Tubing can simply be wound up; it does not require a section-by-section disassembly and re-assembly when tripping. Additionally, making connections requires intermittently interrupting circulation within the wellbore increasing the possibility of creating a build-up of cuttings within the wellbore from particle settling. With CTD, continuous circulation can be maintained at all times (Yang,…
