CO-PRODUCED GEOTHERMAL NATURAL GAS HYBRID POWER PROJECT
Power Production Process Overview
FutEra developed and operates a hybrid power project that combines geothermal and natural gas energy in South Swan Hills. We're leading the way in new energy frontiers with our project.
- Up to 21 MW of heat and natural gas generation
- Measurable GHG reduction with associated revenues (carbon pricing)
- Accelerated build and efficient CAPEX from repurposing existing assets with no new footprint
- Total Project Cost: $50 MM.
The Swan Hills project considers GHG reduction a primary project outcome – using legacy infrastructure as an energy transition project
Reduces emissions by
Reduction in emissions equates to taking 6,700 cars off the road per year
Recycle – Incremental resource recovery from high water cut wells by harvesting heat
- Hot spot in Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin
- Security of heat supply validated by 60 years of reservoir and production data
- Surface wellhead temperatures can be in excess of 100 degrees Celsius
- Reservoir has over 1 billion barrels of fluid in place – project moves only 2-3% annually – virtually infinite instant hot water
Reuse – Recovering heat from existing produced fluid loop
- Synergistic project using existing facility site, numerous production and injection wells.
Reduce – Brownfield project advantaged by existing operations
- Large existing facility will eliminate the need for a new site – no new footprint
