Slim hole collection of subsurface samples and data is a cost-effective means of risk mitigation in the exploration and development phases of a geothermal program. We employ blowout prevention equipment and temperature measurement while coring. Our crews hold well control certification, instrumentation for measuring temperature while drilling, and international project management experience.

DOSECC is a member of the Geothermal Energy Association.
