Exalo Drilling will drill a geothermal borehole for Chochołowskie Termy Sp. z o.o.

Exalo Drilling, represented by President of the Board Marcin Gawroński and Member of the Board Marcin Otfinowski, signed an agreement with Chochołowskie Termy, represented by Board Vice Presidents Rafał Kaciński and Sebastian Syrka. The agreement concerns the drilling of the Chochołów GT-1 geothermal well.

According to the agreement, it will be a directional borehole with trajectory "S" and the depth of 4 122 m. The main objective of the project is to extract thermal waters with a temperature over 90 degrees Celsius and a pumping capacity of over 250 m3/h. The well will be located several hundred metres from the thermal swimming pool complex Chochołowskie Termy. Currently, the thermal water that supplies the pools comes from a geothermal borehole drilled in 1989-1990 Chochołów PIG-1. Ultimately, the newly drilled Chochołów GT-1 well will be used as a production well, while the one currently in use will be used to inject cooled water into the deposit.

The project is co-financed by the Polish Geothermal Plus programme of the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management and by the EEA Financial Mechanism 2014-2021 from the programme: "Environment, Energy and Climate Change".

Drilling with the IRI 1200 device (Rig 204) is planned to start in February/March 2022.
