Stuck Pipe & Fishing Operation


Stuck pipe is a long-standing problem in the drilling industry. It is estimated $200 - $500 million is sent annually as a result of stuck pipe. This amount could be drastically reduced by preventative action and rapid response to keep minor sticking from developing into severe sticking.
