In response to the challenges of efficient water injection in fractured reservoirs, impartial international completions service firm Tendeka has launched a brand new expertise to optimize oil manufacturing.
As an addition to their intensive vary of superior influx management expertise, FloFuse can improve oil restoration by bettering injected water conformance in fractured reservoirs or by making certain efficient placement of matrix stimulation acids.
When put in throughout a segmented wellbore, FloFuse autonomously chokes again injection into thief zones or massive fractures that dominate the outflow profile and ensures efficient injection into the rock matrix or fracture construction. This prevents early water breakthrough into manufacturing wells, thereby, growing whole oil restoration and decreasing water manufacturing.
By triggering at a pre-determined flowrate, it reduces the outflow space within the completion compartment. Furthermore, the dynamic and reversible operation of the valve makes it appropriate for functions the place the permeability contrasts change over time, equivalent to in thermally fractured water injection wells and the place matrix stimulation is used to enhance close to wellbore permeability.
Unlike standard water flood administration applied sciences, FloFuse units are simple to run in horizontal wells and excessive charge environments and have an extended life expectancy with much less want for upkeep.
Annabel Green, chief expertise officer with Tendeka, stated: “The advantages of passive injection management units (ICDs) in injection wells have been nicely confirmed however until the fractures are recognized previous to putting in the completion gadget, it has restricted capability to successfully distribute outflow.
“We have been in a position to leverage our intensive expertise in superior influx management expertise to resolve this very actual business downside. FloFuse has carried out extraordinarily nicely in simulated operations and static nicely modelling and we’re in discussions with a number of operators on their functions for 2019.”
“As a world specialist in superior completions and manufacturing optimization options, 2018 has been a momentous 12 months for expertise growth and deployment,” added Brad Baker, CEO with Tendeka.

“In simply 12 months, the launch of a brand new, demand-led expertise, in addition to suite of options for the unconventional sector, is testomony to our crew of devoted and skilled engineers and employees who’re dedicated to creating bespoke options to resolve probably the most complicated nicely challenges that our shoppers face.”
