Tendeka has successfully completed the first installation of an optical reservoir monitoring system in an offshore platform well for a major operator in West Africa.
The monitoring solution consisted of Tendeka’s Sentinel distributed temperature sensing (DTS) system combined with four SmartCell optical pressure and temperature gauges. When integrated with DTS, the gauges provide a complete real-time pressure and temperature profile of the reservoir, enabling the operator to optimize well performance. The pressure gauges enable more accurate interpretation of the inflow profile and analysis of phase contributions along the horizontal interval increasing efficiency and passing on significant cost savings.
Data is continuously available in real-time providing enhanced understanding of flow contribution.
