ABU DHABI, UAE Weatherford International plc has launched its Production Optimization Consulting (POC) group.

Weatherford POC services integrate cyclical optimization solutions to enable proactive well, reservoir and asset management.

Under the new group, Weatherford consultants will collaborate with operators to achieve single-well or full-field optimization. After analysis of the well or field, the consultants can recommend the most suitable artificial-lift systems, surface and downhole sensors, controllers, production optimization software and workflows appropriate to the assets.

The company says its POC services can be applied to a wide range of fields, including conventional, deepwater, unconventional shale and heavy oil.

“Weatherford offers the largest artificial-lift portfolio in the industry, along with a 480,000-well track record of successful optimization-software implementation,” said Ashok Dixit, vice president of Production Optimization Consulting at Weatherford. “Additionally, through our asset inspection methodology, Gain and Sustain collaborative methodology, we help our clients reduce downtime, increase production and increase the meantime between failures.”
