Slickline Services

Slickline services from SGS – manage well intervention applications efficiently to increase productivity.

A well must undergo essential intervention applications throughout its lifespan. A slickline, a single strand of wire that is used to run through wellbore, is used to perform these interventions efficiently. Our slickline services can be used for a variety of well intervention applications, from basic completions to advanced technology services, helping to ensure that your well remains as productive as possible.

Why choose slickline services from SGS?

Our slickline units are used throughout the life of a well – during initial completion, maintenance and production. They can be used for:

  • Total depth tagging
  • Gauge ring runs
  • Broach tubing/plunger installations
  • Bailing sand and debris
  • Shifting sleeves
  • Setting/pulling plugs and chokes
  • Setting/pulling gas lift valves
  • Running tailpipes
  • Bottom hole pressure and temperature surveys
  • Spinner surveys
  • Sand cutting and caliper
  • Memory production logging
  • Fishing operations
  • Paraffin cutting
  • Ice and salt chipping
  • Downhole sampling
  • Perforating services

Our units can be operated in remote and harsh environments. We will tailor equipment to accommodate issues with access or logistics. For example, we have modified slickline units with self-erecting booms to be heliportable.

We provide in house and third party services. We have access to a wide network of equipment suppliers, so you can be sure that our experienced team sources the right tools for the job.
