DOSECC Exploration Services Drilling Six Geothermal Test Holes in Pagosa Springs, CO

To help with development of future geothermal resources in the area.

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (Nov. 24, 2014) – DOSECC Exploration Services, LLC (DES) is drilling six test holes in Pagosa Springs, Colo., to help with development of future geothermal resources in the area.


The Pagosa Verde project consists of one 2,000-foot-deep wells and five 1,000-foot-deep holes on private and schools lands near Pagosa Springs, about 60 miles east of Durango in southern Colorado. Developers believe temperatures of up to 180 degrees will be measured from the holes. Exploration hole drilling is scheduled to be completed by year's end.

"Geothermal is a critical energy source to be explored and developed, especially as climate change and global warming become more of an issue," said Dennis Nielson, DES chief executive officer. "We have the equipment and expertise to quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively assist Pagosa Springs in this important project."

Pagosa Springs is one of several projects DES is undertaking. In an ambitious and challenging move, DES is designing and building a drilling system that will map the bedrock beneath the Antarctic ice sheet and search for the oldest ice. Teams will drill through 1 1/2 miles of ice to reach bedrock. Subsequent optical logging is expected to reveal if the ice contains volcanic ash, gas bubbles, and other materials that will help the scientific community gauge what the Earth's climate was like a million years ago – and how it's changed since.

The company is also overseeing and conducting projects in Indonesia, Africa, and other parts of the United States.

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
