Wireline International, the American subsidiary of Aberdeen-based Wireline Engineering, has secured a contract valued at £1.9 million ($3.1 million) from Mexican petroleum company, PEMEX, for the supply of its patented Roller Bogie.

The company, a wireline and well intervention technology specialist, secured the contract for a range of its Roller Bogie products, which have been developed to improve the deployment of wireline equipment in deviated wells.

The Roller Bogie has the advantage of allowing for easier and deeper wellbore access, while removing friction with the tubing.

Bill Petrie, chairman of Wireline Engineering, said: “We have worked hard to develop our position in the thriving Mexican market. This is our third major contract award from Pemex and we are delighted the company is continuing to see the benefit of our specialist technologies.”

He added that “Winning such a sizeable order further demonstrates the value of the company and its expertise to the Latin America market, and the opportunities there are for small companies with world-class products.”
