Chapter 19

Fishing in High-Angle Deviated and Horizontal Wells

Abstract

Successful fishing is much easier in a relatively straight well than in a highly deviated wellbore. However, it is still possible to perform a successful fishing job in a highly deviated wellbore if the proper approach is taken. Industry knowledge gained by personnel who have drilled many highly deviated wells, along with continuing developments in tools and techniques, have substantially reduced the number of fishing jobs required per well drilled and increased the success rate of those that are performed.
