Complete Solutions for
WITH A CONSULTATIVE APPROACH
Rather than adapting older technologies for new applications, we have created an extensive portfolio of modern completion technologies—designed in the 21st century for today’s complex, ever-deeper wells. Our best-in-class systems are manufactured to the highest quality, tested beyond required standards, field proven in delivering tangible benefits to operators, and ready for deployment around the world. From start to end, we partner with you to deliver completion solutions tailored to the unique needs of specific wells. With Weatherford, you get a complete, deeply reliable solution for any
We help to mitigate hazards associated with deepwater operations—saving you time and money, preventing disastrous well-control incidents, and protecting your rig personnel, assets, and the environment.
OPTIMAX SAFETY VALVE
With design upgrades that eliminate points of failure in other valve designs and with testing that exceeds API 14A standards, the Optimax™ safety valve is the industry’s most reliable safety valve. We've deployed more than 7,000 safety valves with 20,000 years of cumulative service life—and zero failures attributed to the design.
OPTIPKR PRODUCTION PACKER
Exceeding ISO 14310 standards, the OptiPkr™ production packer combines the robust performance of a permanent packer with the flexibility of a retrievable packer. Comprised of minimal components for reduced complexity, the OptiPkr production packer provides a reliable, V0-rated seal between production tubing and casing in the most demanding wells.
As the market leader in sand-screen technology, we have a comprehensive sand-screen portfolio that includes any type of screen you may need to complete your well. One example is the MazeFlo™ self-mitigating screen, which filters out sand ingress caused by screen damage without the need for any moving parts, interruptions to well production, costly interventions, or extra monitoring. The industry's first self-mitigating sand-control technology, the MazeFlo screen is patented by ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company and jointly developed and licensed to Weatherford.
We streamline your operations and enhance efficiency, and we identify cost-effective solutions to your toughest offshore-completion challenges. In many cases, we can also help to lower overall field-development costs.
TERRAFORM OPENHOLE PACKER SYSTEM
The TerraForm® openhole packer system provides cased-hole functionality in openhole environments. Incorporating proprietary cup-seal technology that conforms to non-uniform wellbores and a unique clutch mechanism that eliminates the risk of formation damage, the packer helps you avoid casing the openhole zone, cementing the lower wellbore, or perforating. This saves several days of rig time valued at millions of dollars.
WFX0 GRAVEL-PACK SYSTEM
The WFX0 gravel-pack system is the first fully integrated, V0-rated gravel-pack system. By combining the gravel-pack string with a deep-set barrier, the WFX0 system eliminates the need for a dedicated deep-set barrier run with an additional packer and ball valve. This enables single-trip gravel packing across multiple zones—saving at least 2 to 3 days of rig time valued at millions of dollars.
We are the industry’s sole provider of downhole technologies enabled by radio-frequency-identification (RFID) technology. Virtually all of our completion technologies are compatible with RFID technology, which lets you operate your tools remotely and on demand. This gives you greater operational flexibility, saves trips in and out of hole, and mitigates interventions.
ULTRALIFT DEEPWATER GAS-LIFT SYSTEM
In deepwater gas-lift operations, safety, efficiency, and reliability are critical. The UltraLift™ gas-lift system delivers consistent, long-term performance with the highest level of completion integrity. By combining the Ultra-HP™ gas-lift valve with the DVX™ side-pocket mandrel, the system provides the ultimate configuration for ultra-high-pressure conditions. All components, including the tiny aerodynamic darts on our DVX check valves, have passed rigorous physical testing to withstand extreme conditions.
OMNIWELL RESERVOIR MONITORING SYSTEM
The OmniWell™ reservoir-monitoring system includes both quartz and optical sensors that let you monitor the performance of your reservoir and gas-lift operations in real time, without obstructing flow. Our sensors—vetted for subsea operations through a comprehensive series of environmental stress tests—perform reliably for periods of time that exceed industry standards.
