Wire Line Unit

In the oil and gas industry, the term wire line usually refers to a cabling technology used by operators of oil and gas wells to lower equipment or measurement devices into the well for the purposes of well intervention, reservoir evaluation, and pipe recovery.

Tools inserted into the well for both work over and logging efforts, wire lines and slick lines are very similar devices. While a slick line is a thin cable introduced into a well to deliver and retrieve tools down hole, a wire line is an electrical cable used to lower tools into and transmit data about the conditions of the wellbore called wire line logs. Usually consisting of braided cables, wire lines are used to perform wire line logging, as well

Braided line can contain an inner core of insulated wires which provide power to equipment located at the end of the cable, normally referred to as electric line, and provides a pathway for electrical telemetry for communication between the surface and equipment at the end of the cable.
