tail pipe

1. n. [Well Completions]
The tubulars and completion components run below a production packer. The tail pipe may be included in a completion design for several reasons. It can provide a facility for plugs and other temporary flow-control devices, improve downhole hydraulic characteristics, and provide a suspension point for downhole gauges and monitoring equipment.
