Industry Article Debris Management
Technologies reduce drilling NPT, tool failures.
This line of specialized tools is designed to recover debris that cannot be circulated out of the well, either mechanically or magnetically. Usually, these tools are run as part of the main wellbore cleaning string. They can also be used in upper well cleaning or as "catching" devices during packer or whipstock retrieval.
Debris Recovery Tools Offerings
BHA outfitted with casing cleaning tool and openhole magnet minimizes trips, reduces operational risks, and collects 21.2 kg [46.6 lbm] of large debris.
Openhole magnet attached to BHA removes 63% and 80% of total collected ferrous debris from two wells.
Operator captures more than 4,700 g of BHA-clogging debris in shale formation.
Workstring filter protects critical BHA equipment, enabling operator to drill 392-m sidetrack in less than 100 hours.
