Cerberus™ modeling and field operational experience prove that this unique design consistently eliminates bias-weld fatigue spikes for superior running footage. Customer-engineered SMARTaper™ tubing strings increase horizontal reach and add strength in high-fatigue zones while managing the overall weight of the tubing string. The result: You can make longer horizontal runs and more of them with a single string. Sizes and grades are available to handle the higher pressures and demands of extended-reach horizontal wells.

Revolutionary, patented coiled tubing technology

Allows optimization of string design based on well characteristics
Maximizes coiled tubing fatigue life
Enables extended horizontal reach
Effectively eliminates bias weld de-rating factors
While unconventional plays worldwide have created a boom in oil and gas activity, they present numerous challenges for the coiled tubing industry. Thanks to Global Tubing’s new SMARTaper™, customers have unprecedented opportunity to improve performance while conducting coiled tubing drillouts and other activities in extended-reach horizontal wells.
