Halliburton has passed the milestone of deploying 500 SmartWell completion systems. WellDynamics designed and deployed the first SmartWell completion system in 1997; the company was acquired by Halliburton in 2008.

SmartWell completions have been deployed in more than 26 countries. “This 500th SmartWell completion is an illustration of operators’ acceptance of SmartWell systems as a standard completion design option,” said Jerry Wauters, Halliburton’s vice president for Completion Tools.
