Title: Hawaii Geothermal Project. Phase II: final report on well HGP-A extension to Contract E(04-3)-1093

Abstract

Drilling was completed on HGP-A to a depth of 6445 feet on April 27, 1976. A final core was taken; a series of logging runs performed, both with Gearhart-Owen equipment and with the Kuster temperature gauge; and the drill stem was withdrawn and laid down on the side adjacent to the rig - as a safety measure against possible volcanic tremors. A maximum temperature to date of 288/sup 0/C (550/sup 0/F) was recorded on May 13 at 4500 feet. The weighted temperature probe would penetrate no deeper into the drilling mud, which apparently is stiffening. The temperature depth relationship developed in HGP-A is illustrated.
