HOUSTON – Weatherford International has made the commercial release of its JetStream radio frequency identification (RFID) circulation sub.
The JetStream RFID circulation sub enables operators to run a series of tools at different positions along the drillstring and remotely actuate the valves an unlimited number of times in a single trip to achieve higher flow rates and cleaner wellbores, said Weatherford.
“As operators deal with more complex wellbores, the ability to drop an RFID tag from the surface and circulate it through the sub enables our clients to open and close downhole tools multiple times, which provides superior operational flexibility and saves days of rig time. In deepwater drilling operations,” said Neil Gordon, vice president of Intervention Services and Drilling Tools at Weatherford.
