Weatherford International Ltd. was originally incorporated in Delaware in 1972, and as a result of its corporate reorganization in 2002, is now incorporated in Bermuda. The Company is a provider of equipment and services used for the drilling, completion and production of oil and natural gas wells. The Company operates in approximately 100 countries and has service and sales locations in nearly all of the oil and natural gas producing regions in the world. Its operational performance is segmented and reviewed on a geographic basis, and it reports the following regions as reporting segments: (1) North America, (2) Latin America, (3) Europe/West Africa/the Former Soviet Union ("FSU") and (4) Middle East/North Africa/Asia. Its product offerings can be grouped into ten service lines: 1) artificial lift systems; 2) drilling services; 3) well construction; 4) drilling tools; 5) completion systems; 6) wireline and evaluation services; 7) re-entry and fishing; 8) stimulation and chemicals; 9) integrated drilling; and 10) pipeline and specialty services. With the exception of integrated drilling, its service line offerings are provided in all of its regional segments. Artificial lift systems are installed in oil wells and, to a lesser extent, natural gas wells that do not have sufficient reservoir pressure to raise the produced hydrocarbon to the surface. Drilling Services capabilities include directional drilling, Controlled Pressure Drilling(r) (CPD(r)) & Well Testing, drilling-with-casing (DwC((TM))) and drilling-with-liner (DwL((TM))) systems and surface logging systems. Well Construction grouping includes the primary services and products required to construct a well and spans tubular running services, cementation tools, liner systems, solid tubular expandable technologies and aluminum alloy tubular products. Drilling Tools designs and manufactures patented tools, including its drilling jars, rotating control devices and other pressure-control equipment used in drilling oil and natural gas wells. Completion Systems offers its clients a line of completion tools and sand screens. Wireline and evaluation services, in concert with surface logging systems and LWD, form a data acquisition and interpretation capability that enables clients with an integrated approach to formation evaluation and reservoir characterization. Its re-entry, fishing and thru-tubing services help clients repair wells that have mechanical problems or that need work to prolong production of oil and natural gas reserves. Stimulation and Chemicals offers its clients advanced chemical technology and services for safer and more effective production enhancement. Integrated Drilling has the ability to offer project management services to its clients, in which they provide a number of products and services needed to drill and complete a well, including the rig.
