Slickline / Wireline Tools are used to lower and raise downhole tools used in oil and gas well maintenance to the appropriate depth of the drilled well. Slickline is used to lower downhole tools into an oil or gas well to perform a specified maintenance job downhole. Downhole refers to the area in the pipe below surface, the pipe being either the casing cemented in the hole by the drilling rig or the tubing, a smaller diameter pipe hung inside the casing. Slickline is more commonly used in production tubing. The wireline operator monitors at surface the slickline tension via a depth counter ‘zeroed’ from surface, lower the downhole tool to the proper depth, completes the job by manipulating the downhole tool mechanically, checks to make sure it worked if possible, and pulls the tool back out by winding the slickline back onto drum it was spooled from.
