Oilfield services firm Weatherford International Plc last week announced it’s signed two contracts totaling $67.4 million for drilling services with two unnamed operators in Russia, Kallanish Energy reports.
The first contract spans 30 months. Operations began in July 2019, and will last through the end of 2022. Weatherford will provide logging-while-drilling (LWD), measurement-while-drilling (MWD), rotary steerable systems (RSS), drilling, and geo-data interpretation services at several oilfields in Western Siberia.
The second contract is a three-year drilling services contract. Operations will begin in early 2020 with Weatherford providing LWD, MWD, RSS, geosteering, and geo-data interpretation services at the Novyi Port oilfield on the Yamal Peninsula.
“These long-term contracts with major operators in Russia are a testament to Weatherford’s record of advancing drilling technology and delivering excellent service in that region,” said Fayaz Kamalov, Weatherford vice president of Russia.
At present, Weatherford is running multiple local facilities to support its customers and operations in Russia. Three full-time drilling service centers in production areas across Russia maintain field equipment, and one real-time operations center provides around-the-clock remote support for all ongoing projects.
