HydraSpeed ROP-Enhancing Primary Lubricant | SLB


ROP-enhancing primary lubricant

Red, white, and orange fluid.
HydraSpeed lubricant coating drill bit.

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

  • lubricity
  • wellbore stabilization
  • filtercake enhancement.

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.
