Paul Day, business development director for Weatherford, speaks with Drilling Contractor associate editor Katherine Scott about the company’s Keystone module on the exhibit floor of the 2013 OTC on 8 May in Houston. The Keystone module is an RFID-based, remotely operated electronic completion system to control downhole tools that can set packers or open packer setting ports, operate sliding sleeves to allow tubing to annulus circulation, close and open barrier valves, and operate fill subs. The system is made up of four elements— an RFID-hydraulic-power unit, a circulation valve, a production packer and a fall-through-flapper barrier valve.

Keystone is a trademark of Weatherford.
