Exploration blocks

Since 2018, 14 tenders have been published for the allocation of areas for the exploration and exploitation of geothermal water for the purpose of energy production, 6 licenses for exploration of geothermal waters have been granted, while the 7 new ones are in the bidding process.

The Croatian Hydrocarbon Agency continues to work on the promotion and development of new models for geothermal energy management.

Exploring potential sources of hot water involves making extremely expensive deep wells. This is high-risk investment that may not always produce a positive result.

Unlike other countries, in Croatia the process is simpler and provides a certain type of security because potentials have already been identified in previous oil and gas explorations. All data can be found in our Data Room.
