Journal Article: Present Status Of Fang Geothermal Project, Thailand

Geothermal exploration work in Fang area began in 1977 when the BRGM and Geowatt of France and EGAT agreed to collaborate on a feasibility study of electric energy production in Fang geothermal area. Twelve exploration wells (FGTE series) and eight slim holes (BH series) have been drilled and produce hot water at 105°C, 0.4 bars at a discharge rate of up to 14 l/s. Exploration well testing and the economic study is to be conducted as part of the next cooperation programme of AFME and EGAT during late 1985 - early 1986. The first 100-300 kWe demonstration plant is planned to be installed by the end of Fiscal Year 1986. The future of the development programme depends on the success of this demonstration plant.
