Product Sheet LUBE 167 Low-Toxicity, Water-Dispersible Lubricant
Decreases the coefficient of friction in all water-based drilling fluids, which lowers torque and drag in the wellbore.
LUBE 167 water-dispersible lubricant is designed to decrease the coefficient of friction in all water-based drilling fluids, which lowers torque and drag in the wellbore.
It also has a unique wettability characteristic that lowers the potential for bottomhole assembly (BHA) balling and contains no hydrocarbons.

LUBE 167 lubricant blends easily into all mud systems. It does not foam and can be added to the mud system through the mixing hopper or directly to the surface system wherever good agitation is available.
LUBE 167 lubricant should be used at an initial concentration of 1% to 3% by volume (3.5–10.5 lbm/bbl [8.6 to 30 kg/m3]) for optimal performance. For higher mud densities, higher concentrations of LUBE 167 lubricant are normally required.
After the initial treatment, periodic treatments should be made to maintain the desired concentration. Higher concentrations can be necessary for pills and special applications. Treatment levels and product usage depend on the rate of penetration, solids-control equipment, and dilution rates.
Bioassay information is available upon request. Handle as an industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions described in the safety data sheet.
LUBE 167 lubricant is available in 55-galUS [208-L] drums.
Store in a dry well-ventilated area. Keep container closed. Keep away from heat, sparks and flames. Store away from incompatibles. Follow safe warehousing practices regarding palletizing, banding, shrinkwrapping, and stacking.
