Weatherford Laboratories - wellsite services

As the costs and demands of drilling a well have increased exponentially over the years, so has Weatherford Labs.  Consistency, reliability, repeatebility and flexibility are all the basic building blocks upon which successful analysis is created.  The same precision and care that is brought to the analysis in the labs is transferred to all of WFT Labs' operations on your location. 

Whether the play in question is a tight gas sand, a CO2 sequestrian job, a shale oil play, or a well at more then 30,000 feet deep on the Outer Contiental Shelf, WFT Labs brings years of experience through hundreds of thousands of feet of core handling and sampling.

At WFT Labs, remarkable strides have been made in mastering all available services in regards to stabilizing, sampling, testing, and safely shipping conventional core of all types and sizes.  As well as mastering the past, we have continually made breakthroughs in new concepts on location.  We were the first lab to stabilize rotary cores on location in the receiver tube.  We were the first to bring a dedicated building offshore to acquire plugs in the Gulf of Mexico.  We have created a whole new paradigm with wellsite geosciences.

Weatherford Laboratories - routine core analysis

Weatherford Laboratories is exceptionally well placed to assist with those challenges by providing diverse experience, proprietary processes and equipment, and an outstanding laboratory infrastructure around the world. We take a tailored approach to conventional testing, working closely with clients from project inception to develop the best analytical program for the best price.


Weatherford Laboratories - sorption properties

Today our services encompass coal characterization, adsorption isotherm analysis, in situ permeability testing, formation evaluation, CBM reservoir engineering, and core-free critical desorption pressure determinations. Weatherford Laboratories leads the industry in comprehensive sorption reservoir characterization. Authors of the Gas Research Institute books on CBM gas content analysis.


Weatherford Laboratories - fluid phase behavior

Whether your reservoir is a tight gas, gas condensate, conventional oil, heavy oil or bitumen Weatherford Labs results minimize your risk and increase accuracy of your reservoir model. An understanding of the fluid phase behavior of the in situ reservoir fluid is necessary to properly predict current and future fluid behavior during primary.


Weatherford Laboratories - labs to wellsite

Maximizing production of vertical wellbores by immediately identifying the most attractive intervals for hydrocarbon production including potential by-pass pay zones or secondary pay zones. Minimizing completions costs by identifying the more brittle zones ideal for fracturing and more ductile zones to potentially avoid when staging fractures and stimulations.


Services || Weatherford Laboratories

They're the broad categories of a comprehensive, integrated laboratory service available worldwide from Weatherford Laboratories. We carefully evaluate formation damage in the laboratory so it can be minimized in the reservoir. We evaluate consolidated and unconsolidated cores.
