Work is progressing currently on four of the tasks originally proposed:
Task 3.1 Well Test Analysis
Task 3.2 Ghyben-Herzberg Lens Dynamics
Task 3.6.1 Heat Exchanqer and Binary-Fluid Cycle Design
Task 3.6.2 Optimal Hot Brine Plant Design
This report summarizes the timetable (A) for each task, the progress made to date (B), and the future work planned (C).
