Acoustic Data awarded multi-million-dollar contract in Iraq for their SonicGauge Wireless Monitoring Systems

Acoustic Data, the global leader in multi-year wireless downhole data acquisition for the Oil & Gas and Underground Energy Storage industries, has announced a multi-million-dollar order from Iraq for their SonicGauge™ Wireless Monitoring Systems. The contract, awarded by a major oilfield service company, is a significant endorsement of Acoustic Data’s subsurface solutions, particularly for interference observation monitoring, production optimisation and well testing.

Jesse Tolley, Chief Commercial Officer, remarked on the contract’s significance: “The project represents a major commercial milestone for Acoustic Data in the Middle East. Our SonicGauge technology will be deployed by slickline across a substantial number of assets to provide real-time data acquisition for a multi-year duration. In addition, the SonicSync™ will allow the operator to execute high-frequency well-test programs on command and without intervention—representing unparalleled capability in the industry.”

Mr Tolley added: “While our engineering team has primarily focused on downhole data acquisition via wireless communication, we will be releasing new command-driven technologies for completions, drill stem testing and production well testing in 2024. Most of which are destined to be deployed in MENA and South-East Asia in the first instance.”
