Wellbore Cleanup

Mitigate operational risk and reduce NPT using better wellbore cleanup

Baker Hughes wellbore cleanup and displacement technology enhances operational efficiency by reducing risk and nonproductive time. Our wellbore cleanup mechanical tools and chemicals remove the debris that interferes with normal operations without damaging the well structure. You can rely on our engineered, field-proven solutions for effective wellbore cleanup and debris management that ensure successful completion operations and maximize reservoir return.

Our complete suite of wellbore cleanup mechanical tools include products for displacement, casing cleaning, blowout preventer (BOP) and riser cleaning, and debris management.  Our engineered solutions include displacement simulation, torque-and-drag analysis, BHA load analysis, and vectored annular cleaning system (VACS™) prejob planning. Whether you’re working in land, offshore, or in deepwater wells, you can depend on us to save you time and money.


Vectored Annular Cleaning System (VACS) Technology

Effectively recover debris or junk in openhole or cased hole for reduced project risk and operation damage. This is the most reliable and cost-effective well cleanup solution.


X-Treme Clean XP Wellbore Cleanup System

Our cost-effective system for deep wells, deviated wells, and deepwater applications ensures a superior completion that reduces nonproductive time and maximizes production.


X-Treme Clean EP Wellbore Cleanup

Our system, used successfully in more than 2,500 jobs worldwide, decreases completion and workover risk in land, shelf, shallow water, and deepwater applications.


VACS G2 System

The VACS G2 system is a modular version of the field proven VACS system that offers easier handling and increased suction power for increased reliability and performance.


When you’re spending $350 per minute on a $500,000-per-day deepwater rig, you can be confident our global expertise enables you to work safer with minimized NPT.
