We help you get more from your completion budget.
Completion and stimulation-driven technologies make unconventional production possible, they also consume 70 percent of an average well budget. When working in unconventional plays, you need a partner that strives for greater job efficiency and continuously works to create new and more effective technologies.
Well economics and field-proven experience in every major shale play drive our collaborative completion solutions. From fracture-optimization technologies to our unique petroleum-consulting group, we engineer efficiency in every completion. Using innovative technologies like the dual-fuel DF RamForce™ 2500 fracturing pump, i-ball® smart sleeve, and diverter systems, we help you get more from every fracturing dollar.
Weatherford is an oil and gas service company with a presence in every major oil and gas region of the world. Our business is helping our clients to safely and sustainably find, drill, complete, and produce oil and gas fields.
Using our innovative Wave series of spectral azimuthal, seismic, and sonic-imaging tools, we determine optimal fracture placement, size, strength, and spacing. We study variations within the mechanical properties of the rock, which influences the hydraulic-fracture propagation and more accurately predicts fracturing height.
Using the petroleum-consulting portfolio of answer products, including the FracAdvisor™ framework, we integrate reservoir and geomechanical data to optimize fracture placement and stimulation operations.
Ensure Reliable Well Integrity
The safety of your crew, equipment, and the environment depend on well integrity. Our completion technologies, including our Optimax™ tubing-retrievable safety valves, deliver uncompromising reliability to ensure zonal isolation and well integrity.
Your stimulation plan should reflect what’s best for the well rather than equipment constraints. Our ZoneSelect® fracturing-completion system enables stimulation for an unlimited number of zones. This helps you eliminate time-consuming interventions and operate with maximum efficiency.
Our microseismic-mapping services reveal the actual stimulation pattern of your fracture. We model and improve your stimulation program with a full geomechanical analysis plus pump pressures, injection rates, and injection volumes. This helps you avoid unanticipated subsurface complications, optimize your well and fracture trajectory, and avoid wasteful diversions into unfavorable natural fractures.
Fuel for pressure-pumping operations is a major operating expense and can be a logistical challenge. Our dual-fuel DF RamForce™ 2500 fracturing pump units reduce fuel costs without sacrificing horsepower. The system reliably blends diesel fuel with field gas, CNG, LNG, or liquid propane, which reduces your fracturing costs, lowers emissions, and enhances safety with fewer trucks at your wellsite.
Efficient Sand Control
We can help keep your wells flowing, even in high sand-producing wells. We eliminate sand-ingress interventions with exclusive, self-choking screen technology that is patented by ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company and jointly developed with Weatherford.
Efficient Tool Actuation
Our radio-frequency identification (RFID)-based Keystone™ completion systems reduce nonproductive time (NPT) and overall rig time by remotely setting production packers, opening and closing valves, and more. The technology enables tool actuation from the surface, which negates the need for wash pipe, intervention manipulation, or surface control lines.
