Protects wellbore and drilling BHA from debris and fines travelling through the drillstring.
Metallic debris and magnetized particles are present in almost all wellbores because of drillpipe and casing wear through string rotation, BHA component failure, or previous milling operations. The MAGNOGARD magnet is engineered for any openhole application with the potential for downhole debris, which can compromise current or future operations.
This magnet is run as an integral part of the drillstring to capture and retain metallic and magnetic debris from the wellbore. Its slick OD allows the tool to be rotated and reciprocated in the open hole without damaging the formation or the tool itself.
The MAGNOGARD magnet reduces premature bit wear and BHA exposure to metallic, magnetic debris, or junk by capturing and retaining debris. Its advanced design ensures that all captured debris is retained out of the flow path, enabling maximum fluid bypass.
Designed to be run above the BHA, this magnet features a tight magnetic field, so you can safely run the tool close to sensitive magnetic BHA equipment, such as MWD and LWD technologies.
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.
Recovery facilitated the successful running and setting of liner hanger, offshore UK.
