Propel Global is one of the world’s leading pipe recovery and well intervention specialists. We have also gained the recognition of being one of the most reliable manufacturers and service providers in specialty chemicals.


Our team in this segment has been involved in the energy industry in Malaysia and the Asia Pacific region since 1975 and are industry professionals equipped with substantial oil and gas experience in addition to technical expertise crucial to the field.

Pipe recovery and well intervention is critical to mitigate downtime costs for our clients, which can range anywhere from USD 10,000 to 1,000,000 a day. Our award-winning business segment offers cutting edge solutions that will help our clients increase hydrocarbon recoveries and business profitability.

One of our key offerings is the MCR Radial Cutting Torch (RCT), one of the slimmest tools available to resolve a stuck pipe that also has the added advantage of being non-explosive and zero flaring.

A stuck pipe cripples drill rig operations and every hour it remains stuck translates to costly downtime. Daya Maxflo, a company of Propel Global Berhad, has the Global License from MCR Oil Tools to deploy the RCT to over 100 countries.

The RCT can be used across various O&G operations such as drilling, production, and well services. It can cut, among others, drill pipes, casings, tubings, and coiled tubings. The RCT has been used in pipe recovery for clients like Petronas, Shell, ExxonMobil, ARAMCO and ConocoPhillips.


Our wireline intervention sub service enables safe well control during wireline operations. The technology allows wireline operations through a side entry and can be used in multiple operations such as pipe recovery jobs, pressurised cement evaluation, pump down operations, Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) logging, ThruBit logging, and slickline operations. This simple design provides simultaneous entry for wireline and drilling fluid.

Other services in pipe recovery and well intervention include an innovative multiple operations system, as well as a visual diagnostics service to resolve wellbore issues.

The latter delivers detailed, distilled information almost instantaneously upon deployment, putting unparalleled standards of visual diagnostics into well operator hands and empowering them to identify, understand and resolve complex wellbore issues with speed, confidence, and accuracy.

It also eliminates guesswork and assumptions on actual well conditions. Among the common challenges encountered by the client’s wellbore issues are perforation, corrosion, fish, restriction, sand, water and leaks.
