On January 22, 1994, Germany's Continental Deep Drilling Program reached a depth of 8553 m. The research well in Bavaria is now the deepest hole in western and mid-Europe. By the end of the year, the program expects to have reached a final depth of about 10,000 m and an in-situ formation temperature of 300°C.
