The system replaces larger, conventional and more labor-intensive wireline rig-ups for a range of slickline operations such as solids removal, plug setting/pulling and logging surveys. Galea™ can be configured in different operating modes to suit a range of applications and environments.
Fully autonomous modePermanently installed onto the wellhead, the system deploys a tool string into the well either at regular intervals or defined by the well conditions. Between interventions, the tool string is parked within a short lubricator section which is mounted directly above dual shear-and-seal electrically actuated gate valves. These valves, in conjunction with the stuffing box, provide a triple barrier between the well bore and environment during normal production operations.
Semi-autonomous modeA pre-programmed intervention sequence is initiated locally or remotely. This configuration is particularly suited to multi-well platforms or pads where regular interventions – such as paraffin wax scraping operations – are required. Having the small, self-contained package located at the wellsite year-round eliminates the dependency on wireline unit or truck availability and reduces environmental impact of your operations.
Manual modeEnables a quick rig-up intervention solution that is operated locally using familiar wireline winch controls. Significant time savings can be made during rig-up and rig-down compared to conventional operations and when not in use, the system occupies a fraction of the space required for a standard slickline winch unit and pressure control equipment (PCE) package.
Galea ™ maximizes production while reducing operational overheads by using an intelligent, autonomous system to perform a variety of slickline operations
