We are delighted to see Tendeka continues to feature in Oil & Gas Middle East’s Top 30 Oilfield Services Companies.  The 2020 listing has now been published online, with OGME’s Carla Sertin stating:

“In times of crisis, the services segment is particularly hard-hit as projects are cancelled, delayed, or reduced in scope. Many companies on this list have seen dramatic drops in revenue compared to last year, but they have still managed to impress with innovative solutions and ways of continuing business through and beyond the coronavirus pandemic.”

Tendeka COO Scott Watters added:  “Being included in the top 30 once again is great recognition to the efforts by everyone in the region and support team in the UK, with continued efforts to consolidate our presence in key GCC markets, and expand in to Saudi Arabia and other countries in the Middle East. This recognition demonstrates that Tendeka is seen as a valued solutions provider to the challenges across the region, especially during these challenging times with key technologies such as FloSure, FloFuse and PulseEight.”

Tendeka, the provider of completions systems and services to the upstream oil and gas industry, has announced two significant contracts for its zonal isolation and inflow control technology in the Middle East.

Following a highly successful initial contract period, Tendeka has been re-awarded the contract to supply PDO with swellable solutions for all fields in Oman. The $5m contract will span 5 years, with an optional two-year extension. Tendeka has been present in Oman since 2002 and has deployed over 4000 of its Swellfix packers for PDO since that time. The award win demonstrates Tendeka’s strength of position in the zonal isolation market for the Middle East and is testament to the consistent service and quality of its swellable technology.

In a separate award, and following work on previous contracts including fibre optic monitoring and both swellable and mechanical zonal isolation solutions, Tendeka will provide a major operator with inflow control device (ICD) completions and swellable packers in a deal worth up to $5m. The four-year contract will mark the first ICD installations for the major operator and will commence with the installation of three trial wells.

Derek Taylor, Tendeka’s Vice President for EMEAR, said: “The Middle East has always been a key region for Tendeka and the award of two major contracts builds on our previous successes here. In both cases our solutions will provide significant value to our clients and we look forward to working closely with them in the coming year to fully realise that value.”

Tendeka has a comprehensive portfolio of open-hole completion technologies, which provide integrated solutions for inflow assurance, optimisation and control. These best in class technologies include liner hangers, a range of ICDs, metal mesh or wire wrap screens for sand or debris control, a multiple zonal isolation solutions, and integrated monitoring systems, with over 40,000 installed around the globe.

Tendeka’s full range of reservoir completion technologies can be deployed to solve issues in unconsolidated formations, carbonate reservoirs, tight and shale formations, heavy oil and high pressure high temperature environments, multi-horizon and multi-lateral wells, and production and injector applications.

Tendeka has secured a three-year contract for the supply of down-hole inflow control devices (ICDs) in the Middle East.  The company has a proven track record for the provision of completions and reservoir monitoring products, systems and services to the upstream oil and gas industry.  This contract is Tendeka’s largest to date for the installation of their proprietary ICD technology in the Middle East.

The award, which was made by a major operator in the Middle East and North Africa, will see Tendeka install approximately 30 ICDs in 12 wells.  The initial contract is for three years with a further optional one-year extension.

Derren Simpson, Tendeka’s vice president for Middle East North Africa said: “Installing ICDs in a well results in delayed water breakthrough because the inflow profile is evened out; this helps operators to maximise the well’s productivity and recovery factor.  The contract award highlights our commitment to providing solutions that respond to the oil and gas industry’s needs while maintaining productivity and maximising yield.

“Our robust solutions help operators overcome the technological challenges they are facing.  In addition we are constantly developing our offering to deliver the technology needed by the industry.

“As an example, we recently enhanced our wireless offering with the launch of the SigNet Wireless Intelligent Completion solution. SigNet was developed in response to market demand and features an interval control valve (ICV) as well as downhole power generation capability that results in extended battery life.  SigNet retains the proven monitoring capability of Tendeka’s Wireless PT Gauge.

“This latest contract award adds to our recent wins in the Middle East,” commented Derren.  “Earlier this year we secured a contract for the provision of swellable packers for up to 50 wells in Qatar along with contracts to provide our FloQuest rapid data visualisation and interpretation software for an operator in Qatar and Oman.  FloQuest is used to assist downhole visualisation in determining future drilling interventions.”

Derren concluded, “As our product line and service offering continue to develop it’s important we maintain our focus on health and safety; our people are fundamental to the continued growth of the company.  We are committed to enhancing the occupational health and safety of our employees and recently achieved the significant milestone of 1,600 days Lost Time Incident (LTI) free.”
