Wells of Opportunity (WOO): Amplify II & ReAmplify

Through the FY21 Wells of Opportunity (referred to as WOO going forward) FOA, DOE's Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) is soliciting geothermal and hydrocarbon well owners or operators with existing wells that are willing to partner with DOE to advance and test EGS technologies in-situ.

wells could be idle or currently used for injection, production, and/or monitoring.

Due to the criticality of the technology prototyping and methodology testing phase of research and development in the innovation pipeline, this FOA focuses on active field testing, where the Federal government takes on the associated cost and risks.

Topic Area 1, Amplify (EGS Near-Field RD&D):
This field validation effort will culminate in new power production, adding to the commercial viability of existing geothermal fields.

The goal of Amplify is to illustrate that near-field and in-field EGS can be successfully deployed now as a result of recent technology advancements and that low permeability/underproductive wells near and in existing hydrothermal fields can be turned into valuable assets using EGS techniques.

Topic Area 2, ReAmplify (Geothermal production from hydrocarbon wells):
The objective of this initiative is to establish the commercial viability of geothermal energy production from existing hydrocarbon fields.

The goal of ReAmplify is to establish a pilot program where the production of geothermal heat from existing hydrocarbon fields can be demonstrated for electricity production or direct use applications.
