Title: Selectably elevatable injector for coiled tubing

Abstract: A selectably elevatable coiled tubing injector is described that is suitable for a mobile self-contained unitized coil tubing rig for the drilling and workover of petroleum wells. The selectably elevatable coiled tubing injector includes a mechanism for positioning a trailer mounted coiled tubing injector either in a first stowed position on the deck of the transport trailer or in a second position resting on an elevated rig floor of a drilling rig. Furthermore, the selectably elevatable coiled tubing injector includes a further mechanism for selectably elevating the injector above its second position on the rig floor while clamping the tubing in order to provide additional tension on the tubing string or to raise the tubing deployed within a well.
