Global-Tubing sets coiled tubing record

Coiled tubing record in North America

We are proud to announce our latest Coiled Tubing record in North America surpassing 30,000-ft of 2.625-in diameter. The string features an engineered makeup for extended reach operations, weighing at 165,000 lb (75 MT) and with a total combined tube and spool weight of 190,000 lb (86 MT). The string is in service and set to break lateral reach records in the MidCon area. Global Tubing continues to demonstrate its leadership in the market by designing and manufacturing the world’s longest and heaviest CT strings for challenging operations. #coiledtubing #innovation #engineeredsolutions

Coiled Tubing Best Practices: Corrosion Prevention

Coiled Tubing Best Practices: Corrosion Prevention

Constantly exposed to harsh environments, it’s no surprise to learn that coiled tubing strings are vulnerable to corrosion. Did you know that localized corrosion damage is one of the leading causes of premature failure? Including corrosion prevention as a critical part of your coiled tubing string’s routine maintenance program will help to extend life and improve performance. Check out our CT Best Practices on Corrosion Prevention to learn about the signs of corrosion and common cleaning tools we recommend.  View our CT Best Practices to learn more.

Northeast Colorado Flowlines and Gaslift

Coiled Line Pipe provides a better, faster and more cost efficient way to install X52C steel line pipe.

Project Overview

A large, independent, oil and gas company, based in Houston, TX had a field development that required a safe, quick, and cost-efficient steel flowline installation. There were 7 new wells that needed to be tied into a central gathering facility. Coiled Line Pipe was selected as the solution that provided the greatest cost benefit, highest safety potential and improved product performance as compared to the usual stick steel pipe.

Project Highlights

  • The field development required seven (7) new flowlines and one (1) gas lift pipeline to tie the new well back to the central gathering facility.
  • Global Tubing answered the needs of the customer by supplying 51,000 ft of Coiled Line Pipe from stock to deliver the entire quantity requested on thirty-four (34) spools.
  • The Coiled Line Pipe was strung onto the right-of-way in only 4.5 days, significantly faster than stick steel pipe.
  • Eliminated the need for at least 16 fittings along the route by sweeping the continuous lengths of Coiled Line Pipe around one of the P.I.’s and onto the well pads.
  • The entire pipeline length required only (32) welds to complete the same scope on the right-of way that would have required at least (1300) welds for traditional stick pipe for a 97.5% reduction
    in total number of welds.

Conclusion

Global Tubing’s Coiled Line Pipe supplied a no hassle solution for the field needs of the client. Cost Savings of over the steel pipe installation were delivered upon project completion.

By using Coiled Line Pipe, every client can enjoy the peace of mind that only steel pipe’s long history and specification compliance can provide and combine it with the cost savings of a spool-able pipeline.
