Commercial Stimulation Services
AltaRock’s multi-zone stimulation can increase the economic gain at existing power plants by increasing reservoir size, capacity and life of the system. Many conventional geothermal systems suffer from declining production due to geothermal resource depletion. AltaRock uses patented stimulation technology to create new fracture zones adjacent to existing geothermal systems. This effectively expands the size and heat transfer efficiency of the geothermal reservoir.
As a result, power generation capacity can be increased by as much as 100 percent at existing facilities with no new drilling investment or risk required. Using this approach, the current domestic geothermal generating capacity of 3.8 gigawatts of electricity could be doubled without drilling a single new well. AltaRock’s team of engineers can also increase the efficiency of existing power plant infrastructure and decrease evaporative loss in the cooling system to further extend the life of existing geothermal power projects.
