Baker Hughes was looking for a magnet to be installed beneath the logging tool to collect the swarf and provide a clean casing for the logging tool. Innovar recommended using an MD 5500 magnet, which also has a brush attached in front of the magnet for cleaning purposes.
By applying the MD 5500 magnet in front of the logging tool, the Innovar magnet was able to secure most of the magnetic swarf, keeping the swarf attached to the Integrity eXplorer™ to a bare minimum. This resultet in reduced time on tool set up and therefore, reduced rig time.
“It really helped clean up the well so that the metal debris sticking to our tool was kept to a minimum. For that reason, it is highly likely that we will use it again for future operations.”
