Gyrodata’s requirements were for wireline units with high accuracy measuring capabilities, with a reliable maintenance and service history.
In the beginning, four used D & W units were purchased and re-built in order to offer reliable service. It was soon realized that in order to maintain reliability, a large expenditure on maintenance had to be incurred. At this time, it was decided that a new type of wireline unit should be designed and built to withstand the Middle East environmental problems placed on the units and also to use the latest technologies available to improve performance offshore.
Al Roumi, with assistance, designed its latest containerized wireline unit using core ten steel to withstand the offshore working environment. Incorporated in these units was the latest Sauer Sundstrand Pump which drives a radial poclain motor. These unit has now become the Al Roumi Wireline Company’s standard unit and exceeds the standards of mono-conductor wireline units offered by other wireline companies in Al Roumi Wireline Company’s area of operations.
In 1995 Al Roumi Wireline Company expanded its operations with its original purchase of a D & W. 108″ helicopter transportable slickline unit, shortly followed by an additional 8 similar type units, and 3 double-drum 3116th mono-conductor/108 slickline units which were re-designed inhouse.
Currently, Al Roumi Wireline Company has units operating in four different countries throughout the Middle East with ongoing expansion taking place.
