Coiled Tubing Well Tractor®


The original Well Tractor was in fact a version designed to run on Coiled Tubing. Harnessing the fluids pumped from surface it is an essential tool for overcoming helical buckling or washouts, pulling the coiled tubing deeper intothe wellbore. It is compatible with certain downhole tools allowing operators to pass coil and tools through small restrictions as well as operate in large diameter boreholes. Extend your reach with the CT Well Tractor.

Read Case


This Tractor is a fluid-driven conveyance solution designed to extend the lateral reach of coiled tubing in horizontal, deviated and extended wells. The Well Tractor CT overcomes well-known CT issues such as excessive friction, limited reach and buckling. In tandem configurations the CT Well Tractor can apply up to 7,000 lbs of force. This enables access to extreme, extended reach wellbores as well as past wash-outs in open hole sections.
