Expressions of Interest for Onshore Drilling Contractors to facilitate drilling and testing of at least four deep geothermal wells in Cornwall

Following recent success in obtaining planning permission for a third geothermal power generation site in Cornwall, Geothermal Engineering Ltd (GEL) are issuing an Expression Of Interest (EOI) for suitable Onshore UK Drilling Contractors to facilitate the drilling and testing of at least four deep wells. The EOI also seeks the provision of a suitable workover rig / unit for ESP maintenance at GEL’s ongoing development at United Downs, near Redruth. Ideally one contractor will be able to supply all necessary services and equipment listed in the EOI.

GEL are hopeful that by the end of 2023, planning permission will be secured for a further two sites with similar drilling, testing and ESP requirements.

For more detail on the work scope, please contact GEL Drilling Manager Peter Jones at

EOI responses should be provided by no later than 30th March 2023.
