Weatherford has been named Contractor of the Year by Santos.

Santos’ operations team awarded Weatherford the honour from among the several hundred contractors the company employs across their operations.

The award was made for the work of Weatherford's Tubular Running Services team across a four well campaign. The running of all casing and tubing was completed with zero incidents and minimal non-productive time. Adding to the urgency of the challenge was the fact all operations were classified as red zone, meaning high risk with field personnel operating in harm’s way.

Weatherford Vice President, Asia, Eric Young, commented: “We are very happy Santos chose to highlight the work of our Australia tubular running service team by recognising their ‘Pacesetter’ performance in the efficient completion of the task. Being Santos’ Contractor of the Year is a tremendous achievement.”

Brett Darley, Executive Vice President, Offshore, Santos, commented: “Weatherford provided a solution that enabled Santos to execute a safe, efficient tubular running operation with hands-free technology. Safety is extremely important at Santos and Weatherford delivered an outcome with zero incidents and zero near-misses.”
