Utah FORGE: Drilling Data for Student Competition


Diagnostic drilling data (Pason log files) from Well 58-32 (previously labeled MU-ESW1), which was drilled near Milford Utah during Phase 2B of the FORGE Project to confirm geothermal reservoir characteristics met requirements for the final FORGE site. This dataset includes both raw, unprocessed drilling data recorded at 1Hz and a processed version downscaled to ~0.3m (1 ft) intervals.

Diagnostic drilling data were collected to obtain useful information regarding the nature of the subsurface materials and performance of the drilling rig and drilling bits, including rate of penetration (ROP), weight on bit, temperature, pump pressure, etc.
