Geothermal

Exploration and development of energy resources comprises a substantial portion of the Alaska Earth Sciences consulting portfolio.

Geothermal energy is in the early stages of development in Alaska.  Alaska Earth Sciences leverages its experience in project management, logistics, permitting, engineering, geophysical surveys and geological exploration to help launch geothermal projects. 

In recent years, AES has supported the efforts of Ormat, the largest developer of geothermal energy worldwide, to explore its State leases on the flank of Mt. Spurr, 75 miles west of Anchorage.

We have also provided project management, logistics, permitting, engineering, geophysical, mud logging and geological services to Naknek Electric Association's deep drilling program on Bristol Bay.

“Alaska is at a critical juncture. Several major mines are now in production and the State is realizing more mining jobs and revenues than ever before. We can – and must – demonstrate that exploration and mining of coal and minerals is good for rural villages, the state’s economy, and compatible with a clean and healthy environment.” Rob Retherford, President
