Slimline Logging Services


Slimline Heli Long Line

To help maximize the value of your exploration-mining program budgets, you need the most advanced and reliable products to ensure you can answer the needs of investors, planners, engineers, designers, and managers.

Geological and geophysical data gathered from exploration and development boreholes are used as the basis for minerals, resource, and reserve evaluations, as well as mine planning and design. This information is also vital in the investment cycle of any mine or prospect. To allow geologists and geophysicists to report with confidence and enable investors to make informed decisions, the data gathered must be robust, reliable, and complete.

Slimline Wireline Services

For more than 40 years, Weatherford slimline logging services has grown significantly as a minerals logging company. However, it also has a long history of logging unconventional oil and gas wells.

The logging equipment is compact, light, versatile, and capable of operation by a single person. It can be used in relatively shallow boreholes with diameters ranging from 2.36 in. (60 mm) to 10 in. (254 mm), but it can also be used to log boreholes with larger diameters.

Slimline logging services has established bases in Australasia, USA, Mongolia, Canada, Latin America, and sub-Saharan Africa, which allows us to offer economical and practical solutions to explorers working around the world. The size and the robustness of our equipment allows it to be easily mobilized to the most remote locations.
