SOUTHERN MOROCCO GEOCHEMISTRY FIELD CAMPAIGN

Rabat, 2 December 2019

Under the project: “Realisation d’une Etude des Potentiatites Geothermiques dans les Provinces du Sud”, and following the successfully delivery and showcase of the first phase of the Project to the National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mines of Morocco (ONHYM), encompassed under the second phase of the project, Gesto team performed a geochemistry field campaign in which samples of water and gas were collected from water wells during the last month of November. This second stage of the project will allow adding new geothermal data – supported by the collected samples – in order to characterize the existent reservoirs.

The project “Realisation d’une Etude des Potentiatites Geothermiques dans les Provinces du Sud” aims to identify and study areas with geothermal potential in the provinces of south of Morocco in an area of more than 140 000 km2, and will comprehend hydrogeological, geochemical, geological and geophysical studies, with the goal to classify the different energy levels of the geothermal potential, in order to develop tailored-made solutions to aid overcoming Morocco’s southern provinces’ energy needs.
