DECISION I approve the drilling project as described in the Proposed Action of EA-NV-030-07-006. This decision is contingent on meeting all geothermal lease stipulations and monitoring requirements listed below and in EA-NV-030-07-006, as well as the Operations Plan and state permits. Due to the subsurface circumstance no Conditions of Approval are attached to this FONSI/Decision Record.

NEPA Proposed Action The purpose of the proposed action is to d
The purpose of the proposed action is to develop the geothermal resource within the Soda Lake Geothermal Unit area. The need for the proposed action is to increase the electrical generation capacity of the geothermal power plant. The proposed action includes the drilling of a directional production well into the subsurface of geothermal lease NVN-53372, to a depth of 9,500 feet within the boundaries of the approved Soda Lake Geothermal Unit, and located in the adjoining section to the west. The objective of the project is to encounter and test a deep geothermal resource in the Soda Lake Geothermal Unit.
