Winner of the OTC 2022 Spotlight on New Technology Award for ReSOLVE iX extreme-performance instrumented wireline intervention service

Reinvent your well intervention to improve production performance

The wireline powered intervention services family expands the operating envelope and ensures a more successful outcome in well intervention—seamlessly integrating ReSOLVE Family instrumented wireline intervention services with StreamLINE iX extreme-performance polymer-locked wireline cableTuffTRAC cased hole services tractor, and TuffTRAC iX extreme-performance wireline tractor.

Now available in two sizes, ReSOLVE Family services comprise the 3 1/8-in ReSOLVE instrumented wireline intervention service and 2 1/8-in ReSOLVE iX extreme-performance instrumented wireline intervention service and can be adapted to meet your objectives and maximize intervention impact. ReSOLVE iX service capabilities are uncompromised by its size and enable intervention in extreme conditions, such as complex completions with small restrictions and sour and HPHT environments.

From completion accessory milling, wellbore fill or deposits removal, shifting, and fishing to plug setting and more, applications are unlimited and made possible by a wide range of cutting-edge hardware, powered by instrumentation, downhole automation, and digital capabilities. Our advanced application engineering (AAE) team can customize solutions to resolve your challenges. The ReSOLVE iX service award-winning slot cutter is the latest addition, developed by our AAE team within 9 months from concept to job execution.

Instrumentation for real-time downhole intelligence

Reduce operational risk and uncertainty and maximize well intervention outcome

The instrumentation enables more than 200 real-time downhole measurement and diagnostics, visualized in a user-friendly dashboard. You can now confirm operations as they happen and quickly adjust your actions to address downhole uncertainties without pulling out of hole.

Furthermore, ReSOLVE Family services are engineered with downhole automation to react faster and deliver the best results. There are more than 40 downhole automation sequences, from stroking, opening anchors, managing motor and voltage, milling, and many more.
