Weatherford International plc has won two 2018 OTC Asia Spotlight on New Technology Awards for the HeatWave Extreme service and the WFX0 openhole gravel-pack system.

The HeatWave Extreme service features an enhanced logging-while-drilling tool string capable of acquiring comprehensive formation evaluation data while drilling at temperatures up to 200°C (392°F). The technology has been successfully deployed in more than 75 wells, including many in the Gulf of Thailand.

The WFX0 system is the industry’s first fully integrated gravel-pack system to achieve an API/ISO V0 rating, which validates that it has been tested to the market’s highest standards with zero gas leakage. The technology enables gravel-pack completion of multiple openhole zones in a single trip.

“We are pleased to be recognized for these two game-changing technologies which offer our customers significant time and cost savings, as well as enhanced reliability, in offshore environments,” said Frederico Justus, president, Eastern Hemisphere, at Weatherford.
