Black. The proposed Newberry Volcano FORGE site is in central Oregon on the northwest flank of the largest volcano in the Cascades volcanic arc. Beneath Newberry Volcano is one of the largest geothermal heat reservoirs in the western United States, extensively studied for the last 40 years.

BPA has decided to acquire 20 average megawatts (aMW) of electrical power from a privately-owned geothermal power plant on the west flank of Newberry Volcano in Deschutes County, Oregon.

The Newberry Project will generate 30 aMW and will be developed, owned, and operated by CE Newberry, Inc. of Portland, Oregon. Newberry Volcano in Oregon, USA, has two small crater lakes inside its caldera: East Lake and Paulina Lake.

The m deep lakes differ in morphology, water chemistry and sediment composition. OREGON OBSIDIAN SOURCES BIG OBSIDIAN FLOW REFERENCES An Estimate of the Geothermal Potential of Newberry Volcano, Oregon.

Newberry Geothermal Project in Oregon continues with exploration Alexander Richter 1 Sep Davenport Power LLC, the operator of the Newberry Geothermal Project announces the continuation of the project with further exploration work, after the exploration campaign of proved unsuccessful.

Oct 27,  · The project site is about 10 miles northeast of La Pine, between U.S. Highway 97 and Paulina Lake. A traditional geothermal site relies on steam emitting from the earth, with a. Newberry volcano is a broad shield volcano located in central Oregon.

It has been built by thousands of eruptions, beginning aboutyears ago. At least 25 vents on the flanks and summit have been active during several eruptive episodes of the past 10, years.

The most recent eruption 1, years ago produced the Big Obsidian Flow. Thus, the volcano's long history and recent activity. Four deep geothermal exploration wells drilled on the upper northwest flank of the volcano encountered temperatures from to in excess of oF in both granitic plutons and in thermal metamorphosed volcanic rock.

Newberry Volcano is located in an area that has been volcanically active since late Eocene time. Newberry Volcano, a voluminous ( km3) basaltic/andesitic/rhyolitic shield volcano located near the intersection of the Cascade volcanic arc, the Oregon High Lava Plains and Brothers Fault Zone, and the northern Basin and Range Province, has been the site of geothermal exploration.

Newberry volcano is about 20 miles (30 km) southeast of Bend and is one of the largest volcanoes in the Cascades. The base of this shield volcano is 25 miles (40 km) in diameter. The summit caldera is 3 by 4 m iles (5 by 7 km).

Newberry volcano, centered about 20 miles southeast of Bend, Oregon, is among the largest Quaternary volcanoes in the conterminous United States.

It covers an area in excess of mi 2, and lavas from it extend northward many tens of miles beyond the volcano.

The volcano was identified as a potential site for geothermal energy development several decades ago, and geothermal exploration began in the s. Although geothermal resources were identified inside the caldera, resistance to industrial development led to creation of the Newberry National Volcanic Monument (NNVM) in and all geothermal leases were moved outside the monument.

USGS: Volcano Hazards Program - Cascades Volcano Observatory. Newberry Volcano is the largest volcano in the Cascades volcanic arc and covers an area the size of Rhode Island (about km 2 or mi 2).Unlike familiar cone-shaped Cascades volcanoes, Newberry was built into the shape of a broad shield by repeated eruptions over the pastyears.

One of those citizens was LandWatch's Executive Director, Paul Dewey. Read more about their work below. Central Oregon’s Newberry nears 25th anniversary.

Effort to create national monument grew from geothermal concern. May 26,  · An area on the west flank of the Newberry Volcano, outside the national volcanic monument seen here, is no longer in the running to become the site of a federal lab for enhanced geothermal lindsayvanbramer.com: Dylan Darling.The Newberry EGS Demonstration site is located on a federal geothermal lease just outside the Newberry National Volcanic Monument within the Deschutes National Forest.

Land in this area has been recognized for its high geothermal potential since the s, and since that time, local, state, and federal agencies have issued and monitored geothermal leases to.The result was a plan to cordon off the caldera and other features on Newberry Volcano from geothermal exploration and development in creating a national monument, a status typically held for lands managed by the National Park Service, said George Chesley, district ranger for what was then the Fort Rock District of the Deschutes National Forest.
