Maximising oil recovery from the UKCS
by applying proven polymer injection techniques right from the start
Orcadian, named for the beautiful Orkney Islands
Orcadian was previously known as Pharis Energy
Minimising carbon dioxide emissions
through innovative process engineering coupled with facility electrification
What we do
Orcadian’s strategy is to secure discovered resources at low cost and to transform those resources into reserves and onto production
The Pilot field is our key asset. The field is well appraised and ready for development, Orcadian has selected, as the very best development concept, a low salinity polymer flood with two wellhead platforms, a dedicated FPSO, and a floating wind turbine. The next step is to secure development partners (either operators or an alliance of contractors) so that we can deliver a fully financed FDP to the OGA.
To support the OGA’s Net Zero initiative we have significantly reduced process heat demands by including heat pumps in our process design and we have selected a floating wind turbine to provide power backed up by highly efficient gas fuelled reciprocating engines to ensure a continuous power supply.
