ForeSite® Edge

Enhances Well Production by 12%, Reduces Site Visits by 50% in an Unconventional Field


  • Improve well productivity by enhancing production on 3 rod-lift pilot wells in an unconventional field with dynamic well behavior.
  • Improve personnel efficiency and reduce safety and environmental risk by enabling real-time surveillance and optimization.

Our Approach

  • Retrofit ForeSite Edge to the existing automation equipment to enable real-time surveillance and control while leveraging the ForeSite production optimization platform.
  • Once deployed, ForeSite Edge utilized high-frequency data collection to provide key measurements.
  • Autonomous Control Logics (ACL) developed by Weatherford were implemented to optimize key performance metrics on surface and subsurface to further production optimization opportunities.

Value to Customer

  • ForeSite Edge delivered end-to-end digital capabilities on all 3 pilot wells, improved production by 12%, reduced site visits by 50%, and improved ROI.
  • ForeSite Edge optimized over-pumping well conditions while maintaining stable production for 90 days (trial period) and improved equipment reliability.
  • High-frequency surveillance allowed the customer to proactively identify what wells required preventive and corrective maintenance.
  • Based on the results of the pilots, the customer expanded ForeSite Edge capabilities to all 120 rod-lift wells in the field.
