In the oil and gas industry, stainless steel coil tubing, also called flexible tubing or CT, is a long continuous string of tubing spooled on a large reel. The coiled tubing sizes normally ranges from 1 to 3.25 in (25 to 83 mm) in diameter. The metal coil tubing is used for interventions in oil and gas wells and sometimes as production tubing in depleted gas wells. Coiled tubing is often used to carry out operations similar to wire lining. As one of the professional coil tubing companies in China, YUHONG GROUP provides quality coiled hoses/lines for sale at great prices. Feel free to contact at any time!
The main benefits of a steel pipe coil are the ability to pump chemicals through the coil and the ability to push it into the hole rather than relying on gravity. Pumping can be fairly self-contained, almost a closed system, since the coiled hoses are continuous instead of a jointed pipe. For offshore operations, the 'footprint' for a coiled tubing operation is generally larger than a wireline spread, which can limit the number of installations where coiled tubing can be performed and make the operation more costly.
