The Pedcor Series
18-4000 Horizontal Production Nipple allows the operator to run a well
under pressure. Install all wellhead components, shift a sleeve and
begin production up the coiled tubing
Production Nipple is available for all coiled tubing sizes with a slip
type connection on top to attach to the coiled tubing.
In operation, the
tool is attached to the coiled tubing at surface and is completely
sealed, not allowing any flow up through the coiled tubing.
The tool enters into
the horizontal wellbore under pressure. Once at the desired depth, the
coiled tubing may be hung at surface using a Pedcor Safeset Coiled
Tubing Hanger. Once the hanger is installed the remaining wellhead
assembly may be installed.
The production nipple
may be opened by pumping fluid or nitrogen down the coiled tubing to
shift the sleeve in the nipple, thus opening eight (8) ports to allow
for production up the coiled tubing. The flow area through the ports is
equal to the flow area through the coiled tubing. The sleeve is retained
in the horizontal production nipple. No components or debris is dropped
into the wellbore.
