Coiled tube drilling is an application used for revitalizing oil wells. A tube is placed down to the bottom of the well, sometimes over 1 km down, along with "soaps". The mixture of soaps and high pressure air or nitrogen fluidizes the well bed. Reavell compressors are usually used for this application and the model may vary depending on the flow and pressure requirements of the oil fields.
The compressors are usually mounted and installed as part of a packaged set on to the back of a flat bed truck to allow the unit to be easily transported around oil fields in different locations.
