SASEG Excursion 23rd January 2018
Visit geothermal well site Satigny (GE)

Thanks to the initiative of SASEG management committee member Prof. Andrea Moscariello and his team at Univeristy of Geneva we start the year with offering an exciting guided visit to the site where a geothermal well is currently drilling, at Satigny west of Geneva. It is the first well of the Géothermie 2020 project of Services industriels de Genève (SIG). It has a planned T.D. of 677 m in the Lowermost Cretaceous. The first section, to 340 m, was completed before the holiday break. 

More on the aim of the well and the geology is contained in the following documents:“GEO_2020_panneau_satigny” and “Medienmitteilung_Satigny_16.11.2017-1”
