Tendeka were proud to support Aberdeen FC and Aberdeen FC Community Trust’s ‘Fair Play for All’ event earlier this month. Ninety six children from schools across Aberdeen City and Shire benefitted from a unique day of engaging education with a football focus, this year the event was extended to a second, more relaxed day.

The programme was designed with opportunities to be active, whilst learning life skills; AFCCT providing professional football coaching, MINDSET mental health empowerment and STEM robotic football activities. There were also first aid and hazard perception workshops, rounding off the life skill opportunities presented to the children.

Fair Play for All – energising the community was born from AFC Women’s partners – Boskalis, GAC and ourselves. Members of our team volunteered throughout the event and were blown away by the enthusiasm of the youngsters.

We are incredibly proud to support this event, which makes a meaningful difference to Aberdeen communities.

Tendeka are delighted to share that we won the Best Project Outcome category at the OWI Global Awards. We took the top spot for our Filtrex Conformable Sand Screen which restored sand-free production in a three well campaign in Indonesia.

Tendeka’s Filtrex remedial sand control system is designed to address the issue of sand failure in existing wells. A simple intervention based system, it provides the flexibility to be installed thru-tubing and can combine sand clean-out as part of the installation process.

The unique filter mechanism employed by Filtrex is a multi-layer open cell matrix polymer (OCMP), with a range of sizes to cover a broad range of applications. The OCMP is run in hole compressed within a sleeve and is deployed along with an integral anchor system. Once set, the filter media can expand by up to 75% to conform with the wellbore ID.
Filtrex is designed to retain sand whilst allowing fluid flow through the filter mechanism with little impact. Once installed, the tool requires no further intervention but can be easily retrieved at a later date if desired.
