Our CTES™ cable injector pumps cable into and out of coiled tubing while it is still on the reel for quick cable installation without reducing the fatigue life of the coiled tubing string. Using the system, a coiled tubing string may be lifted onto a platform without the cable inside, therefore reducing the total weight of the lift. The cable can then be installed before a job and removed after a job.

Our CTES coiled tubing cable installation system uses the following equipment to pump (inject) cable into a reel of coiled tubing:

  • Cable injector unit
  • Reel-mounted coiled tubing
  • Cable/wireline spooling unit


  • Skid mounted for ease of transportation offshore
  • No impact on fatigue life of coiled tubing
  • Fast (up to 200 ft/min)
  • All coiled tubing sizes
  • Small footprint (79 × 73 in.)
  • Installs wireline cable and plastic-coated cable while the coiled tubing remains mounted on the reel
  • Rugged, field-proven design
  • Third-party certification/registration available
