Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. Joint Venture Partner Receives $2 Million DOE Grant for CO(2)-based Geothermal Research at St Johns Dome in Arizona
Ridgeway has been informed that its joint venture partner, GreenFire Energy, has received notice of the award of a
The St Johns Dome, located in
The St. Johns Dome is considered to be an optimal location at which to generate CO(2)-based geothermal electricity. This is due to its combination of a large volume of low cost natural CO(2), the potential presence of a thermal reservoir underlying the dome area and a local connection into the power grid. The region in which the St. Johns Dome is located also contains six major coal-fired power plants that collectively emit about 90 million tons of CO(2) per year. If carbon capture technologies are deployed in the future, these facilities can provide the GreenFire JV with additional CO(2) for added power production, while sequestering that CO(2) at the same time. As power plants around the world begin implementing carbon capture and sequestration, many additional sites for CO(2)-based geothermal energy projects may become available.
“Exactly one year ago we announced our joint venture agreement with GreenFire Energy,” stated Mr.
