Tendeka Secures AICD Supply Agreement

Tendeka, experienced designers and manufacturers of completions systems, have secured a two-year contract with Zonton (Beijing) Energy Technology which will see them supply autonomous inflow control devices (AICDs) in China. These will help monitor and control the wells across Beijing oilfield with regards to fluid production.

Their client Zonton are involved in integrated oilfield services, and are focussed mostly on completion tools and production logging to enhance productivity. The collaboration with Tendeka will mean Zonton can provide it’s own clients with an AICD system that will significantly increase it’s yield from the oilfields.

Han Yanping, CEO and President of Zonton spoke about this new partnership:

“As Tendeka’s strategic partner for the AICD product in China, we focus on completion and rebuilding well technology in oil field services. Recognised as a top-level enterprise in China, Zonton has highly developed technology. China’s oil market is steadily increasing its oil production and it is expected that horizontal wells will be widely adopted. Our clients are planning to rig 3000 horizontal wells per year in China. Tendeka’s AICD technology is a major breakthrough in water control in horizontal wells, it will greatly enhance our water control ability in the later phase of oil production and we therefore expect horizontal wells will be widely utilised in China.”


Tendeka has been working hard to develop its AICD range to help operators overcome the technological challenges of early eater and gas breakthrough. The Tendeka FloSureTM inflow control device can be used to control injection from the entire length of a horizontal well drilled in an oil reservoir.

These FloSureTM AICDs are run as part of the open hole completions in horizontal wells and have been designed to control gas production in low to medium viscosity oil wells, and for water control in heavy oil wells.

In conventional production wells, fluids have a tendency to cone at the heel of the well, leading to early water or gas break. Evening our the inflow profile results in better coning control, thereby delaying the water or gas breakthrough and improving recovery, revenue and well life.

Tendeka currently operates throughout Asia Pacific but in particular China, Australia, Indonesia, New Zealand, Brunei and Malaysia. Gillian King (Tendeka’s VP for Asia Pacific) said:

“Existing contracts are held for DTS in coal bed methane wells, swellable packers for the hydraulic fracturing market and we recently won a contract for swellable packers with Petronas Malaysia. This agreement is very much in line with Tendeka’s philosophy of focussing on the near wellbore to enhance production through monitoring, modelling and control of the reservoir, this the use of our specialise lower completions equipment and services.”
