Nova Scotia Offshore Energy Research Association (OERA) have published a Request for Proposals for a study to compile information and data to provide a preliminary indication of geothermal resources in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada.

In an announcement on the extension of the deadline for a published Request for Proposals to May 1, 2020, we learned about this opportunity in Nova Scotia.

On behalf of the Nova Scotia Department Energy & Mines and Department of Agriculture, OERA is seeking proposals for a study to compile available geological, geothermal, geophysical and hydrogeological information, provide a preliminary opinion on the potential for geothermal development in Nova Scotia, and recommend next steps to further de-risk targeted areas. This project will also describe the economic case for potential geothermal resource exploration and development in the province. This work supports the Province’s broad energy policy objectives related to climate change, inclusive economic development and the sustainable development of Nova Scotia’s energy resources. Proposals are due by Friday May 1, 2020 at 5:00PM AST. Submission details are in the pdf below.

Please be advised that as of Tuesday April 21, no questions of a technical nature have thus far been received.  Questions can be posed until Friday April 24th, end-of-day.
