NEW ORLEANS – Tendeka plans to launch its SigNet Wireless Intelligent Completion technology at the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition which opens today in New Orleans.
SigNet introduces an interval control valve and has downhole power generation capability to extend battery life, says Tendeka.
“Today’s intelligent completions must be linked back to the surface and to date this is generally achieved via multiple hydraulic lines, electric control line or a combination of the two,” says Ken Miller, Tendeka VP for North and South America. “Wireless solutions open up new applications, providing solutions for multi-lateral wells, existing wellbores and open-hole sections. Our SigNetWireless Intelligent Completion Technology, which can be retrofitted to existing well architecture, is an innovative, cable free combination of measurement, inflow control and downhole power generation which truly enables direct in-lateral flow control for the first time.”
