Tendeka secures contract to provide swell packers in Doha
March 25, 2013
A three-year contract to provide swellable packers for up to 50 wells in Qatar has been secured by Tendeka.
The scope of work will see Tendeka supply packers to one of the major international independent oil and gas companies. The packers will be used to achieve zonal isolation at a field in Qatar.
The initial contract term is three years with two further optional one-year extensions. The contract award compliments existing long term agreements for Tendeka’s swellable products in the Middle East and builds on its successes to date. It further highlights the company’s commitment to providing innovative and high performance products to the operators in the region.
Derren Simpson, Tendeka’s vice president for Middle East North Africa said: “Swellable packers are a cost effective way of achieving zonal isolation in well. They can be deployed without additional trips in hole and once in situ they swell to seal the available space following liquid contact.
“This latest contract win further cements Tendeka’s presence in the Middle East. Tendeka’s MENA base is in Dubai and several projects have already been delivered for Middle East based operators. As well as winning a three-year contract, with options to extend for a further two years, with a major international oil and gas company in Qatar for open hole isolation packers, Tendeka is also providing its FloQuest rapid data visualisation and interpretation software for an operator in Qatar and Oman. FloQuest will assist down hole visualisation in determining future drilling interventions. “
In addition, Tendeka has secured contracts for the use of its innovative fibre optic DTS (distributed temperature sensing) technology in a number of wells in the UAE and Qatar, while its patented swellable packers range has been deployed successfully on several projects in Oman and Iraq.
Simpson concluded: “Tendeka prides itself on supplying products and service which are second to none. Our value added approach ensures operators are able to reap maximum benefit from their wells.”
