In January 2021, under the terms of a new contract with Oklas Technologies, TEN fab, a contract manufacturer of mechatronics, robotics and medical equipment (part of the TechnoSpark Group of Companies of the Rusnano Group’s Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs) produced a batch of innovative devices to be used for discharging gas from an oil-well pump.
As a contractor TEN fab manufactured 8 turnkey gas discharge devices to be delivered to the Tomskneft-VNK and Orenburgneft wells for testing. Developed by Oklas Technologies, the device has an original design with internal labyrinth passages and a ball valve, and it the first of its kind in the world. It is designed to be applied in wells with high gas oil ratio, and facilitates the pump restart.
“Only reliable and durable solutions take root in the oil production: at a depth of the well, regular maintenance and equipment repair is impossible to be carried out, so each breakdown causes the lifting of the entire assembly. As a result, we have the well outage and losses in oil production”, said Vyacheslav Leonov, Oklas Technologies Technical Director. “For our device to operate in a smooth and effective way, strict quality control is required. It is necessary to have all the parts manufactured and assembled with high accuracy and strictly in accordance with the technical documentation, as well as to select reliable suppliers of high-quality components. All this is extremely difficult to be achieved in the context of pilot production with technical processes that are not properly adjusted.”
We have long, fruitfully, and successfully cooperated with TEN fab. Successful testing of our innovative products at oil wells serves to prove our right choice. That is why we have entrusted the production of new devices to this company and we are planning to continue cooperation in the future.
Vyacheslav Leonov, Oklas Technologies Chief Technical Director
Oklas Technologies, a resident of Skolkovo, is engaged in the development of innovative equipment for oil and gas production. TEN fab has been cooperating with Oklas Technologies since 2019 and has previously manufactured Turbostop devices and leak-proof UCV valves to be used at oil wells for this company.
TEN fab is a part of TEN Group, which incorporates TechnoSpark contract businesses, providing a full range of modern contract manufacturing: engineering, industrial design, additive and composite production, assembly operation.
