    Slickline Operations Course : 10 Days

    Learning Objectives

    Provide a full understanding of slickline operations. Highlight the critical aspects of slickline and the pressure control. Learn the function and use of a wide range of wireline tools. Utilise a hand-on approach to learning in a workshop. Use cutaway tools to ensure a complete understanding of downhole operation. Becomeproficientintheoperationofthewirelineunit. Learn the job planning aspects of a successful wireline operation. Provide a venue for questions and discussion.

    Who should attend

    Personnel who will be carrying out slickline operations. Well Service personnel with a need to know more about wireline operations. Managers with a need to know more about wireline operations. Logistics and support personnel.

    Venue : Vause Training Centre New Plymouth, NZ (VTC) or clients choice of location

    Pre-requisites : Somefieldexposuretowirelineandwellserviceoperationsandapriorknowledge of well completions is an advantage.

    Support material Course presented in .ppt with multi media animations, video clips and movies.

    VTC: Fully equipped workshop, cutaway tool demonstrator and 1000 ft well.

    Course descriptionWhile similar to the 5 day Supervisors course, this training involved a greater degree of

    tool stripping/redress and of the setting up of tools, along with their repair and essential

    maintenance requirements.

    The theory of pressure control equipment and surface component operation

    are taught, then carried out on a well. The function and use of the downhole

    tools is presented in class, then the tools are handled in a workshop before being

    demonstrated as surface cutaways.

    Knowledge gained is then applied to set up actual cutaway tools operated by a

    surface hand winch.
