Welltec receives praise from Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd. on well completion operation

When Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd. recently experienced problems during a slickline run, Welltec stepped in to finish the job.

Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd. was carrying out the completion of a well, offshore UK. Originally, Welltec was engaged to enable the installation of a bridge plug to facilitate packer setting and protect the Fluid Loss Control Valve from prematurely shearing. The junk catcher and the plug were planned to be retrieved using slickline. However, when this proved impossible, Welltec successfully completed the operation using the Well Stroker and Well Tractor together with the slickline retrieval assemblies; fishing the junk basket in the first run and the bridge plug on the second run. Both runs were completed without incident.
