Definition - What does No-Go Landing Nipple mean?
No-Go Landing Nipple is the deepest nipple location that provides a no-go barrier to protect the tool string from being dropped below the tubing string. The location is included generally at predetermined intervals to authorize the installation of flow control devices. It is categorized into three major divisions:
- D-series No Go Landing Nipple
- Top No Go Landing Nipple
- Bottom No Go Landing Nipple
It allows locking, landing and sealing of locks with attached flow control devices. These nipples are suitable for various applications that work under different environment and pressures.
