An Introduction to Coiled Tubing

This 7-hour course presents coiled tubing (CT) as a tool for workover, drilling, and completions services. It reviews conventional CT workover and completions applications, the properties of CT, its manufacture, the key elements of a coiled tubing unit, and subsurface tools for CT applications. A significant portion of the course covers mechanical and hydraulic performance of CT, including work limits, buckling, and fatigue. The course is intended for engineers, engineering technicians, field personnel or anyone interested in the history, applications, and benefits of coiled tubing. Participants will gain an understanding of the manufacturing process required to mill coiled tubing, the many applications of this versatile tool, the surface equipment for running it, subsurface tools, and the importance of job design and planning.

Objective and Goal:

The intention of the course is to give the student an understanding of coiled tubing as a well intervention tool.
