In September 2013, Weatherford worked with its client to apply drilling with liner technology in a deepwater Gulf of Mexico well to isolate a depleted sand zone. Steve Rosenberg, Global Drilling Reliability Manager for Well Engineering & Project Management at Weatherford, presented the case study this week at the 2014 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference in Fort Worth, Texas. He speaks with DC associate editor Joanne Liou in this video about the drilling-with-liner concept and the significance of key stakeholders collaborating in the pre-planning stages.
