Fervo Energy reports breakthrough in field-scale EGS project in Nevada

Fervo Energy has announced a major milestone with the successful drilling, stimulation, and testing results from the full-scale EGS pilot project in Nevada.

Fervo Energy has announced positive results of a 30-day well test conducted at Project Red, the company’s full-scale EGS pilot project in northern Nevada.

The results indicate that the well doublet, connected by a hydraulically fractured reservoir, can support 3.5 MW of electricity production (assuming a supercritical ORC cycle) with a flowrate of 63 L/s at high temperature. Gross power output ranged from 2 to 3.5 MW throughout the test. The flow rate and power output achieved during the test exceed the performance of other historic EGS projects.
