Weatherford launches single-trip deepwater completion system

TR1P HorizontalWeatherford International plc, a drilling oil and gas wells company, has launched the world’s first remote-activated, single-trip deepwater completion system

By combining the upper and lower completions in one trip, the system has been shown to reduce installation time between 40 and 60 per cent and to reduce rig time by four to six days.

Using radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, the field-proven TR1P system delivers 100 per cent intervention less operation in both producer and injector wells.

Mark Hopmann, president, completions for Weatherford, said, “Weatherford’s TR1P advanced deployment system has set a new industry benchmark for completion installations, especially in deepwater environments.”

“The ability to perform multiple operations in less time with less equipment and fewer personnel is a game-changing deepwater solution, and the answer to our customers challenge to significantly increase efficiencies when installing deepwater completion systems. TR1P gives you the ability to perform the operations demanded by your reservoir, rather than your budget,” he added.

“In a deepwater injector well in West Africa, TR1P reduced installation time by 40-60 per cent and cut rig time by four to six days, compared to a two-trip upper and lower completions process,” he stated.

As the only provider of downhole tools enabled by RFID technology, Weatherford combined that capability with elements from its existing completion technologies. The result is the first 100 per cent intervention less operation of the industry that significantly reduces the total cost of installing a deepwater completion system.

The company has also highlighted TR1P advantage:

-Zero control lines, wash pipe, wireline, coiled tubing, workover rigs and wet-connects

-Function test all components during installation

-Circulate the well from the toe to the heel

-Stimulate and isolate a zone or the whole well

-Set and test selective upper and lower completion components

-Test independent barriers

-Bring the well online remotely

The TR1P’s deepwater capabilities has been named a Spotlight on New Technology® Award winner by the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) ahead of their 2019 event to be held in Houston, 6-9 May. The award is presented for breakthrough innovation products that have an impact on offshore exploration and production.
