Why This Course Is Essential

Awareness is the key to prevention!

Wireline was first used in the oilfield the early 1920s as a means of accurately measuring well depth. It started as a flat steel measuring line. Otis was the first company to use a circular wire and to create special wireline units, often mounted on trailers.

Slickline uses small diameter continuous solid wire for manipulating various tools in live or dead wells. Wireline equipment is very portable and rig-up time can be quite fast.

High deviations can cause problems with Slickline, as gravity is required to keep the wire moving down the wellbore. In highly deviated wells, the wireline tool string lies against the side of the tubing and the weight comes off causing the tools to stop moving downwards.

Slickline can be used for a very wide range of jobs such as:

  • Running and pulling flow control devices.
  • Opening and closing circulation devices.
  • Checking the inside of the tubing for debris, waxes, scale, corrosion, etc.
  • Cleaning the inside of the tubing and the completion components.
  • Running and pulling gas lift or chemical injection equipment.
  • Running and pulling DHSVs.

In less than eight hours, this course helps provide a working knowledge of wireline operations, the pressure controls used to maintain well bore pressure and the types of tools and equipment in use.
