I absolutely hate working with our coil crews.They are completely incompetent. Last year we have a "torture valve" wash out while trying to bleed the pressure off the mainline because the morons couldn't hit the zone. The valve washed out and blew the elbow right off of it and then the moron coil guy tryed to close in his real and cranked the wrong valve and blead off into the air, 60mpa or pressure on the coil. Blew the guy about 15 feet away from where he was standing and shot a combination of N2 and sand about 100 feet in the air. Pretty cool to watch but I am pretty sure that guy had some stains in his tighty whities when he was done. I'll take Technicoil anyday,those boys are awesome to work with.
