RFID Cuts Risk and Reduces Costs for Weatherford

General Session
Weatherford, one of the largest oilfield services companies provides technologies and services for formation evaluation, well construction, completion, stimulation and production, has expanded its existing RFID technology programs to manage the operation of downhole tools during the hydraulic fracturing and stimulation processes. The firm is integrating LF RFID readers in its downhole tools and tags are pumped into wells to trigger such actions as closing or opening valves to control the flow of fluids. Learn how the system reduces operational costs and risk by cutting the amount of time, surface equipment and personnel required to achieve the drilling, completion and stimulation of a well in an ultra-high cost environment.
