  • Primarily Unconventional marketDiverse landscapeRequires adaptation, flexibility, and infrastructure
  • Segmented by business unit – provides focused engineering and field supportCustomized to client’s needsAlign like to likeManufacturing creates the tools for the Canadian market2900 regional operational employees (Sales, engineering, geology, finance, Hr) help successfully deploy those tools
  • We provide – Well Planning / Directional & MWD Engineers / MWD Tools / Mud Motors / Remote Capabilities
  • 80% wells in Canada are drilled horizontalAlmost 25 years improving horizontal and directional drillingMore than doubled the amount Hz wells Weatherford drillsIn 2014 we will help our clients drill over 800 unconventional horizontal wells
  • World record holder – drilled 20 leg multilateral from one padPeace River – challenging – People, planning, tools (MWD & Mud Motors)
  • Provide cased hole perforation servicesConsidered the industry experts in cased and open hole completions solutions – Canadian Success Story!!
  • Due to technical expertise and operational strengths we have grown our completions business significantlyThe average unconventional well is approximately 16 zones and WFT annually completes just over 10,000This represents compounded annual growth of over 272%
  • We are Canada’s only provider of all five forms of liftIn Canada we do not and will provide pumping services to the marketOur primary focus is on improving and optimizing production
  • In Canada shale gas currently does not require lift do to significant downhole pressureHowever, shale oil (Cardium/Bakken) primarily uses rod pump and gas lift to produce the oil to surface95% of shale oil wells use Rod pumping systemsJet pumps are used for frac-flow back while gas lift provides producers with access to gas a low maintenance high production artificial lift solution
  • In Canada we are considered the most experienced and trusted FishermenWhen there is a mistake or problem in your wellbore we have the people and the tools to get you outThru-tubing and casing exits allow customers to repair or renew existing, old or abandoned wells
