Coiled Tubing Equipment
Definition - What does Coiled Tubing Equipment mean?
Coiled Tubing Equipment is a well intervention unit on which the coiled tubing is mounted and injected into the well. It consists of coiled tubing reel, a power pack to provide hydraulic power to the unit, a control cabin comprising of all the controls and instrumentation, an injector head to guide and inject the coiled tubing and a pressure control system for well control.
Petropedia explains Coiled Tubing Equipment
During oil and gas exploration and production activities, well workover and intervention processes have to be conducted in order to make the production process efficient and increase the life of the well. Coiled tubing operations are carried out on the surface as well as sub-sea wells, where drillship or semi-submersible equipment is brought into use. The coiled tubing equipment enables all kinds of oil well operations including milling, drilling and fracturing to be performed. The coiled tubing equipment is injected in the wellbore as a part of one of the well workover and intervention tools. The coiled tubing equipment runs down the wellbore over slickline, or coiled tubing or electric line. It is a cost and time-effective solution for well intervention operations in comparison to conventional work over rigs.
