NOV develops 140-ksi, sour gas-resistant coiled tubing

National Oilwell Varco (NOV) recently developed 140-ksi specified minimum yield strength (SMYS) coiled tubing, or CT140. Because the target market for high-strength tubing is high-pressure well intervention and completions, sour gas compatibility testing was performed. The testing program verified that while using chemical inhibitors, the tubing/inhibitor system was not susceptible to sulfide stress cracking. In this video from the 2017 SPE/ICoTA Coiled Tubing and Well Intervention Conference in Houston on 21 March, Kevin Elliot, NOV Product Engineering Manager, discusses the development process that was undertaken, as well as the resulting mechanical properties and fatigue life of CT140. For more information about this project, please see SPE 184806, “Development and Compatibility Testing of Coiled Tubing With 140-ksi Specified Minimum Yield Strength.”

Gender diversity session focuses on setting inclusion goals, moving from talk to action

Women have traditionally been underrepresented in the oil and gas industry, but many companies and individuals are now working to change that. Increasing the number of women in the industry’s workforce starts with attracting and hiring women into the industry.

Ms Mehnert participated in a panel session on gender diversity at the 2017 SPE/IADC Drilling Conference in The Hague, The Netherlands, on 15 March. In this video from the conference, she explains some of the barriers women still face in the ...
