DACC IRP Volume #21 - Coiled Tubing Operations

May 24, 2017

IRP 21 (2017) was sanctioned in May 2017, following a limited scope review. The key revisions include reformatting to match the current style guide, updated references, and most importantly, a revision of the Well Servicing Pressure Categories. These revisions align the IRP 21 Well Classification System with global API Standards.

The purpose of this document is to ensure that guidelines for coiled tubing (CT) operations are in place and readily available for all personnel involved in the development, planning, and completion of CT operations.

IRP 21 is intended to supplement existing standards and regulations. It is also intended to establish guidelines in areas where none existed previously.

The intended audience for this document includes oil and gas company engineers, field consultants, coiled tubing personnel, drilling and service rig personnel, well testing and fluid hauling personnel, other specialized well services personnel, coiled tubing manufacturers and jurisdictional regulators.

This IRP applies to all coiled tubing drilling and coiled tubing well servicing operations performed in a wellbore. Both overbalanced and underbalanced operations are covered.
