Loss of wellbore stability can trigger hazards such gas kicks, mud losses, stuck pipe, and lost circulation. The consequences are lost rig time, wasted money, and possible catastrophic wellbore failure.
We help mitigate your drilling hazards by providing pore-pressure specialists, wellsite geologists, wireline witnesses, and operations geologists to independent operators, national oil companies, and government agencies around the world.
Weatherford wellsite advisors work in-house or remotely as part of your team throughout the life cycle of exploration, appraisal, production, and drilling projects.
Our experienced advisors align our capabilities with your processes to deliver safe, reliable, and efficient well operations.
Weatherford pore-pressure specialists assimilate, analyze, and interpret mass volumes of data to provide a real-time overview of the current geopressure situations. This also helps enable “looking ahead” at what pressure regimes will be like hundreds of meters below the present drilling position. It’s all about reducing risk, nonproductive time (NPT), and related costs.
Our team of experienced wellsite geologists supervises mud logging, advanced-gas detection, casing selection, coring, and testing points. They are equipped to lend tactical support to drilling operations in standard, high-temperature/high-pressure (HTHP), hydrogen-sulfide-rich, and deepwater drilling environments. Plus, our operations geologists can help you plan and support comprehensive drilling programs, including budget analysis and program design.
Unlike other providers, wellsite advisor has training and safety practices set to the standards of a global service company.
Weatherford wellsite advisors can help mitigate drilling hazards and improve the economics and safety of your well operations by reducing NPT and the risks of catastrophic well failure or loss of well control.
