Fishing Job Packer Recovery

Packer Retrieved

Wellsite’s Permian operations team was requested to assist a Permian operator with retrieving a stuck packer. After several failed attempts by the onsite team, the operator contacted Wellsite’s experienced team to obtain advice. After reviewing, Wellsite’s Permian operations team was asked to arrive on location as soon as possible.

Upon arrival, Wellsite’s fishing supervisor received all applicable information, conducted his own assessment, and created a course of action for retrieving the packer with a spear. The appropriate spear was available from Wellsite’s fishing tool trailer on location and the initial retrieval attempt quickly commenced. Once at the depth of the packer, the spear tagged the fish. After assessing the set down and string weight, the team knew they had the fish. Once all pipe was removed, the spear was pulled onto the rig floor with the packer in tow.

Reverse/Fishing Operation

Wellsite was requested to assist an operator with a fishing job consisting of parted tubing. Two of Wellsite’s reverse unit/fishing operators were mobilized, along with one of several high performing JWS340 pumps, a tank and a 2.5 power swivel. In addition to the parted tubing in the well, the ESP pump was also down hole. During the parting of the production tubing, the torque and force of the separation caused the ESP electric wire to bind up and stack on top of the remaining tubing, anchor and ESP pump. The additional production equipment down hole increased the difficulty of the fishing job. The Wellsite fishing team was able to quickly assess the situation and devise a plan to retrieve the fish. The plan was successfully executed, allowing operations to resume.

Parted Tubing with Rods Inside

The Wellsite Fishing & Rental Services’ Permian team recently arrived on location to tubing that parted at a pin screwed into the wellhead. To make matters worse, the rods and downhole pump were still in the well.

The Wellsite operator began fishing out the rods inside the tubing, securing 13-90 joints per trip. In an attempt to pull the tubing, a chemical cut was made below anchor, but the tubing was twisted around itself in the bottom joint, causing the fish to drag and increase weight. The fish was successfully recovered, along with all of the production tubing.

ESP Gas Separator Recovery

A diamond burning shoe and wash pipe extension were run to burn over the remaining half of an ESP gas separator left in the wellbore. During the milling operation, the fish began spinning and ceased to make more hole. The bottomhole assembly was pulled from the wellbore with the fish wedged in the burning shoe, resulting in a successful removal of the fish from the wellbore by the Wellsite Fishing and Rental Services Fishing operator.

Dropped Tubing

A Permian Basin operator contacted Wellsite Fishing & Rental Services to assist with fishing tubing dropped down hole with the pump still in the tubing. This combination caused the tubing to split and corkscrew towards the bottom of the string. The Wellsite fishing operator utilized an overshot to tag and latch on to the top of the fish. Wireline was rigged up with a free point tool to confirm tubing movement data. Once movement was confirmed, wireline was run back in hole with a chemical cutter to execute a cut in the tubing, right above the fish. The chemical cut allowed the operator to retrieve part of the tubing in order to expose the remaining fish. The Wellsite fishing operator then ran in hole with a burn over shoe and joints of wash pipe, burning over the remaining fish in the wellbore. Once the burn over operation was complete, the fish was retrieved.

Another successful fishing job executed by the experienced Wellsite Fishing & Rental Services team.
