Abstract: The Hawaii Natural Energy Institute of the University of Hawaii is directing a Scientific Observation Hole (SOH) program. The SOHs are for scientific observation and monitoring purposes only. The holes will not be flow-tested or produced. The information to be gained from the SOHs will provide an assessment of subsurface geological conditions, ground water level and composition, temperature, drilling conditions, an inventory of possible mineral and geothermal resources, and an eruptive history of the island to the depth drilled. The SOHs, in combination with existing geothermal wells or future geothermal wells to be drilled by producers, can be instrumented to provide data relating to reservoir productivity, and to monitor changes in ground water conditions and volcanic activity.
