Weatherford Introduces Veloxtm Wellhead System


Quick-Connect Components Lock in Pressure Integrity to Reduce Potential Leak Paths, Enhance Safety

HOUSTON, June 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Weatherford International plc (OTC Pink: WFTLF) today announced the Veloxtm wellhead system, a best-in-industry solution for operators needing to lock in pressure integrity while enhancing safety and improving efficiency. Velox delivers unmatched isolation between casing strings with quick-connect components that maintain pressure control, reduce potential leak paths, and minimize non-productive time during installation in many applications, including high-pressure, high-temperature, and sour-gas wells.

The Velox system expedites installation by enabling the packoff to be run in a single trip from the rig floor, which removes personnel from the cellar.  The system also reduces potential leak paths by eliminating conventional flange-to-flange methods and external lockdown screws.

"The Velox wellhead system enables operators to lock in pressure fast," said Dean Bell, President, Drilling, Evaluation & Intervention, Weatherford. "Operators can run the upper and lower packoff assembly from the rig floor to isolate the annuli of multiple intermediate and production strings. The benefits combine to create one indisputable truth: Velox is best-in-the-industry for pressure control."
