“Clear communication is crucial for us. Not just amongst each other, but also toward the client. Our experienced personnel know exactly what our rigs can handle and what not – and are honest in sharing their assessment.”

Light Workover – Great Flexibility

A perfect interaction between our 14 winches and the team operating them results in an expedient, safe and swift process at your wellsite. Not only for standard operations, but also when flexibility is called for. It takes routine between man and machine to find a creative solution.

To keep loading and retooling times as short as possible – and your costs low – we use wireline trucks only for Light Workover tasks which can be driven directly to the wellsite without requiring a special permit. Next to the resulting savings, this also offers a great plus in flexibility and instant readiness whenever there are unforeseen production downtimes.
