Independent global completions service company Tendeka has appointed Davor Saric as its new Technology Director to help deliver the company’s next generation of disruptive technologies.

Saric has more than 25 years’ experience in the oil and gas sector. He joins Tendeka having been involved in numerous global field developments and redevelopments as a Production Technology/Petroleum Engineering expert.

Saric, who is to be based at the company’s HQ in Westhill, Aberdeenshire, says, “I am very enthusiastic about joining the Tendeka team. We share the passion for innovation and technology which I believe is the key for creating and sustaining a solution driven environment in the oil and gas industry.”

“Tendeka has already proven this with a quick, focused and diligent approach to providing innovative technological solutions to some challenging issues, including PulseEight and Cascade3 to name just two. Such an approach is the way forward to ensure optimised energy recovery in these changing times. I’m looking forward to contributing to the growth and success of Tendeka,” he asserts.

Annabel Green, CTO of Tendeka, adds, “Davor’s perspective on production technology brings a systems approach to our technologies and solutions focussed on maximising the value to the operator. As we increase investment in innovation, Davor is the right person to drive this forward and I’m very pleased we were able to persuade him to join us.”

Phil Stone, Sub-Saharan Business Development Manager and Keith Parrott, Area Manager – South East Asia, have also recently joined the expanding company. Stone joins Tendeka with 14 years of offshore and operational experience, particularly focussed in smart well technologies and completions. While Parrott brings over 25 years’ service and extensive Completions experience within his region.

With more than a third of the workforce focused on research and development and specialist facilities including a materials lab and manufacturing plants, Tendeka also creates unique solutions to the complex well challenges operators face to create value and boost production.

Earlier this month, Tendeka won the Innovation Award at the The Press and Journal’s third annual Gold Awards for its wireless well completion technology, PulseEight.This uses unique pressure pulse telemetry to channel wireless communication between a well’s downhole monitoring and control system and the wellhead.
