  • Leading Weatherford Into The Next Era of Oilfield Services

    Aug 07, 2017

    The oil and gas industry of today is not the same as it was 10 years ago, five years ago, or even one year ago. From an engineering perspective, the push into deepwater and high-pressure, high-temperature fields has introduced new technical challenges. Additionally, changes in the supply-demand equation have driven the industry to look at risk and rewards differently, and to re-examine the balance between short-term gains and longer-term strategic objectives.

  • Extreme Environment LWD System Saves Millions In Rig Time

    Jul 27, 2017

    Too often when drilling in high-temperature offshore fields, traditional LWD tools experience failures. As a result, operators might employ extensive temperature- mitigation measures, incur additional operating time and expense or face the prospect of receiving no data at all. A new technology from Weatherford combats this problem by enabling reliable formation data acquisition while drilling in hostile environments.

  • Sand control technology advancements improve the cost and efficiency of completions

    Jul 17, 2017

    The days of completing mostly low-deviation wells using cased-hole gravel packs—either single-zone gravel packs or dual-zone stacked gravel packs—are long over. Operators now demand optimal production over an extended productive lifecycle. This demand has led to the development of more complex reservoirs: more remote locations; greater depths, including deep and ultra-deep water; higher deviations; and longer laterals and open holes for increased reservoir contact.
