Coiled tubing-conveyed artificial lift and cleanout systems optimize costs and production ///

Traditional rod-driven lift systems were designed for conventional vertical wells. Today, many wells have challenging characteristics that may wear significantly on downhole equipment, resulting in sub-optimal well production and high maintenance costs. Over time, producing wells may require frequent workovers, due to equipment fatigue and output changes. Presently, conventional workover rigs must perform these operations. Before any workover procedures are initiated, the well’s production must be contained. This procedure usually requires killing a well with fluid, which can lead to sustained production degradation and, potentially, permanent loss of well productivity.
