Tendeka, the provider of completions systems and services to the upstream oil and gas industry, has signed a two-year agreement with SapuraKencana Energy Peninsula Malaysia Inc. (SKE) for the exclusive application of Tendeka’s market-leading FloSure™ Autonomous Inflow Control Device (AICD) valves. The contract was awarded through Tendeka’s partner in Malaysia, Aemos.
The work will include modifying existing ICD screens to incorporate Tendeka’s AICD valves on the SKE-operated East Belumut oilfield. The field is located approximately 160 miles offshore Peninsula Malaysia.
Early water or gas breakthrough can result in lost recovery, lost revenues and reduced well life. Tendeka’s AICD, part of the company’s fully integrated sandface completions solution, self-adjusts to choke back zones where unwanted water or gas breakthrough has occurred to promote oil production.
More than 10 000 FloSure™ AICD valves have been installed to date globally in light and heavy oil wells, ensuring uniform production longevity and increasing production rates by up to 50% in comparison to passive inflow control technology.
Gillian King, Tendeka’s Vice President of APAC, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract, our first AICD technology in Malaysia. Detailed analysis of the field’s reservoir characteristics indicate it is a perfect application for our technology and the modelling shows significant productivity improvements. This will be the first deployment of AICD technology within SKE-operated assets. We look forward to working closely with SKE to install this innovative solution and to share the positive results with other clients within Malaysia”.
Tendeka has a proven record in the provision of completions and reservoir monitoring products, systems and services. Our robust solutions help operators overcome the technological challenges they are facing, as we work to continuously develop our offering to the oil and gas industry. Our focus is to improve returns and create value from our client’s wells by providing high quality completions and well services to significantly improve performance.
