At the SPE Thailand E&P Annual Awards Program 2015, held on February 26 in Bangkok, Thailand, the HeatWave™ Extreme service — jointly developed by by Weatherford and Chevron — won the top prize recognising achievement in the oil and gas industry.

The HeatWave Extreme service, the development of which was announced in a November 2015 press release, includes an enhanced logging-while-drilling (LWD) tool string capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 410°F (210°C).

“We are pleased to be recognised not only for our game-changing technology, but also for our close collaboration with Chevron Thailand, who has been an excellent partner throughout this project,” said Etienne Roux, Vice President of Drilling Services at Weatherford.
