Independent global completions service company Tendeka has demonstrated a further capability of its PulseEight wireless technology with a major North Sea operator.

In partnership with the Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC), the team has successfully completed phase one of a project to install and test PulseEight as an insert safety valve. The device successfully detected a number of simulated emergency events and reacted as planned. Further development is ongoing.

The North Sea trial follows a successful field test with OMV Group in Austria earlier this year. The OGTC has provided funding support for both projects.

Testing included operations in a live producing offshore well. The operator believes the technology could unlock more than £5million savings per well, per year, for the North Sea, as well as providing increased capability for the operator.

Tendeka Advanced Completions Director Paul Lynch said: “PulseEight’s proven communication technology, combined with the intelligent autonomous downhole component, has already been demonstrated to provide value to the global oil and gas industry. It is great to see the recognition of the system’s versatility for use in the more diverse application of this field trial.”

Tendeka CEO Brad Baker added: “We’re grateful to the support of the operator and again the Technology Centre for helping us demonstrate further capabilities of this game-changing wireless completions system. As a company, we are laser focused on bringing unique value to our industry through advanced completions. We are always encouraged when the industry embraces pioneering innovation. To secure two field trials in such a short space of time shows the real appetite for PulseEight.”

Malcolm Banks, Well Construction Solution Centre Manager for the Oil & Gas Technology Centre, said: “We’re pleased with the progress of this second field trial of the PulseEight system and it’s great to see it being deployed in a live North Sea well. If it proves successful, it could pave the way for wider adoption of technology that has the potential to change the way we manage wells. This will improve productivity and save the industry millions of pounds.”

Tendeka’s PulseEight system uses unique pressure pulse telemetry to channel wireless communication between a well’s downhole monitoring and control system and the wellhead. The downhole device is also able to operate autonomously providing a true intelligent solution, enabling well data to be transmitted to any location in the world in real-time.
