sand line

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A long cable, installed on most drilling and workover rigs, used when swabbing or bailing in the production tubing or wellbore tubulars. The sand line is typically stored and operated on a winch drum that is part of the rig drawworks. The sand line is capable of significantly higher tensile forces than slickline or electric wireline.
