Head Energy and Entech are collaborating on a new groundbreaking technology, that can save a lot of money and increase the oil and gas recovery rate for operators.

Bossa Nova™ is an intelligent completion system with unlimited zonal flow control. By better managing your reservoir you can reduce unnecessary water and gas production, improve recovery and prolong peak production. Bossa Nova provides the ability to control multiple choking ICV’s, with operational simplicity, reliability, and at low cost.

The technology is developed by Head Energy and Entech with Superior in the US as partner and with financial support from Innovation Norway.

– We are very pleased to be part of the GCE Ocean Technology cluster, who supported us with pre-project funding and advice in the early phase of this project. The innovation project has been successful so far, and we are currently looking for an operator to pilot the solution in the field, says Trond Erik Gundersen, Manager Director Head Energy Multicontrol.

Creativity and Close Cluster Collaboration

Creativity is a quality that is valued in Head Energy. - Often customers come to us with an idea, which we later develop and build, says Gundersen.

An example of this is the Arna company and fellow cluster member Entech Solutions, which has developed a well management concept called Bossa Nova.

– Our control system fits well with their solution and shows the strength of good cluster collaboration. According to Gundersen, this is a groundbreaking technology, which can save a lot of money for the operators and increase the recovery rate from wells.
