How PLASMABIT® drilling platform disrupts the geothermal sector?

Current geothermal drilling challenges are prohibitive drilling costs, inefficiency of drilling operation at greater depths and geothermal energy availability at 3% of Earth´s surface only. Intelligent drilling platform PLASMABIT® overcomes these limits with unprecedented reliability.

With our unique technology any location on Earth can provide clean, inexpensive and nonstop available geothermal energy. Accessing 10 km depths allows greater energy production per well than previously calculated. Geothermal Anywhere is what the “GA” in GA Drilling stands for.

PLASMABIT® drilling platform is composed of four main subsystems

  • Pulse Plasma Drilling Head
  • Bottom Hole Assembly Modules
  • Transfer Line Subsystem
  • Surface Equipment with Control System

PLASMABIT® comes together as a synergy of:

  • patented drilling platform for ultra-deep depths operations
  • expertise of the conventional drilling from the oil & gas industry
  • best practices from successful geothermal projects worldwide.

PLASMABIT® is the intelligent modular platform and can be connected to market standard equipment.

PLASMABIT® keeps drilling costs at depth linear

PLASMABIT® drilling platform has clear step-change cost, performance, working life and environmental impact advantages compared to a conventional mechanical bit in deeper depths:

  • The rapid rate of penetration in hard rock environment ensures linear drilling costs instead of exponential → costs of drilling per meter are lower by an order of magnitude.
  • Doesn’t require contact or rotation with the formation, it is inherently less prone to any mechanical wear thus reduces the need for regular replacement of the tool → the costly downtime is considerably reduced.
  • Decreased noise generation and resonance, below 40dB beyond 1,000ft (300m) depth → it’s important forapplicability in populated areas.

Integrated advantages of hybrid conventional and PLASMABIT® drilling

By combining PLASMABIT® solution with conventional off the shelf modular system, in conjunction with engineering, procurement, and construction partners, PLASMABIT® will deliver the ultra-deep geothermal energy at low cost anywhere.

The core PLASMABIT® technology platform
is vetted and validated by major industry players:

Geothermal anywhere drilling

Capability to test and simulate from idea to manufacturing

Geothermal anywhere drilling

Thousands of tests drilled through all materials with a high rate of penetration

Geothermal anywhere drilling

A proved lifetime in well high temperature and high-pressure enviroment

Geothermal anywhere drilling

Passed due diligence by industry, major banks and energy companies

PLASMABIT® has potential to accelerate transition to cleantech in several industries

By accessing very high temperatures in depths, PLASMABIT® will unlock the whole cascade of applications, which can turn geothermal power into the most versatile, constant and least expensive source of energy available. Our ultra-deep geothermal solution will promote local production, self-sufficiency, resiliency, and averts the climate crisis.

 

Industries Game Changer

Environmentally friendly decommissioning

Thirty thousand post-production wells worldwide have to be decommissioned in the next 15 years. The operation is based on removing key sections of casing and production tubing, then plugged to create a safe environmental barrier.

PLASMABIT® milling platform can remove the need for several traditional operations, thus significantly reduces time and costs. Operators are supporting GA Drilling with expertise, consulting, state-of-the-art equipment, and assets.

Mineral exploration

Raw materials demand is booming due to the proliferation of batteries and other new products.

PLASMABIT® can transform the mineral exploration market through real-time data acquisition while drilling and unique 3D mapping.

Tunnelling

Today’s high-cost valuation of megaprojects is closely linked to the productivity of tunnel boring machines.

PLASMABIT® can reduce the time and cost of conventional boring to advance new transportation infrastructure development,  both for under-city tunnels or hyperloop.
