The HeatWave Extreme service – jointly developed by Weatherford and Chevron – won the top prize recognizing achievement in the oil and gas industry at the SPE Thailand E&P Annual Awards Program 2015, held on February 26 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The HeatWave Extreme service includes an enhanced logging-while-drilling (LWD) tool string capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 410°F (210°C). Development of the tool for commercial use by Chevron Thailand was announced in November 2015.
“We are pleased to be recognized not only for our game-changing technology, but also for our close collaboration with Chevron Thailand, who has been an excellent partner throughout this project,” said Etienne Roux, Vice President of Drilling Services at Weatherford.
