DEEP Earth Energy Production Corp. said it has begun engineering and procurement activities for a planned 25 MW geothermal facility in Saskatchewan. Field construction is planned for the third quarter.
DEEP said that the reservoir characteristics could support construction of multiple geothermal expansion facilities in southeast Saskatchewan over several years. The project includes a 5 MW power purchase agreement with SaskPower.
Plans call for the facility to be built in two phases: 5 MW followed by an additional 20 MW at the same location. Production and injection wells are planned to be drilled to a depth of around 3.5 kilometers and horizontally for an additional 3 kilometers.
