Impact Selector and Wireline Engineering Announce Strategic Combination



Impact Selector combines an
advanced optimization program
and proven wireline jar technology
to provide industry-leading
Intelligent ConveyanceTM solutions.



In response to the increasingly challenging nature of today’s formation evaluation and well intervention operations, we at Impact Selector have continued to advance the state-of-the-art in the critical area of conveyance technology.  While we have developed and successfully deployed a wide range of high-performance slickline, e-line and wireline jars over the past 20 years, more importantly we are leading the way with a whole new and advanced approach to downhole conveyance.  We call our approach Intelligent Conveyance Technologies™.

Intelligent Conveyance Technologies™ is a uniquely proactive process, combining planning at the well development stage and careful analysis of well characteristics with strategic placement of risk mitigation tools.  Resulting from this effort are solutions to potential downhole challenges before they become problems, ensuring optimal evaluation and intervention outcomes.

Today’s oil and gas industry is faced with a number of challenges – hazardous environments, difficult well conditions, inexperienced personnel, fluctuating commodity pricing, and the need to control costs. One answer to these issues is using technology to drill, complete, and produce wells more successfully and more efficiently. To provide for this outcome, potential risks must be identified, and their resolution planned before they occur. We at Impact Selector believe that this type of proactive approach represents a positive departure from simply trying to solve problems after they occur.

With our Intelligent Conveyance™ approach to mitigating the risks inherent in formation evaluations and well interventions, we at Impact Selector are ready to work closely with our customers to ensure fewer problems and optimized well outcomes.

What is

Intelligent Conveyance Technologies™ is a full suite of products and services designed to enhance conveyance operations, and to mitigate and prevent sticking risks faced during formation evaluations and well interventions.

A proprietary Impact Selector approach, Intelligent Conveyance means we begin our work with operating companies at the most optimum time in which to make an impact on their wireline operations – at the planning stage – rather than waiting until something goes wrong downhole. By being involved early in the planning process, we’re able to leverage years of understanding and expertise to best provide the most cost effective, efficient risk mitigation solution. The combination of strategic insights and proprietary products delivered through our Intelligent Conveyance process and innovative technology ensures we can better help oil and gas companies optimize performance and reduce costs, today and in the future.
