Coiled-Tubing Unit

Online Only Content

National Oilwell Varco (NOV) introduced its new Genesis ST2438 four-axle trailer-mounted coiled tubing unit at the 2018 SPE/ICoTA Coiled Tubing and Well Intervention Conference. The Genesis ST2438 unites design ingenuity with advanced coiled-tubing equipment and technology, giving service companies a new option for challenging North American coiled-tubing applications. A new wet kit provides suitable hydraulic and electrical requirements for full operation and uses improved hydraulic filtering techniques, while the high-visibility control cabin provides the operator with expanded line of sight for spooling and a panoramic view of the wellsite. The HR-6100 injector mounts onto a hydraulic tilt stand at the rear of the trailer, allowing tubing to remain stabbed during transit. The injector has a continuous pull capacity of 100,00 lbs at a maximum speed of 160 ft/min and a snubbing capacity of 50,000 lbs. The unit is optimized to maximize tubing payload and legally carries up to 24,000 ft of 2⅜-in. coiled tubing with a dry tubing tare of 110,000 lbs. This means that the unit is structurally capable of carrying the largest tubing load possible into the most diverse group of basins—those in high-activity areas across Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Ohio, Colorado, and Wyoming—without exceeding axle and tire ratings.
