This year’s winners are Aramco Overseas Company and Zilift for the Well Initiation Service Tool. The Well Initiation Service Tool, WIST is a high efficiency, slim hole pumping system that is conveyed and powered through a wireline power cable to appropriate depth in order to lift high density kill fluid, thereby lightening the fluid column and allowing the well to flow naturally to surface.
