Weatherford International plc Announces TruFrac® Composite Frac Plug at ICoTA 2015

Weatherford International plc announced the commercial release of its TruFrac® composite frac plug at the 2015 Intervention and Coiled Tubing Association (ICoTA) Conference and Exhibition in Booth 411. With a high level of reliability, the TruFrac® composite frac plug maximizes the efficiency of plug-and-perf completion operations by reducing time on location. Because of its reliable sealing capability, the plug is rated for use in environments with temperatures up to 300 degrees F (149 degrees C) and pressures up to 10,000 psi (689 bar). They can be used in single- and multiple-zone stimulation operations in vertical, deviated, horizontal, or multilateral wells. When deployed in horizontal wells, the plug can run in hole at a speed of up to 500 ft/min (152 m/min). The TruFrac® plug recently helped an operator in the Eagle Ford reduce mill-out time to an average of 10.5 minutes per plug from the industry average of 25 minutes per plug, which enabled the operator to accelerate the plug-and-perf operation to begin producing the well faster. To date, the Company has successfully deployed more than 12,000 plugs with 99.98% reliability.

Weatherford International Axe 9% of its Global Workforce

Weatherford International announced that it is axing 9% of its global workforce as the job cull across the oil and gas industry in response to low crude prices continues. The latest redundancies mean about 5,000 people among Weatherford's 56,000-strong head count will soon be out of work. But the group's largely Aberdeen-based eastern hemisphere operations, serving markets such as the North Sea, Middle East, east Asia, Australia and west Africa, will be spared the worst. The company announced more than 85% of its job cuts would be in its western hemisphere business covering the Americas - leaving fewer than 750 posts affected elsewhere.

Weatherford International Plans 8,000 Job Cuts

Weatherford International announced plans to cut up to 8,000 jobs.
