Coiled Tubing and Its Applications
This 1-day course presents an introduction to coiled tubing (CT) as a tool for workover, drilling, and completions. It provides an overview of conventional CT applications, the properties of CT, its manufacture, surface equipment and subsurface tools. A significant portion of the course covers mechanical performance, including working limits, buckling, lockup and fatigue. There will also be a discussion of drilling technology and hydraulics.
Why You Should Attend
Coiled tubing has many applications in the oil and gas industry. Anyone involved with exploration and production should be familiar with the basics of this versatile technology.
Who Should Attend
This introductory course is appropriate for those who are new to coiled tubing, and for anyone who would like to refresh or expand their knowledge.
