Weatherford International plc has announced that its Vero® automated connection integrity system, which applies artificial intelligence to validate well integrity with absolute certainty and minimize safety risks, has completed 15,000 tubular connections in 50 operations worldwide since its market debut.

In less than two years, Vero is delivering value to producers around the globe. Notable real-world results include:

Kazakhstan: Running multiple jobs per month for an operator with zero Nonproductive Time while consistently improving efficiency and removing personnel from the rig floor.

United Arab Emirates: Offshore operation achieved a 30 percent increase in running speeds and zero rejected joints on multiple jobs.

Norway: Improved previous mechanized operational performance by 15 percent, resulting in the fastest liner-running operation on that rig in four years.

Qatar: The operator asked for the system by name when it needed to pull and re-run a completion. Weatherford is currently running a third commercial operation for the operator.

By applying artificial intelligence at every stage from pipe manufacturing to well installation, Vero improves connection make-up efficiency and eliminates the inevitable errors associated with human judgement during the connection process. In doing so, the solution can minimize the chance of catastrophic well failures associated with poorly made-up connections, significantly reduce the total cost of well ownership, minimize personnel safety risks, and protect corporate reputation.
