HOUSTON, May 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Weatherford International plc (NASDAQ: WFRD) (“Weatherford” or the “Company”) announced it has been awarded a two-year frame agreement extension with Equinor, a multinational energy company, for the delivery of completions, liner-hangers, and slot recovery services.

To deliver on this scope, Weatherford will offer its Accuview® downhole monitoring solutions with the AlphaVTM next-generation whipstock system building on our track record of enhancing operational efficiency and reducing rig time. Notably, in 2023, Weatherford successfully introduced AlphaVTM, enabled by the Accuview® platform in the North Sea for Equinor. This deployment eliminated the need for a dedicated wellbore preparation run, saving cost and improving operation efficiency through remote monitoring capabilities. Combining these proprietary technologies with those acquired from the Ardyne portfolio, Weatherford recently executed a slot recovery operation, delivering further cost and operational enhancements for Equinor.

Through this extension, Equinor also gains access to Weatherford's leading ForeSite® sense optical reservoir monitoring solution alongside a comprehensive array of completion solutions. Weatherford's unique offering allows for integrating various measurement types in a single fiber optic cable, simplifying the downhole architecture and facilitating reliable reservoir monitoring as a means to production optimization.
