Integrated Intervention and Production Solutions
Produce for Longer
Inside the scope of our integrated intervention and production solutions, we work with you to maximize production, reduce downtime, and enhance overall operational efficiency. Through a cost-effective combination of interventions, well services, stimulation, and artificial lift, we deliver integrated solutions to rejuvenate wells and enhance production. Our Interpretation and Evaluation Services (IES) and production optimization groups provide expert analysis of your asset and use the power of digitalization to survey, monitor, model, optimize performance, and identify areas of higher returns and savings so, ultimately, you can produce for longer.

We focus on restoring the productivity of your asset. Our IES team uses agile screening processes to identify underperforming wells, evaluate current conditions in shut-in wells, and select intervention solutions to achieve production targets with minimal cost. Using our rejuvenation technologies and services portfolio, we address your productivity challenges, including flow assurance, water and solids management, zonal isolation, bypassed payzone identification, and well integrity restoration.
An operator contacted Weatherford to revive three wells with leaking surface-controlled subsurface safety valves. Deployed using slickline and capillary units, the Renaissance WDCL (Weatherford damaged control line) system replaced the valves without using a rig or workover unit, which restored oil production to original rates in each well and saved the operator $20 million overall.
In an openhole gas injector, Weatherford thru-tubing services team provided two successful fishing solutions with an eCTD™ motor and MillSmart™ technology. They removed a slickline bottomhole assembly as originally scoped for the job, and then devised a fishing and milling plan to remove a PX plug. The operation saved the operator 7 to 8 days of rig time, plus $1 million in additional recompletion costs.
Extend asset life
We work with your team to enhance the recovery of your reservoir, extend the run life of your wells and lift equipment, and optimize the production of your asset. Our production engineering team uses local and global expertise, combined with a wide range of production solution tools, to address challenges ranging from formation treatment and stimulation to high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) applications and artificial lift migration. On top of that, we help you maximize production and return on investment (ROI) when transitioning to enhanced oil or gas recovery and beyond.
In a failing well that previously had no gas lift capability, Weatherford introduced the Renaissance® inverse gas-lift system for a return to continuous production and an increase of 3,500 BOPD during the first 3 months. Deploying the system on coiled tubing from a third party eliminated the need for a workover and reduced the customer’s operational costs.
An operator reached out to Weatherford after production had declined in a mature well in recent years. Chosen as the most cost-effective deployment option, a thru-tubing solution including the WidePak™ deep gas-lift system allowed production to continue during the 3-day installation. Ultimately, the solution increased oil production by more than 500% and saved approximately $5 million in rig time and associated expenses.
Using a solution featuring the TBlockSure® self-degradable diverting agent, Weatherford helped the client to restimulate a six-stage oil well in the Permian Basin. The solution formed a mechanical diversion for zonal isolation in low temperatures, which enabled treating previously produced and acidized zones. Eliminating the need for remediation, packer movement, plugs, and a rig saved $40,000.
After evaluating productive potential and reviewing preliminary test results in a carbonate reservoir, Weatherford recommended a pressure-pumping solution including the AcidSure® system. The solution helped to determine the optimal amount of stimulation fluids, generated conductive fractures within the perforated interval, and increased production over initial rates in the J-shape high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) well.
Improve production performance
We improve the production efficiency of your asset by digitalizing your current processes and providing actionable analysis, from reservoir to pipeline. We use our ForeSite® Production 4.0 ecosystem to simplify your daily operations as well as integrate all asset models, data history, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and data from other systems into a single source of truth. Our team of production optimization, data science, and business analytics experts integrates all the data through workflows, wells, surface networks, and predictive models to identify daily uplift potential, lift equipment efficiency opportunities, and production bottlenecks. Furthermore, our ForeSite Flow and Sense surveillance solutions help you to monitor the impact of all your actions and identify areas of improvement in real time.
As part of an enterprise-wide digitalization strategy for a major operator, Weatherford deployed the ForeSite production optimization platform across 3,000 wells to optimize all forms of lift, surface facilities, and pipelines. The platform identified wells to target early on for a quick 5% increase in production, and it provided uplift recommendations to increase incremental revenue CAPEX-free by US $3.25 million per year.
After an assessment across approximately 4,000 wells in the Permian Basin, Weatherford installed the ForeSite platform on more than 80 wells to optimize production across all forms of lift, enhance personnel efficiency, and increase equipment uptime. Following the complete rollout to nearly 1,000 wells, the operator expects annualized savings of at least $17.7 million per year.
In a mature asset with more than 1,000 onshore wells, Weatherford helped a major operator to devise a digitalization strategy, implement a solution, and generate results. The solution, including the ForeSite production optimization platform and CygNet® SCADA platform, enabled handling large quantities of real-time data, managing inventory for well services, and integrating field-level data with corporate data. Transforming the asset resulted in simultaneous efficiency improvements and operating cost reductions for $30 million more a year in recurring income.
Streamline production operations
We simplify production operations by prioritizing jobs, reducing costs, and mitigating the risk of workover and rigless intervention activities. We use our digital ForeSite production optimization platform and Field Service Manager module to maximize recovery and select operational activities with higher ROI. Leveraging a cross-trained team of experts in integrated production and intervention operations, we work with you to minimize operational expenditures (OPEX), reduce safety exposure, and improve operational efficiency.
For an asset using electric-submersible pumps across 1,700 wells, an operator tasked Weatherford with automating production monitoring, analyses, and optimization using a solution that accommodates other forms of lift. The chosen production optimization software platform provided a CAPEX-free solution that identified opportunities for 5,734 more B/D, which represents a $52 million average annual increase or $156 million over 3 years.
We deliver solutions that span all phases of intervention and production.
