete the hole in two hours and three minutes. The drilling project, part of a law library extension for the University of British Columbia in Canada, was contracted to Hemmera Energy, a division of ...
