HOUSTON, US: ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company announced that it has awarded Weatherford International Ltd the first global license for the company’s MazeFlo sand control screens for oil wells. MazeFlo is one of several openhole sand control completion technologies developed by ExxonMobil during the past few years to address reliability issues in high-cost production wells. The screens utilizing MazeFlo technology were developed under a joint development agreement with Weatherford and will be installed and tested in ExxonMobil production wells during the next two years.

MazeFlo is a patented technology developed by ExxonMobil to improve the reliability of wells completed in sand-prone reservoirs. “MazeFlo is one of several openhole sand control completion technologies developed by ExxonMobil during the past few years to address reliability issues in high-cost production wells. Reliability is very important in deepwater and remote fields where the resource has been developed with high volume wells,” said Sara N Ortwein, President, ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company.
