Weatherford International plc has won two 2018 OTC Asia Spotlight on New Technology Awards for the HeatWave ExtremeSM service and the WFX0™ openhole gravel-pack system. The Spotlight on New Technology Awards programme recognises the latest and most advanced technologies that are leading the industry into the future.

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 industry’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 recognised 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.
