ABOUT INNOVATIVE WIRELINE SOLUTIONS INC.

The Corporation has developed a fleet of unique wireline (slickline) service vehicles (named the "WellRunner"). Having a built-in crane, the WellRunner eliminates the need for a separate picker truck, often required by older conventional wireline trucks. The WellRunner is environmentally friendly, can operate during seasonal road bans and provides full slickline services to depths of up to 6,000 meters. WellRunner customers also benefit from its significant lower operating costs.
