High-performance water-based drilling fluid system
Reduce torque, drag, shale swelling, and dispersion in environmentally sensitive shale.
The HydraSpeed ROP-enhancing primary lubricant can be used in all types of water-based drilling systems when drilling highly deviated, extended-reach, or horizontal wells in onshore applications.
Demonstrating a coefficient of friction factor of 30.8 compared with 39.8 for a higher-cost lubricant, the lubricant has a nonhydrocarbon chemistry that provides the benefits of
The HydraSpeed lubricant is easy to mix and can be added to the mud system through the mixing hopper or directly to the surface of the system in pits that provide good agitation.

RheoProfiler rheometer and DrillOps solution visualized fluid and drilling measurements in water-based mud.
Lowers coefficient of friction, achieving significant reductions in torque and drag levels.
Used in all types of water-based systems when drilling highly deviated, extended-reach, or horizontal welIs.
High-performance drilling fluid enables efficient drilling and logging operations while reducing costs for each section by 2% and 14%, respectively.
