Title: European Geothermal Drilling Experience-Problem Areas and Case Studies

European Geothermal Drilling Experience-Problem Areas and Case Studies Geothermal drilling has long been restricted in Western Europe to the sole dry steam field of Larderello in Italy. In the last few years, a wider experience is building up as a consequence of intensified exploration and development programs carried out for evaluation and production of both low- and high-enthalpy geothermal resources. A sample of some 40 boreholes indicates the problem areas which are given.
