Increasing upstream brine production Well Engineering & Drilling Operations.

Vulcan has established its own in-house geothermal drilling company, Vercana, due to a high demand for geothermal renewable energy projects.​

Well-known area Increasing upstream brine production.

Vulcan has a highly experienced well construction team, with the full scale well delivery process being covered, as well as drilling operations with 25+ years of experience from Supervisor to Management level.

  • >1,000 oil & gas and 24 deep geothermal wells already completed in the URVBF.​
  • In our Phase One project area, four deep geothermal wells have been in operation for more than 10 years.

Brine production Conservative approach.

  • Targeting brine production from sandstone only, where seismicity risks are very low, in line with industry best-practice.​
  • Using conservative flow rates estimates, with an average flow rate (85l/s), below demonstrated well performance in the area (>100l/s), leaving room for upside.​
  • Brownfield development, Vulcan is increasing the number of its existing production well sites from two to seven during Phase One project build.
