Tendeka appoints new Production Enhancement Manager
Independent global completions service company Tendeka has appointed a new product line manager to drive its production enhancement offering around the world.
Dr Li Jiang will be responsible for bringing new products to market to bolster Tendeka’s Production Enhancement portfolio, generating revenue through fluid technologies that complement Tendeka’s existing tools portfolio. He will also provide technical support on current products and support the chemical additives supply chain for the company’s global customers.
Dr Jiang joins Tendeka from Hexion where he was performance additives manager and previously worked as a principal scientist and engineering manager at Schlumberger. Across his career in oil and gas, he has led the commercialisation of several high-profile products in reservoir completion, drilling and downhole monitoring.
Dr. Jiang, who will be based in Houston, said: “Tendeka has achieved outstanding success through its completions tool portfolio. We now have the exciting opportunity to strengthen an already thriving product line and to enhance our customers’ productivity and profitability. I hope my experience in new product development and commercialisation can add significant value to the company going forward.
“The oil industry is under unprecedented pressure from weakening demand amid the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the emergence of renewable energy sources. However, I am a believer in Tendeka’s vision to safely and sustainably optimise every drop of energy produced from the reservoir as oil and gas continues to play a key role in the future energy mix.”
Tendeka’s global production enhancement product line provides E&P, saltwater disposal and upstream service companies around the world with innovative and specialty fracturing, acidising, enhanced oil recovery (EOR), and flow assurance chemicals that are designed to address challenges in all reservoir types.
Headquartered in Aberdeen, UK, the company’s subsurface engineering, advanced completions and production enhancement teams, solve complex challenges with unique, cost-effective solutions that are a fusion of innovative tools and advanced chemistries.
Brad Baker, CEO of Tendeka added: “There continues to be significant opportunities in the current low commodity price market with operators more likely to opt for financially favourable production enhancement solutions over the logistical, technical and environmental issues associated with drilling new wells.
“In this area, advanced material-based fluids chemistry and engineering can make critical impacts. Li has a wealth of experience in bringing technology to the market and he will be a major asset in supporting our clients around the world.”
