Western GeoPower Corp projects reasonable permeability and deep water table at South Meager project, Canada

Western GeoPower Corp (TSX-V: WGP.V) (FRANKFURT: WE6.F), a renewable energy company, said on 22 April that independent consultants GeothermEx Inc have recommended a drilling programme at the South Meager geothermal reservoir in British Columbia, Canada, to target a recently-identified zone of high permeability which has demonstrated commercial potential.

According to results of airlift-assisted flow-testing of well MC-8, the consultants projected that a new deviated well starting from a lower wellhead elevation into the same permeable zone and at a much shorter vertical depth than well MC-8 would flow at the equivalent of more than 6 megawatts (MW) of electrical energy.

In addition, the consultants have designed a deviated well starting from the valley floor with a projected true vertical depth of 1,660 metres and a total wellbore length of less than 2,000 metres to access the zone of permeability. The well could flow at the equivalent of 6.4 MW of electrical output at a wellhead pressure of 140 psig.

The company said that several excellent and easily-accessible locations for new drill pads are available on the valley floor with ready access to the permeable zones in MC-8 and MC-6. Western plans to commence the permitting process for the future wells.

Additionally, the company stated that it continues to negotiate with provincial government agencies and key community and First Nations stakeholders in preparation for submission of an Application for Certification of the South Meager project under the BC Environmental Assessment Act.
