Information for CT Rig Companies
Increase the range of services you can offer to your clients by offering them Directional Coiled Tubing Drilling (DCTD). We will provide all the drilling expertise that you need to be able to plan and execute a drilling job using your existing CT assets. Working in partnership with you, we can offer a winning solution to all stakeholders.
Because CT technology is all based around pressure control at the wellhead, underbalanced drilling with coiled tubing is a far more efficient method than using the more conventional, rotating head technology from a standard jointed pipe rig. In fact CTD is the only technology that can ensure that underbalanced conditions are maintained at all times. Your existing expertise with dealing with wellhead pressure can be applied to underbalanced drilling whereas a regular drilling crew needs to upskill to do the same task.
WHAT WE DO
- AnTech Integrated Management (AIM) Service can provide you with full integrated project management services and be the one point of contact for the operator if required.
- Our proprietary and patented CTD BHAs can drill hole sizes between 3-5/8” and 8-1/2”. We also provide the surface equipment to maintain the tools on location and data acquisition systems to run the BHAs.
- Feasibility modelling, our proprietary ATLAS software for CTD modelling predicts parameters such as well paths, tubing forces (WOB) and hydraulics (hole cleaning).
- Our Products Division can provide you with a complete conversion kit to make your CT unit completely wireline enabled.
- We can offer you and your team dedicated CTD training at your facility or at the customer’s location.
WHAT YOU DO
- Provide the rig or CT unit and crew
- Provide the e-coil, the wireline can be installed by a Coiled Tubing manufacture before shipping or on location if required. We would require a 7-conductor heptacable and we generally run coil sizes from 2-3/8” to 2-7/8” depending on the well profile.

Long term CTD projects often use dedicated rigs or combine the ability to handle coil and jointed pipe in a hybrid format. But regular CT rigs with a mast, tower or simply a crane deployment can be used effectively.
Your clients, like all operators face the challenge of declining production on all their wells. Drilling horizontal laterals from existing vertical wellbores, of which there are many, helps them to extract more oil and gas from existing reservoirs. More production than they may think is possible, if they have only considered regular overbalanced drilling.
Partner with us to offer new service to your clients. We will support your sales force to create a winning offering for all concerned.
Coiled Tubing Drilling vs Conventional drilling: Don't compare apples with oranges
People sometimes say to us ‘Why drill with coil when I can get a cheap jointed pipe rig to do the same job’. In answering, it’s important to be clear what the ‘same job’ means. If the objective is simply to a drill hole, then a regular rig might be better. But if the objective is to drill a hole, do it efficiently and do it without damaging the reservoir then underbalanced drilling with coil has no equal.
Our Directional CTD BHA’s run on regular 7-conductor wireline inside coil of between 2-3/8in and 2-7/8”. Coil can be ordered from the mill with the wireline pre-installed.
We can provide the necessary conversion kit to terminate
the cable at each end and hook the wireline to our Albacore surface data acquisition system.

Talk to us. We can help you screen opportunities. Not every drilling opportunity is suitable for CTD either because of well geometry, its potential production or geology. Some wells can turn into stars, some will never produce enough extra production to warrant an intervention.
