  • Available with high torque connections reducing the need for reduced strength crossovers

Reducing Non-Productive Time

  • A robust wellbore clean-up is proven to reduce nonproductive time during the completion of the well
  • Reduces premature failure of completion equipment by debris which can interfere with valves, electronics and other hardware


  • BOP Jetting Operations, during pre-completion wellbore clean-up operations where it is run in tandem with a OWS Short Time Jetting Tool or other similar tool to capture any dislodged debris which can otherwise fall downhole
  • Can be run below a wear brushing retrieval tool or during wellhead cleaning operations
  • Can be run during riser clean-up and displacement operations to prevent debris from falling downhole

  • Optional, a Short Time Jetting Tool or MAGStar Jetting Tool may be spaced around 1 stand above the XTRactR™ BOP Junk Catcher
  • With the XTractR™ BOP Junk Catcher below the wellhead, the BOP can be jetted and any debris which is dislodged will be trapped inside the tool and can be retrieved at surface
