What’s new in coiled tubing ///

In the Bakken field surrounding Williston, N.D., a typical horizontal well consists of a 10,000-ft vertical section, and a 4,000-to-5,000-ft lateral section. As drilling and completion technologies have improved, lateral sections are now reaching 9,000 to 11,000 ft in length. As a result, CT providers are now being challenged to reach these extended depths, which, in some cases, can exceed a total of 20,000 ft. Sanjel’s CT team in Williston recently exceeded this depth twice.
