    IRP 21 - Coiled Tubing Operations, was opened for a full scope review in March 2018. Approval was provided by the DACC to remove drilling sections of the document during this review. The complete details of the revisions can be found in Appendix A of the draft document.
    Coiled tubing operations are upstream petroleum industry operations using specialized equipment to carry out workovers and drilling on oil and gas wells. Coiled tubing applications fit into two general categories: fluid conveyance applications (pumping) such as fracturing/acidizing a formation, removing sand, scale or wax and mechanical applications such as cutting tubulars or setting a plug or packer.
    The draft IRP includes information about coiled tubing operations including recommendations for:
    • Operations planning
    • Well Control Equipment
    • Accumulator Equipment
    • Coiled tubing specifications
    • Fluids and circulating systems
    • QA for Well pressure control equipment
    • Elastomeric seals
    • Well servicing operations
    Developer: DACC
    Sponsor Organization: CAPP and PSAC
    Current Status: Available for Industry Review (Closes March 25, 2021)
    Feedback: Feedback or comments for the draft IRP can be emailed to  An email confirmation will be issued.

    Secondary contractors unaffiliated with SPE want your business! Don’t be targeted by predatory companies selling hotel rooms or Attendee Lists who claim to be affiliated with SPE.

    The Woodlands Waterway Marriott is the Official Housing Vendor for 2019 CTWI, and the ONLY contractor authorized by SPE to contact you about housing accommodations. Experient is the ONLY company authorized to contact you about Registration and Attendee Lists rentals.

    If you receive phone calls or emails from any other company claiming to be the housing vendor for 2019 CWTI or claiming to sell Attendee Lists, please ignore them. If you are unsure, please contact Show Management for verification.

    Just wanted to make sure our members understand that there are some scams out there claiming the conference has moved online, etc!

    Our ICoTA Chapters have begun to take advantage of hosting webinars and virtual lunch and learns, and it has been fantastic to see the results.

    ICoTA Canada hosted its first online seminar at the beginning of the month, attracting 79 participants who have all shown an interest in attending similar virtual events. Following its success, the Chapter will host its next webinar on April 29 - High Strength Coiled Tubing - How Is Fatigue Life Affected By Slip Damage? This webinar will highlight the findings of some recent testing of quench and tempered coiled tubing and will compare the results to conventional coiled tubing.

    ICoTA Europe follows suit by hosting its first webinar on April 28, presented by TGT and Tullow. Free to attend for all ICoTA members, the two companies will present a case study where passive acoustics have been used to assess the suitability of a zone for Single Well Chemical Tracer Testing by evaluating how effectively targeted zones are in communication with the production string and how effectively adjacent zones are isolated from each other by the relevant completion components.

    As an association, we want to support our members as much as possible through this challenging time by continuing to host training events. The format may have changed, but we're delighted to see the same enthusiasm and engagement from our membership. We look forward to seeing you all at more virtual events soon.
