History of Down Hole Cameras & Applications

by Gregg Linville
EV Down Hole Camera Services


Video logging is increasing every year. Global competition and increasing rig costs intensify the need for swift and accurate diagnosis of well bore problems.

Video dramatically reduces the time and expense involved with trial and error methods in diagnosing well problems. With proper preparation, video provides excellent graphic video footage in nearly every type of well condition.


Gregg begin his trek in the oil field in 1981 with NL McCullough production logging engineer and 1983 went with Pengo Wireline Services as a cased hole logging engineer; then in 1986 Schlumberger Jr. completion engineer and advanced his career in 1990 with DHV International – working on developing fiber optic system development.

Throughout his years with DHV, he helped pioneer the first fiber optic cable assembly applicable in high pressure deployment of fiber optics into oil and gas wells and received a patent for his design. In addition, Gregg had worked overseas with DHV International – which was then purchased by Expro- in areas such as the Middle East, India, Europe, South America, North Sea, and Africa.

Now, he works with EV Down Hole Camera Services as a Western Regional Manager since 2012. He also served in the US Navy from 1975 to 1980.
