underground wiring

I want to run 150' of 24' deep underground wiring, using an existing wellhead as the power source. Do I need to install any circuit protection other than what already exists for the well?

underground wiring

you description is lacking a lot to be able to give you any sort of answer. What is this branch circuit for? What is the well fused at?

Generally it isn't a good idea to tap onto a dedicated circuit such as the circuit for the well.

This question is is a big toss up due what voltage you are running on the well and where the pressure switch is located ?

There are few specfic rules we have to follow so once we get more information the more details we can help.
