Sandia National Laboratories manages the Geothermal Drilling and Completion Program for the US Department of Energy. The primary purpose of this program is to expand access to the geothermal resource by reducing the cost of drilling and completing geothermal wells. This cost is typically two to five times that for an oil well of comparable depth, and well cost is usually about half the total capital investment for a geothermally-powered plant to generate electricity.
