An Evaluation Of Geothermal Resources In Nebraska

Preliminary Data From Heat Flow Determination In Nebraska During 1978 Have Revealed A Significant Heat Flow Anomaly In Southeastern Nebraska And A Gradual Westward Increase In Heat Flow That May Extend Across The Great Plains To The Rocky Mountains. The Data Suggest That Much Of Western Nebraska And Probably Considerable Portions Of The Great Plains Province Including The Dakotas, Wyoming, Kansas, And Eastern Colorado May Have Potential For Low-Temperature Geothermal Energy. It Is Proposed That An In-Depth Study Of Nebraska Be Conducted To Delineate Areas Of Geothermal Energy Potential. The Project Will Have Three Interrelated Aspects: 1) Field Data Collection Of Temperature Gradients And Thermal Conductivity Analysis, 2) An Inventory Of File Data Pertaining To Oil Well Bottom-Hole Temperature And Aquifer Temperature, And 3) A Series Of Shallow And Medium Depth Holes Will Be Drilled And Cased To Serve As A Monitoring Data Base For The Subsidiary Information Collected.
