Weatherford launches new production, reservoir monitoring offering
GENEVA, Switzerland -- Weatherford International’s production systems business unit has announced the release of OmniWell Production and Reservoir Monitoring. Weatherford’s OmniWell solutions provide unified reservoir monitoring for real-time downhole data in well conditions ranging from routine to the most extreme environments.
Fit-for-purpose OmniWell solutions incorporate electronic and optical sensing technologies. These solutions deliver reliable, real-time data for pressure, thermal, flow, acoustic and seismic applications to enable more informed decision making. A unique, Weatherford-designed downhole OmniWell cable physically integrates multiple measurement solutions. The data from those solutions is acquired at the surface and processed through a scalable data management platform that relays critical data to powerful visualization and analysis platforms in real time.
“The OmniWell approach simplifies and unifies integration and workflows for reservoir solutions for all well types in today’s broad range of production environments. This is a shift from a typical tool-based or fragmented data collection approach to a more unified solution where various streams of critical data are transferred to an operator from multiple downhole sources—when he or she needs it—through a unified system, for better production and asset management,” said Tad Bostick, V.P. of Reservoir Monitoring for Weatherford.
Weatherford has also introduced a new, scalable data platform for acquiring, integrating and managing critical well data, plus software and services to simultaneously visualize dynamic, multi-parameter data for changing well conditions. The integrated data platform for multi-application, multi-measurements and distributed sensing enables correlated readings and permits advanced, real-time characterization of the well environment. This software and service platform provides a powerful window for analysis and action.
This unified approach is further demonstrated in the simplified OmniWell optical cable system, which can operate in low to extreme temperatures and pressures and can deliver the widest variety of sensing data available in the industry. Simplified downhole cabling will enable real value sensing for activities such as flow profiling, frac monitoring, production surveillance and thermal profiling.
