Drilling equipment that is lost or malfunctions downhole causes costly time delays. Thankfully, quality fishing tools often allow for a successful and speedy recovery of equipment. The type of fishing tool also has an effect on the future usability of the stuck or lost equipment. But the nature of the job is that fishing tools get beat up. With every effort to preserve your drilling equipment investment, Hardy Fabrication re-fabricates and also manufacturers fishing tools for every type of retrieval process:
- Inside grappling devices (spears) made or re-made by Hardy have a precisely-threaded shaft for accurate attachment to the missing tool to reel it back to the surface.
- Outside grappling devices (overshots) surround the drilling tool with minimal invasion to preserve the tool during retrieval. They are also equipped with devices to remove surrounding material that may be restricting the tool in the wellbore.
We specialize in carbide for mills, shoes, & wipstock components helping you meet your goal of preservation and timely retrieval of tools. Working with Hardy Fabrication saves you time and money for successful completion of the project.
