Global completions specialist Tendeka has secured more than $30million USD worth of international contracts within the last quarter which will cover the next three years.
In addition to this unplanned revenue, the company has won long-term work with operators for its swellable packers and sand and inflow control technologies across key energy hubs, including the North Sea, Australasia and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
Tendeka is also delivering its first significant FloSure autonomous inflow control devices (AICDs) campaign in the United States, following a successful trial earlier this year.
Brad Baker, CEO at Tendeka, said: “To secure a number of multi-year, international agreements is always satisfying, but even more so with what the industry has been going through over the last 18 months. It has been an uncertain time for the sector, but due to the hard work of our team and our investment in technology, we have forged even stronger relationships with our global customers to enhance their operations.
“These wins for our sand and inflow control technology cements our position in the market as the industry leader of inflow control technology.”
To support the inflow control of wells, Tendeka has installed more than 50,000 FloSure AICDs around the world. The field adjustable FloSure AICDs preferentially chokes unwanted produced fluids whilst promoting production of oil from the entire length of the well, leading to greater recovery, lower water cuts and less gas production.
Deployed as part of the lower completion using zonal isolation packers to divide the reservoir into compartments, the AICD can be integrated with sand control screens for soft formations.
Tendeka’s SwellRight Swellable Packers provide a permanent packer solution suitable for many applications where a pressure seal or zonal isolation is required. SwellRight packers help reduce well construction costs, extend well life and improve well integrity.
Tendeka is also the developer of the PulseEight dynamic downhole reservoir management system, which is the world’s first re-deployable wireless completion with control, power, monitoring and communications already on-board.

Independent global completions service company Tendeka has more than doubled its work in the UK offshore sector over the past twelve months.
The growth in the UKCS has led the company to make a substantial capital investment in manufacturing facilities, expanding their use of local supply chain and in-house capabilities following the move to new headquarters in 2017.
Tendeka supplies a range of technologies to maximise production from reservoirs. The company’s purpose-built Vanguard House headquarters in Westhill includes a state-of-the art research & development elastomer laboratory with testing area. The adjacent workshop hosts facilities for testing pressure, temperature and load testing capacity of downhole equipment, water and gas flow loops, alongside a firmware and electronics R&D laboratory for intelligent technology development.
Brad Baker, CEO of Tendeka said: “As an Aberdeen-headquartered company, we are encouraged by the UK sector’s support of our technologies. The significant growth anticipated with our technologies meant it made sense to move our manufacturing. This not only creates job opportunities locally but gives us greater control over the process.
“In the last 18 months, we have placed significant focus on the UKCS and it has led to several new relationships with both the traditional operators and some of the new players in the region. They all share the same goals of optimising production and our tools can help them achieve that.”
A recent project saw Tendeka design and model the installation of its AICD (Autonomous Inflow Control Device) technology for a gas cap blowdown in the Central North Sea. The AICDs will be retrofitted into an existing well to choke back unwanted gas prolonging the ultimate life of the well, which will be the first of its kind globally.
Gillian King, Vice President of Europe, Russia, CIS & Africa at Tendeka added: “We’ve seen a huge uptick in operators interested in our other technologies, including our intelligent wireless system, PulseEight. In the UK, we’ve had multiple installations which has used the tool as a downhole safety system.
“Operators within the UKCS now seem more open to doing things differently to maximise profits. We see a much more positive and open approach to introducing new technology which has allowed these potentially game-changing technologies to be deployed faster than they typically would have been.
“With production on the rise in the UKCS and ambitious growth plans in line with Vision 2035, we have developed a strong technology pipeline for the year ahead and are optimistic about the continued growth within the North Sea.”
