Paralana Geothermal

The Paralana geothermal energy project site is adjacent to the Mt Painter region of South Australia's northern Flinders Ranges.

Petratherm and its joint venture partners (Beach Energy and TRUenergy Geothermal) have completed the first of two deep wells required to begin creating a geothermal energy pilot plant in 2011.

The Paralana Project is considered uniquely positioned to enable commercial viability at small scale (7.5 MW building over time to 30 MW) as a  direct result of the close proximity of the Beverley Uranium Mine and high cost of their current 'off-grid' electricity supply.

Large-scale development of the Paralana site, following the development and "bedding down" process, will involve access the National Electricity Market at Port Augusta and/or Olympic Dam.

In ly 2014, Petrotherm announced that it had been unable to secure funding to continue the project.
