Weatherford International introduced that its Vero automated connection integrity has efficiently accomplished 100 runs and 33,000 tubular connections in operations worldwide since its market debut. Vero applies synthetic intelligence to attenuate security dangers and validate nicely integrity from the wellhead to whole depth.
Since its launch in November 2018, Vero has delivered measurable worth to producers across the globe. Notable real-world outcomes embody:
• Offshore Qatar: Pulled the completion string in two wells and enabled 75% extra pipe to be re-used than benchmark after automating the connection breakout course of.
• North Sea: Made up greater than 1,200 completion connections whereas reaching a report run fee.
• Offshore Azerbaijan: Ran seven completions with greater than 2,900 connections and nil connection injury.
• Argentina: Saved 24 hours of rig time on greater than 1,000 connections with zero broken in completions for 3 wells.
• Norway: Improved earlier mechanized operational efficiency by 15 %, ensuing within the quickest liner-running operation on that rig in 4 years.
• Globally: Eliminated greater than 10,000 hours of personnel publicity to rig flooring security dangers.
“Vero is essentially the most disruptive know-how ever launched within the tubular operating house and operators around the globe are taking discover and benefitting from the distinctive worth,” mentioned Dean Bell, President, Drilling, Evaluation and Intervention, Weatherford. “By changing the inherent flaws of human judgment with AutoMakeup and AutoEvaluate applied sciences, Vero goes past tubular operating to assist operators construct wells that final a lifetime.”
By making use of synthetic intelligence at each stage from pipe manufacturing to nicely set up, Vero improves connection make up effectivity and eliminates the inevitable errors related to human judgement in the course of the connection course of. In doing so, the answer can decrease the prospect of catastrophic nicely failures related to poorly made up connections, considerably cut back the whole value of nicely possession, decrease security dangers, and defend company status.
