HWS Commitment To Value

Objectives and Key Advantages

Our objective is to provide the safest and most efficient wireline services in the industry. This is more than a simple statement, it is the foundation of our business. We aspire to achieve this objective every day through a rigid focus on providing only the best: Safety, People, Process, Equipment and Technology.

This basic methodology has allowed us to rise above the competition in each of these key categories.  Driven by our dedication to service quality and efficiency, Horizontal Wireline Services has become the leading independent wireline service provider in the country.

Each of the following elements are essential ingredients to accomplish the company objective – to provide industry-leading completions execution and service quality combined with the best independent reservoir analytics.


SAFETY

There is not a job that is worth performing in an unsafe manner, no matter the opportunity or situation.  Horizontal is committed to the safety of our employees, clients, vendors, and the companies we work side by side with at the wellsite.  Our safety initiative plan begins at the top with management support and a zero tolerance philosophy. In addition to safety training, there are many safety process and procedures we conduct behind the scenes that add up to a significant difference in the overall safety management of our organization.

PEOPLE

Horizontal has developed more qualified crews than any other independent wireline company. Engineers and crew members that join our team go through a rigorous training qualification period. Additionally, during this breakout period, our employees are required to learn all procedures and best practices for Horizontal as well as show competency in regional specific operations.

Each of Horizontal’s new team members completes a highly selective and disciplined service quality training program. This comprehensive training contains a theoretical and hands-on portion to ensure the training is effectively transferred. Our career progression and training program has multiple levels of competency as employees train through the ranks of operator. Each promotion level has an associated level of testing to qualify the employee for that specific job position.

What our clients effectively see at the wellsite is the result of our training and culture; safe, competent, qualified pump-down crews who are eager to perform operations and are there to help your project be a success.

PROCESS

Each of our crews follows what we call the Horizontal Process. This innovative set of procedures tracks the job from the cradle to the grave and is designed to eliminate human error and provide a consistent, reliable service. The foundation of the process was born by combining the efforts of the deep-water process (developed for high tiered Gulf of Mexico work) with similar fundamental concepts from Health and Safety procedures like the design of RP-67. The Horizontal Process has multiple points for double checking critical components so that operations proceed safely and efficiently.

In addition to the Horizontal Process, our group believes strongly in full root cause analysis of all failures and misruns, an essential step in the continuous improvement of service quality.  The client receives these reports and any new lessons learned or best practices are communicated to crews.

An additional process that our clients appreciate is our quarterly Health, Environmental, Safety & Compliance (HESC) and Service Quality (SQ) review. These reviews cover key performance indicators, new technology, and are an opportunity for feedback and evaluation for both companies.

EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY

Horizontal works diligently to acquire and maintain the best equipment in the industry. Built explicitly for open- or cased-hole operations, each unit is a full-size logging carrier with a stretched office cabin for longer duration jobs. Each cell has a fit for purpose enclosed trailer for quick and proper equipment turn around on location.

VALUE

Our commitment to your company is to deliver the highest levels of safety and service quality to ultimately lower your total cost of development and operations.
