Paradigm Intervention Technologies (Paradigm) and international oilfield services company, Expro, have signed an alliance agreement to deliver digital slickline services.

The partnership specifically focuses on Paradigm’s patented ‘Slick-E-Line ®’ technology, which combines the versatility and efficiency of traditional slickline with the real time data streaming capability of electric line.  Alongside Expro’s global market leading expertise in well intervention services, this allows the alliance to deliver a broader range of mechanical slickline and cased hole logging applications.  

Signed in January 2018, this agreement responds to the increasing demand for new technology that improves operational efficiency across a wide range of well intervention activities, while minimising any costly non-productive time.

John Creighton, Paradigm’s General Manager, commented:

"We are seeing a new wave of customer projects that require digitally enabled slickline. Working alongside a leading global well intervention provider, we are now positioned to deliver a combined service that allows our customers to meet and exceed their operational objectives.”

Dave Bowman, Expro’s Well Intervention Vice President, added:

"This is a strategically important partnership that complements our existing slickline and cased hole services, bridging the gap and providing our customers with real-time decision making for their well intervention challenges.”

Paradigm’s patented Slick-E-Line® was successfully commercialised in late 2016 and is now operating in multiple key oil and gas markets around the world.
