I have a question on the Crosby well, number 251932, in Vernon Parish. The last post for this well on Sonris was:
11/06/2019 Drilled 12 1/4" hole to 14,901'; stuck; backed off @ 14,755 and worked stuck pipe; unsuccessfully.
my question is can this well be salvaged? or is it unrepairable? Thanks to anyone who can answer this.
Yes they can either set a whip stock and drill around fish left in hole or set cement plug and drill around as well. It’s pretty common to side track around a fish left in the hole. Rather then spending the extra time and money trying to fish out bha.
Thank you for your answer. It sounded pretty bad.
Thx for reply Joshua..
I see where sonris added a few more words to end of post dated November 6: Free point and prep to run 9 5/8” casing.
Free point will identify where the "fish" is free and not stuck. Knowing that, they can "blow off" the fish (cutting the fish at a point above where it is stuck) and pull the "free pipe" out of the hole. Looks like they then plan to run the 9.625" casing before doing any sidetrack work.
Adding a lot of cost here to salvage using this wellbore - but better than abandoning the hole!
Thx RM,, hope they can salvage and move forward.
They should be able to move ahead - for a price! Operators do this all the time.
It takes a LOT to totally junk a wellbore and make it useless! Just cure the problem with time and $$$$$$$$$$$$
