production string

1. n. [Well Completions]

The primary conduit through which reservoir fluids are produced to surface. The production string is typically assembled with tubing and completion components in a configuration that suits the wellbore conditions and the production method. An important function of the production string is to protect the primary wellbore tubulars, including the casing and liner, from corrosion or erosion by the reservoir fluid.
