Good Operating Practice
To ensure multi- strand cable (braided line) performs efficiently throughout its working life, it is imperative that it is kept in optimum condition. Please read the following operating practices, which, if not being used at the moment, should be adopted immediately.
- Log book should be kept, showing up to date details of the following:
- Type of wire
- Date wire spooled onto reel
- Length of wire pooled onto reel
- Length of exposure to well fluids and type of fluid
- Depth of wireline operation
- Maximum strain exerted on wire
- Amount of wire cut after operation
- Amount of wire remaining on reel
