Independent global completions service company Tendeka has received a Letter of Intent (LoI) for a substantial multi-million-pound scope to supply sand-face completion equipment to Aker BP’s Norwegian assets.

Over the next 3 years, the existing frame agreement will see Tendeka deliver its sand screens and FloSure Autonomous Inflow Control Devices (AICDs) to Aker BP’s fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).

Measured in production, Aker BP is one of the largest independent oil companies in Europe and is the operator of the Valhall, Ula, Ivar Aasen, Alvheim and Skarv field hubs.

Karianne Amundsen, Tendeka’s Scandinavia Area Manager says, “Our fully interchangeable, field-adjustable, sand and inflow control solution is engineered for a wide range of applications and fits the different requirements Aker BP have across their assets.”

“Aker BP has been a great partner to collaborate with in the past and we look forward to working closely with the team over the coming years to enhance production across these key Norwegian fields,” continues Amundsen.

Brad Baker, CEO at Tendeka, says, “We are proud to have been selected to carry out this work with Aker BP. Our fanatic focus on reservoir recovery and unique production enhancement technology coupled with our dedication to constantly improve, invest and innovate on these technologies are allowing our customers to see real benefits on their assets.”

“This specific technology is recognised for delivering marked production enhancement around the globe on key iconic fields and several recent significant industry awards reinforces our reputation as the world leader in inflow control technology and sand management. We appreciate our strong working relationship with Aker BP and look forward to over delivering on their needs,” Baker adds.

Last year, Tendeka secured the sand and inflow control contract for Equinor’s Troll field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The 4-year exclusive contract will see the company deliver and install up to 100,000 metres annually of sand screens and FloSure AICDs for sand-face completion.

Tendeka’s completion products can be seamlessly combined to provide customers with solutions tailored to specific requirements, for both conventional and unconventional wells. The company’s focus on ensuring an evenly distributed flow profile and enhanced oil recovery has resulted in the creation of a specialised range of inflow control solutions.

Tendeka has installed more than 7,000 passive ICDs and more than 42,000 AICDs around the world. The field adjustable FloSure AICDs preferentially chokes unwanted produced fluids whilst promoting production of oil from the entire length of the well, leading to greater recovery, lower water cuts and less gas production.
