Partnership to streamline data flow for oil & gas reservoir monitoring
July 15, 2020
Tendeka, an independent global completions service company, has joined the OSIsoft EcoSphere, a collection of more than 300 industrial leaders that provide products, applications, and services for the PI System.
The Aberdeen-headquartered company will provide downhole monitoring, analysis and modelling products to support customers in their digital transformation and integration strategies. These new data sources that Tendeka is enabling will bolster the value of the existing real-time information that oil and gas customers are currently storing in their PI Systems. The PI System enables customers to cleanse, analyse and visualise this data so they can discover actionable insights in real time.
“Today, oil and gas producers are being bombarded with an ever-increasing volume of digital data from fibre optic systems to IoT sensors and devices,” said Andy Nelson, senior software engineer with Tendeka (pictured). “More of this information is being processed in the field as edge-analytics comes into play. In the downhole environment this edge decision making is affording the producers the ability to start optimising their assets in a real-time manner.”
To help producers accomplish real-time optimisation and production efficiency, Tendeka provides a family of industry-leading hardware and software solutions that include inflow control; monitoring; production analysis and modelling; in addition to cutting-edge downhole wireless communication.
The partnership will enable OSIsoft’s PI System customers, which include thousands of industrial and oil and gas producers worldwide, to deploy sophisticated solutions across their downhole operational environments and take advantage of constantly evolving digital oilfield technologies.
“We realise the incredible benefits that collaboration with agile, like-minded companies can bring to our customers’ growth ambitions and to our own business development. Integration with third-party systems, IoT devices and platforms like the OSIsoft PI System is integral to overcome the operational challenges faced in today’s industry and accelerate our software offering to solve future issues. This successful integration solution will reinforce producers’ investment strategies,” added Annabel Green, chief technology officer with Tendeka.
“We are excited to be collaborating with Tendeka. Their innovative products and industry knowledge, combined with the PI System’s ability to collect data in real-time from a variety of assets, will be a game changer for oil and gas companies worldwide,” said Patti Sullivan, Director Cloud, Channel & Community North America at OSIsoft. “This solution will enable users to gain better and new levels of production analysis, while also setting their businesses up for success with future digital transformation initiatives.”
