Global completions service company Tendeka will provide its inflow control technology to help increase production from Malaysian assets of an independent operator.

The 3-year contract will see Tendeka will supply its FloSure Autonomous Inflow Control Devices (AICDs) to two fields offshore Sabah, Malaysia.

Keith Parrott, Tendeka’s South East Asia area manager says, “Early water and gas breakthrough is challenging for oil producers. Our technology can choke back unwanted water from being produced to surface and enabling higher oil production to be maintained for longer. Adopting best practice modelling techniques and installation practices from previous work is allowing us to optimise designs and save time in completing wells, resulting in significant cost savings for clients.”

“This is our second major win in Malaysia over the last couple of months, and our third in south east Asia. With the current challenges facing all companies now, these contracts are testament to the hard work of our experienced team and the confidence our clients have in Tendeka and our partners,” adds Parrott.

The work was awarded through Vantage Energy Group, Tendeka’s partner in the region. The contract also has the option of a 1-year extension.

“We are extremely pleased and humbled at the opportunity given to us to able to assist Tendeka to deliver technology-based solutions to optimise production contribution,” says Muhammad Ishamuddin Omar, Vantage Energy Group’s Executive Vice President for Completions.

“In such challenging times, it is extremely crucial that the understanding of technology has to be relevant in achieving objectives for our clients and our partner has exactly that. We are thankful of the special relationship and partnership we have with Tendeka and we are hopeful that this will continue to be so in the future,” Omar continues.

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 effectively managing flow profiles 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.
