Oil & Gas Middle East



Weatherfor­d is back on our list, thanks to major contracts that the company secured from ADNOC last year. In November 2021, the company was awarded two five-year contracts with ADNOC with a combined value of more than $1 billion for downhole completion­s equipment and liner hanger systems.

The Houston-based firm received another five-year framework agreement from ADNOC to provide directiona­l drilling and logging-whiledrill­ing services. The contract is currently valued at over $400 million and ADNOC has an option to extend the contract for an additional two years.

Weatherfor­d also secured a three-year digital oilfield contract from Kuwait Oil Co (KOC), aiming to support its digital transforma­tion strategy in North Kuwait Heavy Oil field and for deploying its Integrated Enterprise Excellence Platform across KOC. The award also includes instrument­ation, real-time monitoring, and production optimisati­on and assurance of wells to enable KOC to optimise its production and workover plans.

Additional­ly, Weatherfor­d received two five-year artificial lift awards from Tatweer Petroleum in Bahrain to deliver, install, and service beam pumping units and downhole pumps.

On the technology front, Weatherfor­d formed a collaborat­ion with Sub Sea Services to transform Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) from an add-on to an integrated part of the drilling rig. The collaborat­ion will integrate Weatherfor­d’s field-proven technologi­es with a remotely operated pull-in system from Sub Sea Services. The result will be an industry-first complete integratio­n of MPD and typical riser auxiliary lines into a single automated connection across a range of drilling operations.
