Document Description
The Buckeye Development Project involves drilling geothermal wells on 1 existing and 5 new drill pads, requiring the development of approximately ten acres and 2,500 feet of new roads. The project includes construction of 6,750 feet of new access corridors for pipelines and similar geothermal infrastructure. The Wildhorse Development project involves adding up to three new well pads, each approximately two acres in size, and 12,600 feet of new access corridors including roads, steamlines and a 21 KV electrical distribution line as part of the Wildhorse Steam Field. The mineral resources to be developed are owned by the State and the existing geothermal resources lease (PRC 8556.2) will be amended, in a form substantially the same as that on file in the Long Beach office of the Commission.
