Product Sheet LUBE OB Oil-Dispersible Lubricant
Designed for use in all nonaqueous fluid applications that would benefit from decreasing the COF, drag, and potential for differential sticking.
LUBE OB oil-dispersible lubricant is designed for use in all nonaqueous drilling fluid applications that would benefit from decreasing the coefficient of friction (COF), drag, and potential for differential sticking in the wellbore. This lubricant optimizes the performance of oil-based drilling fluids used in extended-reach or complex-trajectory wells. It is also recommended for slimhole applications to increase effective WOB and ROP, which are frequently important considerations for the economic success of these wells.

Typical treatment concentrations of the LUBE OB lubricant are between 1% and 3% by volume. The product should be slowly added directly to the suction pit using a sufficient amount of agitation. Pilot testing is recommended to determine any effects on the system’s rheological properties for all applications and subsequent treatments.
The LUBE OB lubricant is available in 55-galUS [208-L] drums. These drums should be stored in the tightly closed original container in a dry, room-temperature, and well-ventilated location away from all heat or ignition sources. Protective equipment should be worn by all personnel when handling the lubricant.
