_____
With exploration completed, the next step at Crump Geyser is to drill three production wells off-setting the Crump Geyser well to establish feasibility of a 30 MW development. Crump Geyser received a US$1.76 M DOE grant for innovative exploration and drilling.

Update 3/1/13 from EFSC:
Alternative Earth Resources, formerly Nevada Geothermal Power, has a joint venture with Ormat to develop a 30 MW plant by 2013 in the Crump Geyser area near Adel, OR. The developers have leaseholds on 35 square miles of private land in the Warner Valley Rift Basin and estimate that the reservoir could produce 40 ‚Äì 80MW. They have encountered 265¬?F thermal water at shallow depths in some areas and further drilling is planned to explore for potential higher temperature resources (300-320¬?F). AER is seeking buyers and/or joint venture partners for the project.
