“An OFS Portal membership enables us access to an already established large legal framework of agreements with our customers and their networks which means we don't have to do it one at a time,” said Chris Beard, Wellbore VP of Technology. “Through their agreements we will immediately be able to use the PIDX standard as protocol for all of our customers, making customer onboarding easier and faster.”
WIS, an affiliate of private equity firm Rhone Capital and Schlumberger announced in May their agreement for WIS to acquire the fishing and tubulars businesses and assets from Schlumberger. WIS expects to have nearly 1,100 employees and operations in 25 countries once the transaction completes.

We will help Wellbore achieve the same scalability as their global operations grow.”
