deployment system

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
An assembly of pressure-control equipment that enables the running and retrieval of long tool strings on a coiled tubing string in a live wellbore. The deployment system is configured to provide two barriers against well pressure as the tool string is assembled and run into the wellbore. Once fully assembled, the coiled tubing equipment is connected and the tool string is run into the wellbore. The process is reversed for tool retrieval.
