Tendeka unveils Mena expansion plans
Abu Dhabi, November 12, 2012
Tendeka, a reservoir monitoring solutions provider to the upstream oil and gas industry, has announced plans to build on its current success with increased activity in the Mena region.
At the company’s Mena base in Dubai, several projects for Middle East-based operators in the past year have been undertaken and a healthy order book for 2013 is in place, it said in a statement.
Tendeka recently won a three-year contract, with options to extend for a further two years, with a major international oil and gas company in Qatar, providing Open Hole Isolation Packers.
Tendeka is also providing its FloQuest software for a major oil and gas company in Qatar and Oman. The FloQuest technology will help visualise what is happening downhole and help to devise future drilling interventions based on the results.
In addition, Tendeka has secured contracts for the use of its innovative fibre optic DTS (distributed temperature sensing) in a number of wells in the UAE and Qatar, while its patented swellable packers range has been deployed successfully on several projects Oman and Iraq, said Derren Simpson, Tendeka’s vice president for Mena.
After many contract successes, Tendeka has appointed a new business development manager for GCC South to assist its growth in the region. Ashraf Al Ansari will join the team, bringing extensive experience in reservoir engineering and operations management, Simpson added.
The company has also added to its team an agent with responsibilities for Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iraq, while the recruitment of another agent is planned for Algeria.
“The last year, following on from the Arab Spring, has been one of considerable rebuilding and growth for us. However, we have established ourselves as a quality, customer-focused service company in the region,” Simpson said.
“We see excellent opportunities for Tendeka in the Middle East going forward. We have received a number of inquiries from several companies about our DTS systems while we have identified many opportunities for our inflow control devices and sand screens.”
Tendeka is highlighting its sand screens and inflow control devices the ongoing Adipec 2012 exhibition and conference in Abu Dhabi from 11 – 14 November.
The company will also be showcasing its 2.5” wireless gauge and its wide range of swellable packers.
Simpson added: “The Middle East is a key market for us and Adipec, as the leading oil and gas exhibition and conference in this region, presents the perfect platform to showcase our products and capabilities.
“We have established a strong reputation here by undertaking successful projects in several countries, and we expect to generate much more activity in the Middle East in the future.” – TradeArabia News Service
