CONNECTIONS OF ALL TYPES
HELP YOU TO
BUILD A BETTER WELL
The scope of our capabilities goes beyond making up joints. We provide all the connections you need—including virtual, tubular, and physical—to construct a well with long-term value, dependable isolation, and a lifetime of integrity.
Create a virtual connection for monitoring premium-pipe makeup operations. We offer torque-monitoring solutions for real-time, remote viewing of makeup and breakout to reduce the number of people on the rig floor and to enable proper makeup verification. Using the same torque-monitoring solutions, we can make up double, triple, and quad stands offline—and minimize your time on the critical path.
The JAMPro™ Net system enables remote, real-time monitoring and control of torque-turns data during makeup.
The TorkPro® 3 software and JAMCompact® system give you the ability to record, analyze, and evaluate connection data.
Tubular management services prepare pipe offline and deliver it to the wellsite.
Run each connection into your well in the best condition possible. Drawing from a portfolio of diverse technology for connection integrity, we can run drillpipe, casing, tubing, and even chrome pipe for completions. Power tongs in our portfolio have proven features to avert casing damage and support long-term well integrity.
Our mechanized tong portfolio includes the 7.6-50 tong,
22-150 tong, and 21-300 riser tong to meet your needs.
The free-floating backup system—installed as part of the tong—virtually eliminates damaging forces on tubulars.
MicroGrip* technology—used in power tong jaws, elevators, and spiders—minimizes die marks on corrosion-resistant alloys.
The top-drive stand compensator supports the weight of the stand to prevent thread damage during makeup.
Achieve your safety and productivity goals even in the most challenging operations. We offer technologies that connect with your existing equipment while conserving valuable rig-floor space. Beyond the rig floor, we make more physical connections. Our regional and office locations connect to create a global infrastructure for launching our services, and our worldwide competency-based training program graduates prepared personnel.
The LinkMaster™ tong adaptor establishes compatibility between a drilling-package positioning device and Weatherford tong.
The HiPer™ control system enables remote control of Weatherford mechanized tongs and tong-positioning systems.
The PowerFrame® tong-positioning system houses and positions Weatherford mechanized power tongs.
The TorkWrench® iron roughneck provides up to 145,000 ft-lb (196,594 N·m) of torque for makeup and breakout.
LEVERAGE EXPERIENCE THAT SPANS THE ENTIRE
TUBULAR LIFE CYCLE
Weatherford is the only tubular running service company in the world to engage in all stages in the life of the tubular. Unlike other service providers, our involvement starts early in the tubular life cycle—at the pipe mill—and continues all the way to the wellsite. As a result, we are uniquely positioned to help you manage connection integrity, from the makeup of the first coupling to running your quadruple stand in the hole.
OUR GLOBAL EXPERIENCE AND DIVERSE TECHNOLOGY DELIVER
SAFER, FASTER OPERATIONS
As a global leader in tubular running services, Weatherford makes all the right connections to enhance safety, manage risks, and achieve cost efficiency in your operations. Six decades of experience, a vast technological portfolio, and trained professionals enable us to adapt to any operational scenario—from offshore deepwater to conventional land wells.
