OPI Downhole Energy Solutions

POWER NEEDED DOWNHOLE IN OIL AND GAS INDUSTRIES

As demand for oil and gas continues to grow and supplies are ever more difficult to access, the demand for and demand on bit positioning, formation evaluation and telemetry tools also increases. Today’s power solutions for these tools have limited reliability, availability and power magnitude.  The impacts of these limitations, including the cost of downtime for offshore rigs, the operating expense associated with batteries, and the inability to have real-time high-resolution formation data during drilling, is immense. An even greater opportunity exists in completed wells, where better power solutions are a key part of a suite of solutions required for truly “intelligent” wells.

OPI DOWNHOLE DELIVERS POWER AT POINT OF NEED

OPI Downhole Technologies’ iMEC™enabled vibration energy harvesting solutions overcome all three of these challenges.  Integrated into existing drilling and completions equipment, our highly scalable, highly flexible and inherently robust solutions transform drillstring vibration or hydrocarbon flow into a reliable source of electric power for downhole sensors and valves.

Having successfully demonstrated the requisite power density at high temperature, OPI Downhole Technologies is working with industry leading oilfield services companies to validate performance in the downhole environment.
