The turn of the year means boardroom leaders are planning – as well as playing soothsayer – for what’s next in 2020 and beyond.
To address the issue of sand control failure in wells, independent global completions service company Tendeka, has launched a new cost-effective single trip sand control solution.
Tendeka has developed a new polymer treatment to increase recovery from shale reservoirs by 250%.
I was born in 1976. It was a decade that was not only phenomenal but also transformational for the oil and gas industry.
Earlier this year, Tendeka secured the world’s largest sand and inflow control contract for the Troll field on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS).
Good data analysis can have a direct impact on operational efficiencies and the potential reduction in operating costs as well as improved production and hydrocarbon recovery.
Equinor has signed three-year contracts with Tendeka and Baker Hughes Norge for providing sand screen services worth £92.5 million.
Transition Extreme in Aberdeen said yesterday it was Louise Andrew’s “commitment to sport for change” that made her the standout candidate for the role of chairperson.
With North Sea oil and gas production reaching its highest point in the last seven years, it is no surprise that the last year has been Tendeka’s strongest in the UK to date.
In these pages we’ve often focused on “getting smarter with technology”, but we also need to get smarter with people.
Like the temperature over the past three months, we have seen a dramatic plunge in the oil price index. So much so, it has left many asking if the oil and gas industry is suffering from a slight touch of winter flu, or, as others perceive, the start of a life-threatening illness.
Aberdeen-based technology specialist Tendeka has announced a multi-million pound contract win in the Middle East.
In last year’s end of year opinion piece for Energy Voice, I talked about the realignment of the oil and gas industry. I opined that the sector is not in a cycle as we know it, but rather, in a shift of mentality to one that is nimbler, more innovative in attitude with plenty of upside potential.
Digital age, artificial intelligence and machine learning are topics that have been discussed at length by the oil and gas industry.
Oil and gas service firm Tendeka has announced it will add a technical director to its roster at its Westhill base.
Like me, you will no doubt be overwhelmed by what seems like a torrent of new, self-proposed technology developments hitting the oil and gas market. But how many really deliver the sought after solutions to age old problems?
Thirty years on as we remember the Piper Alpha disaster and the 167 lives that were lost, it is a poignant time to recognise the positive safety changes in the years since and how these principles need to be passed from one generation to the next.
Can you remember life without your smart phone? Do you remember the days when you had to get behind a desk, log in and dial up to access the wealth of information on the internet?

For Annabel Green, it is events such as a 20-year reunion with former colleagues or seeing young people in the bars of Aberdeen whom she can remember being carried into the office by their proud new parents, that shows the reality of time passing.
Is 2018 the year of the UK North Sea revival? With Brent crude surpassing the $71 a barrel threshold in January this year – the first time since 2014 – positivity is re-emerging. It seems almost daily I read of a new operator acquiring a field in the UK North Sea or an established player reinvesting, such as Shell giving the go-ahead to redevelop the Penguins field, the largest investment in the North Sea in six years.
Oil and gas companies need to make their employees feel safe in order to cultivate innovation, according to Tendeka’s emergent technologies director.
Tendeka has carried out a successful field trial of an industry-first wireless intelligent completions system.
Everyone knows the oil and gas industry has gone through a few very tough years. The North Sea was particularly susceptible being so dependent on oil and gas, with almost 200,000 people losing their jobs since the downturn began in 2014. That’s 39% of those employed in the industry out of work.
It is going to be better. 2017 is the year of the recovery. Demand will finally out strip supply, rig counts will come back. All things we heard this time last year and all things we are hearing now as we head to the end of this year. What happened? More importantly, what will happen?
