Introducing the Welltec® Expandable Anchor WEA

HERO 1712 X 963 WEA

4-in-1 completion innovation

Welltec® has officially launched the Welltec® Expandable Anchor (WEA), a 4-in-1 completion innovation firmly rooted in proven metal expandable packer technology, providing industry-leading reliability, efficiency, and flexibility.

The new WEA product is immediately available in a full range of sizes, with key completion applications as a Liner Hanger, Tieback Liner, Inner-String Packer, and Casedhole Plug.  

Already deployed
While the official product release took place in June, prior demand for the solution means that several installations have already taken place, including an onshore application for Heritage Petroleum Company in Trinidad & Tobago, where the WEA was utilized to restore production from an existing asset. 

Continued product development
Like all Welltec products and services, the WEA is fully designed, engineered, and manufactured in house, which has once again translated into minimal lead-time as demonstrated in a WEA deployment in the Middle East.  

Engineered and rigorously tested over the last couple of years, the WEA product range is built on the rock-solid foundation and proven track-record of our metal-expandable packer technology, and has been designed to provide maximum Reliability, Efficiency, and Flexibility.
