Montserrat’s geothermal energy exploration project is moving forward.

Preparations have begun for the drilling of what will be the island’s third geothermal well.

Montserrat is dredging Port Plymouth in order to accommodate the arrival of the vessel transporting the drilling equipment for the project.

The purpose of the third well is to get closer to the core of the geothermal reservoir in Montserrat, officials said in a statement.

This phase is considered the “reinjection” or “exploration phase,” which will be used to extract knowledge and ultimately create a production well.

Montserrat is one of several islands in the Eastern Caribbean pursuing geothermal energy at various stages, including Nevis and St Lucia.
