Following a successful proof of concept, the team intends to re-enter the first hole with a drill rig to recover another core (for second point in time series) and monitor temperature as well as pressure while the borehole heats up again. When the conditions at the bottom of the well have reached equilibrium with the surrounding environment, we may initiate flow testing of the well (involving cooling of the magma). If we deem the well and the conditions suitable without jeopardising its future, a flow test will put the new flexible couplings and casing to the extreme test of surviving the harsh condition of high temperature and corrosive geothermal fluids. The flow test will also provide valuable opportunity to sample the chemistry of the geothermal fluid close to magma as well as various opportunities for geothermal engineering testing and experiments.
