Advanced downhole technology on slickline to improve your well

The simplicity and reliability of deploying advanced downhole tools designed and manufactured by Peak Well Systems bring numerous benefits. You can more easily sustain production, restore integrity, and enhance well performance with tools that are purely mechanically set on slickline or other conventional forms of conveyance.

Safety by design to achieve your intervention objectives

By embedding safety and excellence in every aspect of our processes and activities, Peak Well Systems proactively identifies and mitigates risks to product quality and performance. We do the upfront work to make sure your slickline operations are simpler and safer to deliver reliable results.

Maintain production targets and keep opex within budget with slickline operations.

Flow Control

Sealing integrity solutions

Zonal isolation to fit your well environment

Key to reliable flow control is the sealing elements incorporated in the downhole equipment used to isolate one zone from another. This means that the fluid type and well temperature and pressure must all be considered—in addition to the well completion, regulatory requirements, and retrievability—when selecting the appropriate tools and equipment to deploy on slickline.

To meet these needs, we provide simple and reliable mechanically set plugs from the SIM sealing integrity management system.

SIM system plugs are a vast array of slickline-conveyed and recoverable devices for effective flow control. These plugs and the tools for installing them are extensively qualified to different grades and can be set to provide a well barrier anywhere in the tubing, without the need for a nipple profile.

Efficient slickline deployment of reliable, effective tools

When well intervention is needed to remove debris or cut the wire to a stuck toolstring, slickline operations can be the most economical solution for quickly resolving the situation. Slickline’s smaller footprint facilitates mobilization to save precious time.

By deploying mechanically operated tools, you’ll benefit from their high functionality and flexibility in getting the job done:

  • Peak eCutter electronically activated nonexplosive wireline cutter further leverages this reliable performance by initiating activation via an electronic timer and trigger module.
  • Torque-Action Debris Breaker wellbore cleanup and debris removal tool breaks accumulations that resist removal by other methods.
