Cable swabbing units
In offering cable swabbing to Alberta and all of Western Canada, Carnwood Wireline Service Ltd. aims to be your single-point resource for cable swabbing and related services. Operating 24 hours a day, we are fully equipped, properly insured, and ready to answer your service request, whether it’s in Alberta, British Columbia, or Saskatchewan.
All units operate on a standalone basis. Therefore, the need for a crane/picker unit isn’t required. All units are equipped with 20mPa-rated (3,000 PSI) working pressure equipment. Our standard swab rig has cable capacity ranging from 3000m to 4200m 12.7mm (1/2 inch) braided steel cable. This provides sheer weights from 18,000 - 20,000lbs. Over half our fleet has the ability to swab slant wells with fully slanting derricks. We also have two tri-drive units so road bans are much easier to manage.
Every unit is operated by a fully qualified two-man crew. The units are equipped with lighting systems, so night operations are not a problem.
We have various types of swab tanks available. Our standard portable open-top tank and swab tank trucks can move from location to location with the swab rig. Carnwood’s portable rig tanks can hold 14 or 16 cubic meters and have built-in degasser and solids troughs. These are also equipped with a 2” adjustable choke using 2” 3,000-pound pipes and unions.
