Conventional Completions


Overview icon

As production from conventional wells in existing fields has declined, operators are focused on optimizing the output of these aging wells. Production rates typically will taper off over time, leading to an increase in the cost needed to produce the same amount of hydrocarbons. Rather than forcing the operator to choose between costly workovers and deferred production, Weatherford has developed new alternatives using completions technologies that help rejuvenate the wellbore, address declining production rates, and minimize operational costs.
