In 1972, the separate company of Energy Ventures, Inc. was founded as an offshore gas and oil exploration and production company.In 1987, Energy Ventures was liquidated and re-established and by 1990, had acquired Grant Oil Country Tubular Company.

In 1991, Weatherford acquired Petroleum Equipment Tools Company (PETCO). Weatherford and HOMCO later merged operations to create Weatherford Services, the largest oil fishing/rental company

a stronger completion competence with the addition of well-known brands in the sector such as Petroline, Cardium, Nodeco, McAllister, Johnson Screens, Houston Well Screens, Arrow, and CIDRA.
