Technologies

Our technologies encompass stand-alone innovative completion products that can be combined to form systems for use in conventional and unconventional wells.

FloCheck Passive Inflow Control Completions

Tendeka's passive inflow control completions promote uniform production or injection along the entire length of a horizontal well.

FloCheck™ passive inflow control completions combine passive ICDs with the Tendeka range of mechanical or swellable packers to provide an inflow profile to meet client requirements. Our FloMatik™ ICDs even out the inflow profile, delivering better coning control and delayed water or gas breakthrough. Acid stimulation during the production or injection life of the well can also be regulated in this way.

Our passive inflow control completions feature regularly spaced FloMatik ICDs throughout the completion liner adjacent to the production reservoir. These can either be run on every joint, or combined with blank joints to provide the desired well compartmentalization.


Inflow Control

Long horizontal wells can increase productivity and recovery of oil by increasing reservoir contact, however, uneven production due to reservoir heterogeneity, fractures or frictional pressure losses along the length of the horizontal bore can lead to early water or gas breakthrough in these wells.  

Inflow Control Devices (ICDs) create a more even inflow by producing an additional pressure drop at inflow points along the reservoir.  Similarly, ICD are used in water injection applications to promote an even outflow of water to improve sweep efficiency.

Deployed as part of the lower completion using zone isolation packers to divide the reservoir into inflow compartment, the ICD can be integrated with sand control screens for soft formations, or within short subs for harder formations.

Tendeka has advanced ICD technology to increase the functionality of these devices to allow circulation during deployment, prevent cross flow and autonomously choke back unwanted water and gas production once break-through occurs.

Benefits

  • Delays water and gas breakthrough in oil producing wells by creating an even inflow along the wellbore.
  • Can autonomously reduce water and gas production once breakthrough occurs
  • Increased sweep efficiency in water injection wells by ensuring an even outflow
  • Increased sand control reliability by reducing annular flow velocities
  • Eliminating the requirement for washpipe for circulation.
  • Prevents cross-flow in multi-layer oil and gas wells
  • Reduced fines production in water injection by preventing backflow

Sand Control

Tendeka’s portfolio of specialized sand control technologies keeps formation sand in place and delivers an evenly distributed flow profile.

Our ultra-robust systems have been developed to offer a high standard of sand retention and fines tolerance. Independent tests show that Tendeka screens extend equipment life, maintain productivity and maximize yield.

Applications

  • Sand and conformance control
  • Unconsolidated formations
  • Horizontal completions
  • Open-hole packer completions
  • Heavy oil and HPHT wells
  • Production and injector wells

Features and Benefits

  • Wide range of screen sizes plus mesh choices to meet your well specifications
  • Combined ICD and sand screen completions, reducing turbulent flow to limit fines migration
  • Screen quality exceeds ISO standards, offering high strength combined with superior corrosion and plugging-resistance

Zonal Isolation

Whether you seek long-term compartmentalization of producing zones, or pressure sealing during fracturing operations, look to Tendeka to meet all your zonal isolation demands.

Benefits

  • High pressure annular isolation in open-hole multistage fracturing to ensure fluid diversion.
  • Wellbore compartmentalisation for optimal performance of inflow control completions
  • Effective annular isolation in multi-horizontal wells to enable effective interval control and zonal shut-off
  • Isolation of formations within the reservoir to eliminate problem zones
  • Provides annular barrier to isolate the reservoir from the well annulus as cement integrity assurance or in side-tracked wells
