New Patent | Wireless Communication in a Side Pocket Mandrel

We are proud to announce another patent for our SonicGauge™ Wireless Monitoring System (with several more to come)! This innovation enables our multi-year acoustic telemetry technology—with duplex functionality embedded—to be installed in a custom side pocket mandrel for intelligent completions, enabling full wellbore access and the ability to pull and redeploy a system for battery replacements.

This represents another step forward in our product evolution and strengthens our commitment to leading the Oil & Gas, Underground Energy Storage and Carbon Capture Storage industries in subsurface downhole wireless communication.


The patented SonicGauge™ Wireless Monitoring System is a two-way (duplex) acoustic telemetry system designed for high-frequency downhole data acquisition during DST and Well Testing programs while also being able to provide multi-year life for applications, such as Reservoir and Artificial Lift Monitoring.

Uniquely, the technology has been proven to perform reliably during production, injection, and monitoring phases across the entire well lifecycle. There is no depth limitation, as SonicRepeater stations can boost the acoustic data packets to surface and acquire local data for gradient surveys and multi-zone monitoring. The downhole tools can be mounted on tubing or retrofitted by slickline, digital slickline and e-line.
