"Despite some difficulties, the project was able to drill down into the molten magma and control it; it was possible to set steel casing in the bottom of the hole; allowing the hole to blow superheated, high-pressure steam for months at temperatures exceeding 450 C, created a world record for geothermal heat." Quoted from the University of California, Riverside press release.

Report on California Geothermal
April 15, 2014 | Geothermal Energy Association
