Coil Tubing Rigs

We operate one of the largest coil tubing fleets in Canada. Coil tubing rigs provide completion, stimulation and work-over services on long-reach horizontal and vertical wells. Our fleet is comprised of Generation I, II, III and IV coil tubing rigs, which are differentiated by their capability to service wells with varying depths and well pressures. The varied limit, capacity and coil diameter of our coil tubing fleet make this equipment ideally suited to work in all facets of a customer’s horizontal well completion and work-over program.

Coil tubing rigs are typically used in the completion and stimulation of a horizontal well in the following areas:

Pre-Fracturing – Coil tubing is used to complete pre-fracturing confirmation runs and/or place the tools used to isolate a portion of the wellbore during fracture stimulation.

Fracturing – Dependent on the design of the customer’s fracturing program, coil tubing can be used to frac-thru-coil, complete annular fracturing, convey and actuate sliding-sleeve tool assemblies or perform tubing conveyed plug-and-perf operations in the well.

Post-Fracturing – Once the fracturing has been completed, coil tubing is used to complete post-fracturing confirmation runs, clean-outs and mill-outs/drill-outs of ball & seat systems. Coil tubing can also be used for work-overs and to convey third party instrumentation and evaluation tools to confirm the results of the fracture treatment.



Masted and conventional configurations

    • Masted Configuration
      Gen II, Gen III

    • Conventional Configuration
      Gen I, Gen II, Gen III, Gen IV

    • Gen I
    • These conventional rigs offer versatility for a wide range of specialty applications utilizing smaller pipe diameters and unique wellhead configurations. Paired with ECWS 45 tonne crane units, our team of expert oilfield operators can execute the most obscure job requirements safely and effectively, providing flexibility unmatched by jointed pipe applications.

    • Gen II
    • Gen II was the first masted coil tubing rig built on a trailer for Essential and has been continually perfected ever since.  The built-in mast eliminates the need for a crane, giving these units a small footprint and fast rig up time.  For well depths <5,500m, this rig is capable of having any well up and running in the least amount of time possible.  One conventional style rig is also available.
