Geothermal Energy in Iran
Geothermal Prospect Area in Iran
Surface detailed geothermal explorations
(geological, geophysical and geochemical) have been
carried out in the Sabalan regions. Results of feasibility
studies for two zones of high geothermal potential
(32 × 1018 Jules) in the Sabalan region indicate
the following priority: Meshkinshahr and Sarein.
According to geothermometric evaluation the average
temperature of deep reservoirs are 130°C - 250°C.
Therefore, Meshkinshahr area has the highest geothermal
potential for electric generation whereas Sarein
area for direct uses.
