Coil Tubing Applications 1 General
Advances in coiled tubing manufacturing techniques and stress/fatigue prediction, have reduced the risk of coiled tubing failure.
In principle, live/flowing well can be introduced in an uninterrupted (no joints) length of tubing. However, there are three basic limitations:
- Life limits - primarily due to the fatigue by bending that occurs to the pipe when being run on/off the reel and over the gooseneck. Other factors such as internal pressure cycles, corrosion due to exposure or . . .
