Utah FORGE

The Utah FORGE (Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy) laboratory, near Milford, Utah, comprises a large volume of hot crystalline granite between two deep directionally drilled wells at around 8000 feet depth below the surface. Utah FORGE scientists and engineers work to develop, test, and accelerate breakthroughs in enhanced geothermal system (EGS) technologies and techniques, including the initialization and continuation of fracture networks in basement rock formations.

The Utah FORGE research team is led by the University of Utah's Energy and Geoscience Institute (EGI).

Interactive Visualization of Utah FORGE Stimulation Data

Use the visualization below to explore the temperature and pressure (measured at the surface) during each stimulation cycle for three zones (deep, intermediate, and shallow) within the 58-32 well.
