Completion and workover programs now use snubbing as the preferred strategy to protect the formation from contamination and reduce the cost of well construction. In Canada, the snubbing industry has grown from three snubbing companies with 12 units in the late 1970s to more than 100 snubbing units operated by over 14 companies and is still growing steadily.
