Selective lateral intervention completion system

Multilateral completion systems.

Access or isolate a lateral from the main bore—without a rig

The modular selective lateral intervention completion (SLIC) system enables through-tubing intervention in multilateral wells. It can be used to access the lateral or to hydraulically isolate the lateral from the main bore.

Multiple modules can be installed for selective intervention access with a wellbore has multiple laterals.
