Wireline Winch

Wireline Winch Systems for reservoir studies, work over and well completion by UDTL

In 2018, the drilling activities across the global oil and gas industry witnessed substantial recovery. Based on those numbers, analysts suggest a better growth in drilling activities this year as well. While analysing the statistics of both onshore and offshore drilling activities, it was found that in the past decade, subsea well completions have also increased significantly. As a result, wireline winch market is growing stronger.

Wireline winch is widely applied across the oil and gas industry for various purposes including well intervention and reservoir evaluation. All these developments have provided a chance of technological improvement to the wireline winch industry. Increase in drilling and completion activities have provided better opportunities to the manufacturers and suppliers of wireline winches and helped them to penetrate the market with promising tools and equipment.
