Pressure forged in fire - energy enhanced for life

Formation uncertainties

Acidic corrosion. Extreme pressures. Temperatures up to 600°F. Formation uncertainties. It’s conditions like these that make geothermal well construction such a challenging task – one that requires superior tools. Take greater control with our new WAB® (Welltec® Annular Barrier) Solutions Portfolio with all-metal, high-temperature packers. In the demanding geothermal market, WAB ensures long-term safety and reliability—minimizing maintenance, maximizing asset life with reduced CAPEX and complexity.

Over the next five years, the US can expect more geothermal

From 2030 to 2050 the US geothermal market alone, is expected to grow by more than 60GW of renewable power with 28 million geothermal heat pumps and 17,500 heating systems.

U.S. DOE awards funding to support collaborations with industry    

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced funding for Welltec’s ongoing all-metal WAB packer project - a new solution designed specifically for geothermal applications.

Supported through the Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO), this award is an important piece of GTO’s research and development to reduce costs and risks associated with geothermal well construction through innovative technologies that address key exploration and deployment barriers.
