Friction? Let it slide
Tim Wagner, ProOne, USA, introduces a new lubricant that addresses the major drilling challenge, friction, amongst other characteristics.
Horizontal and vertical drilling operations both face the same major drilling challenge: friction. Successful lubricant use can solve this problem, along with aiding the downhole operation. Operators seek out the solution to costly problems such as freeing stuck pipe or finishing a well without hole collapse, with a new lubricant product promising significant cost savings by eliminating excessive trips, and saving drill bits and mud motors.
