Tools

roller stem

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A downhole tool used on slickline operations conducted on a deviated wellbore to provide additional mass to the tool string. Incorporated in the assembly, rollers reduce the friction encountered as the roller stem is run along the wellbore. This, together with the additional mass, helps achieve deeper slickline penetration of deviated wellbores.
