Abstract:

It is the purpose of the present study to determine the feasibility of locating a pilot project in the Texas Gulf Coast area for the purpose of tapping the overpressured aquifers and transforming the thermal and mechanical energy into electrical power. Three areas in south Texas were given particular attention for their feasibility of being the site of the pilot project. These are the Sebastian area in northwest Cameron County, the Port Mansfield area in eastern Willacy County, and the Corpus Christi area.
