Another year has passed with strong depression in the oil and gas industry with a direct effect in the well intervention arena including coiled tubing activities. The depression is evidenced in the decrease of active coiled tubing fleets as well as the number of jobs that service companies completed during the year. Today, an industry recovery is observed in certain geographical areas, and the coiled tubing incumbed companies foresee new opportunities, as coiled tubing offers a competitive rig-less solution that can drive efficiency in operations and cost reduction when properly planned, designed, and executed. But this recovery also brings a new paradigm, where a flatten oil supply curve is changing expectations and the industry may need to adapt to more conservative oil prices.
