Phoenix RDS is a specialist upstream oil and gas subsurface consultancy, which develops and delivers optimised reservoir solutions for the full life cycle of oil and gas developments. One novel project it wanted to develop was the potential to improve Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) outcomes by optimising and managing polymer floods using improved Flow Control Devices (FCDs).
We have now published our case studies Flip Book, showcasing numerous examples of companies collaborating with Scottish Universities, alongside OGIC support, to complete innovative projects.OGIC Case Studies
Tendeka is a leading provider of completions systems and services to the upstream oil and gas industry. It identified an opportunity to perform a computational investigation of the performance of the Autonomous Inflow Control Device (AICD), which is used as a valve for oil production applications.
TechnipFMC is a global leader in subsea, onshore/offshore and surface projects. Identifying the need to develop a method of suspending the umbilical in the water column and transferring the weight, TechnipFMC approached OGIC and partnered with the University of Aberdeen to undertake concept design, detailed design, prototype manufacture and testing of their load bearing connector.
The Weir Group identified an opportunity to develop a coating material combining a 2D nanomaterial with polymers that would either reduce or eliminate gas permeation and worked with OGIC and Heriot-Watt University as their academic partner.
RAB-Microfluidics identified an opportunity to revolutionise petroleum testing and analysis services by making conventional laboratory procedures mobile, rapid and routine. RAB-Microfluidics engaged with OGIC and collaborated with the University of Aberdeen as its academic partner.
Rawwater partnered with the University of Aberdeen to determine creep behaviour of novel alloys for well plugging and abandonment.
Aubin identified an opportunity to transform Well P&A, by using chemical and material technology to create a rigless solution. Aubin approached OGIC and selected Heriot-Watt University as their academic partner.
Our case studies Flip Book is now published. The Flip Book includes numerous examples of companies collaborating with Scottish Universities, alongside OGIC support, to complete innovative projects.
