Coiled Tubing Operator

Job Overview

You’re a reel expert. That’s because you drive and operate a vehicle with an enormous reel around which long metal pipe is spooled. You use this coil tubing in oil and gas wells to do everything from stimulating the flow of oil or natural gas to removing obstacles in a drilling operation.

As a member of the oilfield services team, coiled tubing operators drive and operate vehicles equipped with coiled tubing, essentially a long pipe spooled on a large reel. Coiled tubing is used to perform tasks within a well, such as pumping fluids to stimulate the flow of oil or natural gas, removing obstructions, and deploying materials and tools that can be used for measuring well conditions. Coiled tubing is used during the drilling, completion, maintenance and abandonment or remediation of oil or gas wells.

Coiled tubing operators must be able to transport equipment to and from the well location, safely rig in and operate the equipment, perform day-to-day inspections, servicing and maintenance of equipment, and complete all required paperwork accurately and on time.

Transferability information for this occupation is available on the Oil and gas well services operators career.
