Acoustic Data, a global leader in multi-year wireless downhole data acquisition for the oil & gas and underground energy storage industries, has won a multi-million-dollar order from a major oilfield service company in Iraq for its SonicGauge wireless monitoring systems 

Jesse Tolley, chief commercial officer, commented, "The project represents a major commercial milestone for Acoustic Data in the Middle East. Our SonicGauge technology will be deployed by slickline across a substantial number of assets to provide real-time data acquisition for a multi-year duration. In addition, the SonicSync will allow the operator to execute high-frequency well-test programmes on command and without intervention representing unparalleled capability in the industry."

"While our engineering team has primarily focused on downhole data acquisition via wireless communication, we will be releasing new command-driven technologies for completions, drill stem testing and production well testing in 2024, most of which are destined to be deployed in MENA and South-East Asia in the first instance."
