Tendeka trials industry-first wireless completions technology

Tendeka has carried out a successful field trial of an industry-first wireless intelligent completions system.

Pulse Eight is a cloud-connected system which uses pulse telemetry to allow the user to see in real-time the data being transmitted from the reservoir.

The technology provides wireless communication between a well’s downhole monitoring system and the wellhead.

Tendeka says it will provide operators with more options to extend the life of existing assets and develop new fields more effectively.

With funding from the Oil and Gas Technology Centre, the firm installed a PulseEight downhole device and a surface system in Austria last month,

John Hunter, Tendeka’s emergent technology Director, said: “Our initial two-week trial was a complete success and we actually overachieved what we planned to do. We demonstrated accurate two-way wireless communication in a flowing gas well and proved that the data and results could be shared over the cloud to anyone connected.

“The technology will continue to be trialled and tested at the site over the next few months as we explore commercial opportunities. Our team will also be developing the technology for use in other new and emergent products.”

CEO Brad Baker added: “In the oil and gas industry, early stage installations are hard to come by in live wells.

“We appreciate the continued support from both OMV Group and the Oil & Gas Technology Centre for recognising the potential of this important technology. This trial has allowed us to demonstrate the full capabilities of PulseEight as the sector’s first cloud connected wireless intelligent completion system.

“The impact on the industry of fully wireless data and control is significant and will allow more optimised well planning and ultimately greater recovery.”
