Well-SENSE Technology Bolsters US Presence


Downhole technology specialist, Well-SENSE, has continued its expansion in the US with the launch of a new business and a key appointment. 

The Aberdeen-based company has launched Well-SENSE Inc. as part of global expansion plans and to meet growing demand for its technology in the US. With a number of field trials in the pipeline over coming months, the Houston-based subsidiary will be headed up by Tad Bostick who becomes Western Hemisphere commercial director.

Prior to joining the company, Tad led Weatherford's global reservoir monitoring product line before becoming Vice President of the global production optimisation business unit.

Boasting over 35 years' industry experience, Tad began his career with Western Geophysical working in surface seismic exploration and borehole seismic logging. He has held various positions in field engineering, technical support and product management.

Throughout his career, Tad has been actively involved in innovative sensing and monitoring technologies for oil and gas applications worldwide. His new role will see him lead Well-SENSE Inc's operations and expand delivery of Well-SENSE's innovative FiberLine Intervention technology (FLI) in the region.

The award winning FLI system uses a bare fibre optic line for distributed sensing of temperature, pressure and acoustic data to profile a well over time. The system is disposable, compact and low cost to deploy and operate. Active-FLI components deliver enhanced capabilities such as HD cameras with real time video streaming and tractor driven access for deviated wells.

Craig Feherty, Well-SENSE CEO, said: “We're growing at a significant rate and the potential opportunities for our technology in the US are huge. We must make sure we have a team equipped to handle this growth, so Tad is a key appointment for us. As commercial director, he will be responsible for driving our business forward in the US, shaping innovation, and will be instrumental in initiating a recruitment drive for the subsidiary in the near future.”

Commenting on his appointment, Tad said: “I'm extremely pleased to join Well-SENSE. FLI is highly innovative; it offers an entirely new approach to well intervention and combines several innovative concepts in a single package.

“The dynamic team has propelled its state-of-the-art technology into the European market and I am very much looking forward to replicating this throughout the US, as we continue to achieve fantastic results with FLI.”

Well-SENSE, alongside ClearWELL Oilfield Solutions, Well-Centric, and the recently launched Pragma Well Technology, is part of the FrontRow Energy Technology Group.
