SUPER HORNET Flowback Circulation Tool

In operations such as deepwater casing landing strings where fluid recovery is critical, the SUPER HORNET™ Flowback Circulation Tool saves time by eliminating the need to connect and disconnect the top drive from the drill string repeatedly. Using an air-operated control system, the SUPER HORNET can be extended and/or retracted without interfering with the driller’s operations.
