1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A technique used in the assembly of coiled tubing strings at the manufacturing plant. Prior to being formed, the string is assembled from flat steel strips joined by a bias weld that is angled across the strip joint at 45 degrees. When the tubing string is milled, the helical weld form provides enhanced characteristics of the tube at the weld site. These are significantly better than those achievable with the alternative butt weld technique.
