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.
