Fishing Job for ESP Cable Recovery
Wellsite’s Permian operations team was called out to assist an operator with an ESP cable that had broken off of an ESP assembly during a tubing workover operation. The ESP cable separated from the tubing and the ESP assembly while the workover rig was pulling the tubing. The cable crimped and winded up, causing a major obstruction in the well. The operator attempted to retrieve the cable for more than a day but with minimal success.
Wellsite’s team was consulted, and after a detailed review, was hired to retrieve the cable. Once on location, Wellsite’s fishing supervisor briefed the applicable personnel of the retrieval plan and then initiated the execution of the operation. The ESP cable was quickly recovered and the operator was immediately back to work installing the new ESP assembly and production tubing.
