|Abstract:||The prevention of an uncontrolled well flow, commonly known as a "blowout", is of vi tal importance for geothermal operators, drilling crews, state and county regulators, and the general public. Geothermal well blowouts have not been the cause of a significant number of fatalities, and the danger of fire, as in petroleum drilling, is quite low. However, blowout incidents may have a negative impact on surface and subsurface environments, cause resource waste, and develope unfavorable public perceptions of geothermal activity. These concerns are powerful incentives to operators and regulators to minimize the risks of a blowout. Includes related correspondence, memos and faxes.|
