1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]

The depth at which a tubing or coiled tubing string that is stuck in the wellbore is free to move. When the tubing string must be cut to enable recovery, the free point should be known to ensure retrieval of the cut tubing. This enables remedial action to be taken to resolve the sticking mechanism on the portion of the string below the cut.

See: coiled tubing string
