Stray or damaged equipment that falls or breaks inside a wellbore―referred to as fish or junk—must be retrieved by a fishing operation using specialized tools.

Inefficient fishing operations may take days. And during that time, no drilling or workover operations can occur.


To minimize nonproductive time (NPT) and fishing costs, it’s critical to have the right fishing equipment and expertise available when you need them.
