    ICoTA Canada has decided to to run a photo contest this year to generate some fresh visual content for the new website.

    Photos can be submitted to  Please include your name, the company you're with (if appropriate), a brief description of where the photo was taken and whether or not it was taken with a cell phone.

    Don't miss out on some great prizes.  We look forward to everyone's submissions!

    ICoTA Board

    The Prizes:

    Best Photo: Choice of free admission to the ICoTA Canada Roundtable OR the ICoTA Canada Golf Tournament (~$350 value) – must be used in 2016 / 2017.

    Best Photo taken with a Cell Phone: Free Admission to an ICoTA Canada Lunch and Learn / Technical Session or a 1 year paid ICoTA membership (~$50 value) – must be used in   2016 / 2017.

    5 Runner Up Prizes: Free Admission to an ICoTA Canada Lunch and Learn / Technical Session or a 1 year paid ICoTA membership  (~$50 value) – must be used in 2016 / 2017.


    Contest Rules:

    Photos must be submitted by July 01, 2016.

    The contest is open to current members and non-members.

    The photos must be industry related and should have a focus on coiled tubing / wireline / interventions, but all oilfield themed photos are welcome.

    The photos do not have to be current or recent – a great photo that you took while working at Fracmaster in the 1980s would be a welcome contribution, as would an amazing photo taken on a job you were on yesterday.

    You must have taken the photo.

    All judging will be done by the ICoTA Canada Selection Committee selected by the ICoTA Canada Website Committee Chair.

    The photos cannot show any proprietary technology not already in the public domain.

    Photos of ‘Train Wrecks’ will not be considered for the purposes of this contest.

    ICoTA Canada is given unlimited use of the photos for display on the ICoTA Canada website and for promotional and marketing purposes.

    Winners will be notified by July 31, 2016 so they can determine how to use their prizes in 2016.

    Results will be announced at the ICoTA Canada Roundtable in October, 2016

    SPE & ICoTA Intersociety Lunch

    Date: Tuesday, 19 January, 2016

    Speakers: Silviu Livescu & Tom Watkins

    Location: Calgary Petroleum Club

    Time: 11:30 – 1:00 pm


    Coiled tubing has been developed for its ability to perform remedial work on a live well. For more than 50 years, coiled tubing has mainly been an intervention technology used to maintain or increase production. It has evolved from a challenging engineering solution to a mature technology with a global market share of more than $5.4 billion in 2014, including the North America unconventional oil and gas market where coiled tubing is part of the well completion operations.In prior cycles, declines in rig activity have not affected the coiled tubing market immediately. However, the last year downturn has seen a dramatic change in the commodity business model of well interventions, in general, and coiled tubing applications, in particular. The coiled tubing industry, similarly to all other oil and gas sectors, is responding to the new market conditions through technical innovation. Recently developed intelligent coiled tubing systems combine real-time downhole data monitoring with additional capabilities to simultaneously provide downhole power, significantly improving operational efficiency and accelerating well recovery in all types of coiled tubing operations. From milling, stimulation, and well cleanouts to gas lifting, camera services, logging and perforating operations, these novel systems can provide accurate, real-time downhole monitoring of high-resolution depth correlation, differential pressure, and temperature data. The knowledge and confidence gained by using these intelligent coiled tubing systems drive the coiled tubing industry further.
