Tendeka celebrates win at Offshore Achievement Awards
March 21, 2014
Tendeka, the provider of completions and reservoir monitoring products and services to the upstream oil and gas industry, is celebrating after winning the Innovator award at last night’s (Thursday 20 April) Offshore Achievement Awards held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC).
Tendeka’s FloSure™ Autonomous Inflow Control Device (AICD) scooped the prize for innovation, proving it can help operators overcome the technological challenges of early water and gas breakthrough.
FloSure™ AICDs behave like passive ICDs before water/gas breakthrough, giving a predetermined pressure drop between the reservoir and the completion liner. However, after water or gas breakthrough the device preferentially chokes unwanted produced fluids whilst promoting production of oil from the entire length of a horizontal well drilled in a reservoir. There are currently over 5,000 FloSureTM AICD units successfully installed worldwide.
Gary Smart, CEO of Tendeka, said: “Winning an Offshore Achievement Award is an outstanding accomplishment for Tendeka. We pride ourselves on innovation, the AICD being collaboration between a leading E&P and Tendeka. We are very proud to be recognised by the industry in this field as we continue to develop cutting edge technologies and assist operational projects worldwide.”
Tendeka’s focus on the monitoring, modelling and control of near-wellbore multiphase flow, provides operators with more effective ways to manage reservoir performance, enhance production and increase overall recovery.
