Ormat Nevada, Inc., proposes to drill up to 16 exploratory wells, each within a well pad ranging in size from 2 – 4 acres.  Each well pad would accommodate a drill rig and other structures related to the operation.  Access to each pad would be through existing or new aggregate access roads off of Highway 20.  If approved, the applicant would begin work late summer 2013.
