Abstract:Enclosed: cover letter that states DLNR approved this proposal.
"The HGP-A well was temporarily plugged in December 1994 in a manner that allowed the cased well bore to be used while preventing geothermal fluids from reaching surface. Now the decision has been made to plug and abandon the well. In order to meet the DLNR regulations for well abandonment, the temporary plug should be removed from the well bore. Then the well bore through the geothermal producing zones can be plugged. Any attempt to do so in 1994 would have been premature, as plugging through the producing zones would have rendered the well useless for any further scientific work in the productive interval. The existing plug should be removed so that the well bore can be plugged through the producing zones. The casing above the geothermal zones will also have to be plugged to complete the abandonment."
