Wireline - Introduction
Wireline is the generic name relating to a well intervention method for
conveying tools to and from the well bore. Wireline may be split into 3
sub sections namely Slick-line, Electric Line & Braided Line. Each
'service' has its own applications (and limitations) and is further
described in the relevant web site sub sections.
Wireline enables many downhole operations to be conducted efficiently and cost effectively under 'live' well conditions. Improvements in manufacturing processes, maintenance and increasing diameters has ensured increased reliability and performance despite increasing well depths , temperatures and pressures in which the wireline has to work under.
