Create a pressure-tight barrier against drilling hazards
The critical component of any closed-loop drilling (CLD) system—and the first line of defense for your wellbore—is the rotating control device (RCD). RCDs create a closed-loop environment to contain and divert fluids and to enable wellbore pressure management.
Weatherford has achieved many industry milestones for RCDs, from debuting the first RCD in the world in 1968 to completing API testing with nitrogen to validate RCD use in pure gas conditions in 2016. Today, we offer a field-proven portfolio with solutions for all environments.
