Sinopec has completed drilling China’s deepest geothermal exploration well, Fushenre-1. The borehole is located in the southern island province of Hainan, reaching a subterranean depth of 5,200 meters.¬†It set a new record for the deepest geothermal exploration well in China.

The successful drilling of the geothermal exploration well revealed the formation mechanism of geothermal energy in south China, and will help to improve the large-scale development and utilization of geothermal resources in the region. Sinopec is dedicated to exploring geothermal energy development, and has established nearly 100 million square meters of geothermal heating capacity and built several regional geothermal heating projects.
