Weatherford Unveils Technology to Transform Well Construction

Company and Product News

Weatherford is introducing Vero automated connection integrity, which applies artificial intelligence to minimize safety risks and validate well integrity with absolute certainty.

In applications ranging from conventional land to complex deep water, the Vero solution provides operators with previously unobtainable consistency and accuracy according to the company. The solution employs two new proprietary features: AutoMakeup technology, which precisely controls the makeup of tubular connections automatically, and AutoEvaluate software, which continually assesses torque against original equipment manufacturer specifications.

By applying artificial intelligence at every stage from pipe manufacturing to well installation, the Vero solution removes the uncertainty of human judgment from the connection process. In doing so, the solution can minimize the chance of catastrophic well failures associated with poorly made up connections, as well as significantly reduce the total cost of well ownership, minimize safety risks, and protect corporate reputation.
