Abstract
"The drilling will be exploratory in nature, and will provide an extension of the knowledge now existing from the HGP-A well on the reasonable supposition that this drilling will likely penetrate the same geothermal reservoir. The results of this drilling and testing will therefore be of the utmost importance to reservoir evaluation as it relates to the HGP-A well and the State's effort in determining the nature and extent of the Kapoho resource. Comparison with our other exploration prospects at the Opihikao prospect and Daiichi prospect will aid in selecting the best initial site for development and production. A triangular evaluation made possible by wells drilled and tested in all three of these prospects will yield significant geothermal information on the:extent and nature as well as reservoir interrelationship in the Puna area. Although several sites have been designated, only one (located as an offset to HGP-A) will initially be nominated for an exploratory well drilling permit. The remainder represent subsequent sites for future drilling if more exploratory work is needed, or if not, as possible sites for production wells in the future. The drilling would take place late 1980 or early 1981, using the crew and equipment now working on our Opihikao prospect, and open to your inspection upon request. This work would be undertaken by the Barnwell Geothermal Program, a joint venture between Barnwell Geothermal Corp. and Geothermal Exploration & Development Corp. ("GEDCO"). Drilling would be performed by Water Resources International, Inc. ("WRII"), with GeothermEx acting as consultants."
"The property involved is located approximately 1 mile southeast of the existing HGP geothermal well site and about 2,000 feet north of the Pohoiki Road, Laepaoo, Puna, Hawaii."
