Weatherford Secure Drilling® Services and Maersk Training have entered a strategic partnership to enhance scenario-based training and competency for critical wells. The training will provide Weatherford, operator and rig-crew personnel with improved preparation and aptitude to help prevent well-control events and nonproductive time when operating in extreme drilling environments.
Weatherford is a recognized leader in advanced drilling techniques such as managed pressure drilling (“MPD”) and early kick detection (“EKD”). The company recently introduced the OneSync™ software platform, which enhances planning, simulation and control during MPD, EKD, and many other drilling and completions scenarios. The software platform builds on the field-proven Microflux® control system — the cornerstone of Weatherford's MPD portfolio.
