Improving coiled-tubing serviceability in sour environments through metallurgical design ///

Limitations on fatigue performance of high-strength coiled tubing, particularly in welded areas, provided the motivation to introduce a new manufacturing process, using metallurgical principles. The objective was to generate microstructural improvements, to extend coiled tubing to even higher strengths in sour environments.
