The money from this financing round will support the qualification and commercialisation phases for the company’s Slim Battery-powered Conveyor. The Slim Battery-powered Conveyor will offer access to the increasing number of slim, horizontal and highly deviated wells, which up to now have not been serviceable with wireline type conveyance.

The Conveyor has been optimised for running on batteries, with an efficient electro-mechanical design, allowing for extended tractoring distances of more than 15 000 ft. Not being dependent on power and communication from the surface allows operators greater flexibility and lower priced conveyance alternatives. The Conveyor has been designed for simplified operations and reduced maintenance, enabling the service to be provided by the regular wireline / conveyance providers. This translates into less interfacing and manpower being needed for operations.

Well Conveyor has carried out extensive in-house qualification testing of the technology and is now preparing for first field trials in the US. The patented Slim Battery-powered Conveyor will serve as a platform for additional innovative and cost-effective conveyance solutions to be developed by the company.

“We have greatly appreciated the support from Chevron Technology Ventures since we were accepted to the Catalyst Program early last year,” said Jan Vader, CEO of Well Conveyor. “We are excited and honoured to further strengthen the relationship through this equity investment, and continue the successful cooperation with Chevron Technology Ventures, ProVenture and Investinor as we transition from the development phase to the commercial phase of the company.”
