Tendeka’s Norwegian activity continues to surge
November 12, 2012
Tendeka has seen increased activity in Norway, following on from its recently announced frame agreement with Statoil.
The contract, secured with the Norwegian oil giant, is for the provision of sand screens and inflow control devices (ICDs) and is for an initial three-year period with the option of two further two-year extensions.
Tendeka’s products will be deployed on the Troll field, which contains approximately 40 per cent of the natural gas on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and is one of Norway’s largest oil fields, producing 400,000 barrels a day from three platforms north-west of Bergen.
Tendeka CEO Gary Smart said: “Working with Statoil has been a great opportunity for Tendeka.
“Our regional team in Norway and our sand control team have been tremendous in manufacturing and delivering these products to the highest standard, and we are looking forward to developing our relationship with Statoil in years to come.
“Norway is an important market for Tendeka, not only because of our relationship with Statoil but because of the number of smart well innovative projects in Norwegian waters which require industry leading products such as our wireless technologies and gauge installations.”
Tendeka is highlighting its sand screens and ICDs at the ONS 2012 exhibition and conference in Stavanger from 28th – 31st August, Hall H, stand 854. It will also be showcasing its 2.5” wireless gauge, which recently completed successful trials in the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Tendeka’s product line director for wireless technologies, Annabel Green, said: “Tendeka’s wireless technologies have benefited over the years from the continued Norwegian support of innovation, which allowed us to trial the wireless gauge in multiple fields. Exhibiting at ONS and supporting the Norwegian sector is of great importance to us.”
Tendeka recently unveiled its new UK headquarters in Aberdeenshire and announced the development of a high-tech research and development facility in Aberdeen. This investment is line with Tendeka’s plans to enhance its portfolio of products and its North Sea and international growth.
