Weatherford will embed INT’s IVAAP framework into the Weatherford Centro digital well delivery software, advancing its data visualisation capabilities.

Olivier Lhemann, president of INT, said, “Weatherford’s selection of the IVAAP framework for their Centro software is extremely exciting for INT.

“Centro is leading the industry-wide digital transformation as part of a new generation of applications built fully in HTML5. It is both highly collaborative and powerful, but still very user-friendly. INT has worked with Weatherford for many years, and we are proud to be part of their innovative approach to integrating data and analytics within a single platform.”

Weatherford Centro digital well delivery software offers exceptional workflows that seamlessly integrate every element of an operator’s well data, allowing team members from any global location to access, share, and store all vital project information at any time. Combining Centro’s advanced data visualisation capabilities with the IVAAP framework provides next-level real-time well visualisation in 2D and 3D.

Gustavo Urdaneta, drilling software global manager at Weatherford, commented, “Weatherford provides digital solutions that help our customers reduce costs and increase operational efficiency.

“The proven E&P data visualisation and open architecture design was a critical factor in selecting the IVAAP framework to enhance the value of user-centric visualisations in our well delivery software.”

Weatherford has been at the forefront of software innovation, especially in drilling and production. Both companies have built a strong relationship by embedding advanced HTML5 domain visualisations libraries and modules from INT in several Weatherford software applications.
