Any job run on electric wireline in a vertical well can be done in a horizontal or deviated well with the Well Tractor.

The wireline Well Tractor is unique technology that enables intervention tools to reach the end of the horizontal or highly deviated well. This is achieved without employing drill pipe or coiled tubing conveyance methods. Instead, the Well Tractor is a wireline deployed self-propelled robotic device that pushes wireline tool strings out to the end of the wellbore.
