Did you know that stick pipe improves hole cleaning efficiency? Actual hole cleaning can be a challenge for coil, due to the lack of rotation of the tubing string and reduced annular velocity. These factors limit the ability to bring debris to the surface. Stick pipe’s larger diameter and rotation creates a viscous coupling effect that carries solids from the side of the wellbore up to the high side, where the fluid stream’s flow rate is greatest, improving wellbore cleaning and production.
Axis is routinely drilling out wells from 18,000 to 26,000 feet. Download our updated white paper to learn how we optimize long lateral completions with advanced stick pipe drill outs.
