Resource Analysis for Deep Direct-Use Feasibility Study in East Texas, Part 2


The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Southern Methodist University Geothermal Laboratory, Eastman Chemical, Turbine Air Systems, and the Electric Power Research Institute are evaluating the feasibility of using geothermal heat to improve the efficiency of natural gas power plants. The area of interest is the Eastman Chemical plant in Longview, Texas, which is on the northwestern margin of the Sabine Uplift. Part 2 focus on:
1) Permit report and spreadsheet on Federal, State, and Local agency requirements for a geothermal deep direct-use project in the vicinity of East Texas for Harrison, Gregg, Rusk, and Panola Counties.
2) Evaluation of the Geologic Variability of Travis Peak Formation as a reservoir.
3) Updated Heat Flow Memo with additional references.
