This module teaches one of the first things that needs to be learned when using a wireline how to properly attach the tools. Also, terms like Quad combo and cable head are introduced and how understanding a “weakpoint” can save not only the tools, but possible financial penalties. Then, two of the most universal wireline hydraulic systems are described, along with the importance of grease pressure. Finally, before a well can be put into production, the important and precise steps that go into making a “Christmas Tree” are explained.
The Wireline course offers detailed insight into what Wireline is and what it is used for. This course has been dynamically structured to promote the easy learning of some of the most complex techniques in oilfield drilling. Students of this course will not be taught to only memorize definitions and terms, but will be shown why certain tools and techniques are used. This allows for a deeper understanding of the material, and better overall course quality. This course will show how Wireline developed along with the tools and technology that are utilized by engineers all around the world. Students are also made aware of proper tool handling techniques to insure the safety of not only themselves, but of all those around them making a more productive and profitable work place. We understand that effectively building confidence in the way students properly and safely handle tools will pay off almost immediately.
The fifth wireline module teaches operational procedures for running wireline logging devices, including how to attach and check that logging tools are properly attached to the wireline, and operating the winch. Proper understanding of the concept of “weakpoint” can not only save logging tools, but also avoid potential financial penalties. In regards to cased-hole intervention logging, two of the most widely used wireline hydraulic systems are described. Maintaining proper wellhead pressure control, via use of a “Christmas Tree” and a BOP stack, and the importance of maintaining proper grease pressure during wireline intervention are also explained.
