ABERDEEN, UK – M-I SWACO announced at Offshore Europe the release the Well Scavenger vacuum debris removal tool, which is designed specifically to capture and remove debris from the wellbore during intervention activities.

Based on a modular design, the Well Scavenger tool comprises a single-nozzle fluid-driving engine, a debris screening module, and one or more debris chambers. The engine module internally generates and maintains an efficient localized reverse circulation flow that achieves maximum lifting velocities without the need for high pump rates from the surface. The debris screening module filters the fluid to capture larger debris and is equipped with an internal magnet assembly to collect ferrous material.

According to M-I SWACO, the tool will enable clean out and retrieval to be completed in one trip by placing the packer plug retrieval tool in the bottomhole assembly.
