Coiled Tubing is one of the most common technologies used for well intervention on a daily basis throughout the oil industry during drilling, completion, and mainly production phases of oil and gas wells around the world. This course covers the surface and pressure control equipment, the bottomhole assembly components, the details of the different types of interventions performed with Coiled Tubing and how to deal with fatigue and corrosion. Participants will also learn to calculate the string operating limits and the volumes and rates during nitrogen interventions.The final part presents an extensive coverage of emergency responses and contingencies to deal with in a wide variety of scenarios. A generous amount of time is spent in practical exercises, and technical concepts are enhanced with pictures, videos and numerous real field cases and problems. Participants will gain the knowledge to actively and efficiently participate in Coiled Tubing intervention's planning, design, and/or execution.
Drilling and completion engineers, production engineers, surface/subsurface engineers, operations engineers and service company managers, field engineers, supervisors and operators and those professionals willing to expand their knowledge in coiled tubing and nitrogen interventions planning, design and/or execution.
