1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]

The maintenance procedures performed on an oil or gas well after the well has been completed and production from the reservoir has begun. Well service activities are generally conducted to maintain or enhance the well productivity, although some slickline and coiled tubing applications are performed to assess or monitor the performance of the well or reservoir. Slickline, coiled tubing, snubbing and workover rigs or rod units are routinely used in well service activities.
