Canada Geothermal DEEP Success In Saskatchewan
Canadian DEEP Earth Energy Production Corp. reports successful tests of production and injection well. The company is now constructing the first 20 MW geothermal power plant facility in Saskatchewan.
This interesting article is about the Canadian Geothermal and District Energy industry. A staggering 49% of the world’s energy consumption is related to indoor climate – heating, cooling and tap water heating. Alfa Laval’s energy-efficient heating solutions can use recycled or renewable energy to cut energy consumption and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

“Canadian geothermal developer DEEP… will commence drilling this month with the deepest horizontal well to date in Saskatchewan’s history, allowing for the installation of a large diameter submersible pump. This initial horizontal well will be the first step in constructing the first geothermal power facility in Canada…
…In addition to geothermal power generation, DEEP is pursuing the utilization of waste oilfield flare gas and solar generation to power the facility’s internal and external parasitic power requirements (cooling towers, lighting, pumps).
This globally unique power hub will produce clean baseload power while significantly reducing fossil fuel emissions. Utilizing local world class oilfield drilling expertise, this project is a first step in Canada’s significant energy transition to clean power. This first 20 MW field would offset approximately 114,000 metric tonnes of CO2 /year, equal to removing 32,000 cars off the road annually.
Major private and public sector greenhouse developments that support research into diverse high-value crops, increase farm profitability and supply locally grown produce will utilize waste heat from the project, providing major local employment opportunities and addressing national food security concerns...”
