Journal Article: Mofete Geothermal Field

This report deals with the Mofete geothermal field, which was discovered in southern Italy by AGIP, the Italian state-owned company for exploration of oil, gas and other alternative energy resources, such as geothermal. AGIP is the main operator in the Mofete geothermal field, in joint venture with ENEL, the National Electricity Board. Seven wells have been drilled, and two producing aquifers found at depths between 500 and 2000 m. The preliminary interpretation of a long-term test (three months), together with the model of the field, suggest that a 10 MW power-plant will operate in the near future in the limited area considered favourable so far for geothermal production.
