Software Real-time Production Optimization
Weatherford recognizes that different types of wells and reservoirs require
different methods of optimization. Therefore, we provide the Field Office™ suite of specialized production optimization software tools. These tools
help operators achieve real-time results for operational efficiencies, namely
increased production, decreased lifting costs and minimized downtime. The
package includes industry-leading applications providing optimization for
all forms of artificial lift, well design, reservoir monitoring, well testing and
workflow management. It is a full-field package for surface to subsurface
modeling, analysis and optimization.
Weatherford’s real-time surveillance and analysis tools grant significant
time savings and a more attractive bottom line by providing notification of
those wells that are under performing, replacing rote field surveillance with
automated event detection and consolidating disparate field data. This
enables workers and managers to make better decisions faster with around-the-
clock surveillance of key field performance indicators.
Production, real-time well surveillance, analysis and servicing data are
integrated into a shared database where the user can easily compare
information historically through trends, comparatively across wells and
effectively through modeling how changes affect performance of assets and
the entire field operations.
