Fundamentals of Slickline Operations

The course will consist of a few theoretical sessions in the classroom with experienced professionals providing presentations of the tools and operations; the participants will also have various practical exposure sessions using the Slickline well/pad and having hands on sessions using the Slickline tools in the workshop.

The class will be 50% in classroom and 50% practical in the workshop and wellsite pad, including access to an actual well.

The course will include a detailed introduction to Slickline equipment and instrumentation used to control, condition and monitor downhole operations.

The course will provide a clear understanding of the primary operations & need for Slickline in the oil & gas industry.
