Wireline Skates

Wireline Skates

Reduce tool friction and trip time

BHGE's Cased Hole Wireline skates are available in various sizes to meet many different applications. Wirelines skates reduce tool friction when entering a well, thereby helping to reduce trip time and the need for extra weight bars or tractor conveyance.

Reach your desired depth without mechanical assistance reliance

  • The Wireline Skate reduces tool friction when entering a well.  In order to achieve this, the OD of the wireline skate must be slightly larger than that of the downhole tool in question. This difference in tool OD makes it possible to keep the body of the downhole tool off of the tubing or casing wall.  The only thing left in contact with the tubing or casing will be the wheels of the Skate.  This reduction in friction allows the tool to fall deeper into a well with a large deviation angle. This may also reduce, or in some cases eliminate, the need for mechanical assistance to reach the desired depth in a well.

    BHGE offers skates in sizes ranging from 1-5/8” (41.3mm) to 3-3/4” (95.3mm) diameter.
