Well, here's my suggestion, to make this query both easier and faster:
1) Add a column called "month_prod", integer, to the table. This is the
"number of months in production".
2) Populate this query with a calculated difference on your "date" column
against the first appearance of that WID (I'm assuming that each increment of
"date" = 1 month)
UPDATE prd_data SET months_prod = prd_data."date" - prd2."date" + 1
FROM prd_data prd2
WHERE prd_data.wid = prd2.wid
AND prd2."date" = ( SELECT "date" FROM prd_data prd3
WHERE prd3.wid = prd2.wid
ORDER BY "date" LIMIT 1 );
(warning: the above will take a long time and floor your server. Make sure to
do VACUUM FULL ANALYZE prd_data afterwards.)
(if you can't get the above to complete, which is possible depending on your
hardware, you could do it procedurally in a programmming language)
3) Then running your aggregate becomes very easy/fast:
SELECT wid, sum(oil) as tot_oil, sum(hours) as tot_hours
WHERE months_prod < 7
GROUP BY wid
ORDER BY wid;
