Fishing Operations


There are a number of problems that can occur while drilling a well. Whether a drill string breaks and falls to the bottom of the well bore or a bit breaks, accidents happen. Even pipe or a tool can fall from the rig floor into the bottom of the well.

This stray equipment that has fallen into the well is referred to as fish or junk, and regular drill bits cannot drill through it. Should a fish fall into a well, fishing tool is required to remove it. In order to perform fishing on a well, drilling must be shelved and special fishing tools employed. Each tool is specially crafted to perform a specific function, or retrieve a certain type of fish and this is where Hamik Engineering comes into the picture.

We have professionals who can recover lost pipe either through spear, or an overshoot.
