Tendeka has demonstrated its PulseEight wireless technology in partnership with the Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) in the North Sea.
In partnership with OGTC, Tendeka completed phase one of a project to install and test PulseEight as an insert safety valve. The device detected a number of simulated emergency events and reacted as planned.
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.”
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.”
