The demands encountered while drilling highly deviated wells include the effective control of torque and drag. We provide a complete line of lubricants for both water-based (WBM) and emulsion-based (OBM) drilling fluids. Rate of penetration (ROP) enhancers are used to speed the drilling process and save valuable rig time. These products are generally used as a continuous addition chemical to maintain a suitable concentration, keeping the bit from “balling,” and providing lubrication of the drillstring and formation cutting face.
Prevent differential sticking and avoid stuck pipe
Losing filtrate or whole mud to permeable, lower-pressured formations can have significant effects on the drilling operation long before differentially stuck pipe occurs. High torque and drag values, difficulty sliding and maintaining directional control, “stickiness” on bottom, increased pipe tripping times, and reduced weight on bit can lower drilling efficiency and increase wear and tear on equipment. These issues can be avoided by taking appropriate preventive measures.
If a stuck pipe incident does occur, our proven line of spotting fluids can reduce costly drilling delays in both land-based and offshore drilling environments. These additives are specifically designed to help you free stuck pipe. When differentially stuck, an effective spotting fluid is often the only difference between the timely completion of a project and very expensive downtime or a sidetrack.
Our lubricants, ROP enhancers, and stuck pipe additives can be used to:
Reduce rig time through faster drilling
Lower torque and drag values for easier sliding and better directional control
Free stuck pipe to help reduce drilling delays and related cost
