With funding support from the Oil & Gas Technology Centre, Tendeka installed a PulseEight downhole device and a newly developed PulseEight surface system with OMV Group in Austria. During the installation, various operations were undertaken to test the downhole device and prove the surface decoding system, said the company.

John Hunter, emergent technology director of Tendeka, said, “We demonstrated accurate two-way wireless communication in a flowing gas well and proved that the data and results could be shared over the cloud to anyone connected.”

“The technology will continue to be trialled and tested at the site over the next few months as we explore commercial opportunities. Our team will also be developing the technology for use in other new and emergent products,” Hunter added.

“In the oil and gas industry, early stage installations are hard to come by in live wells. We appreciate the continued support from both OMV Group and the Oil & Gas Technology Centre for recognising the potential of this important technology. This trial has allowed us to demonstrate the full capabilities of PulseEight as the sector’s first cloud connected wireless intelligent completion system,” noted Brad Baker, CEO of Tendeka.

Tendeka’s PulseEight system uses pressure pulse telemetry, aiming to channel wireless communication between a well’s downhole monitoring and control system and the wellhead. Commissioned as either a standalone surface unit with cloud data management or embedded on existing well control systems, PulseEight Surface focuses on allowing the user to see real-time the data transmitted from the reservoir. The system autonomously measures surface choke changes and confirms that the surface to device pulse sequence is correct.
