LUBRICANTS FOR DRILLING, STIMULATION & COMPLETION APPLICATIONS

Drilling lubricants help reduce friction. The drill bit and drillstring experience severe stresses when drilling different formation types. Using a lubricant can help lower torque and drag, thereby improving rate of penetration (ROP). Directional drilling can be difficult when using water-based drilling fluids (which have lower inherent lubricity than oil-based fluid systems) and the addition of a drilling lubricant (or drilling lube) helps maintain steering control and response.

Our lubricants are based on natural and synthetic chemistries including Esters, Glycols, Natural Oils and Blends. They are formulated for both water-based and oil-based drilling fluids to improve well efficiency.

DRILLING LUBRICANTS

Shrieve markets a range of specialty lubricants for drilling operations and in clear-fluid completion applications where a brine lubricant may be required. Our products include lubricants for general purpose, extended-reach drilling (ERD), high temperature wells, coiled tubing projects, and to aid with side-tracks and laterals.

BENEFITS OF DRILLING LUBRICANTS

Drilling lubricants have a range of benefits which support drilling applications:

  • Reduces drill bit and drillpipe wear
  • Improves drilling performance

PORTFOLIO

ShrieveLube 707 

A specifically engineered and formulated lubricant designed for Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) in both water- based and oil-based muds. It contains strong metal wetting surface active agents for boundary lubrication. 

ShrieveLube 707A

A specifically engineered and formulated lubricant designed for Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) in both water- based and oil-based muds. It contains strong metal wetting surface active agents for boundary lubrication. 

ShrieveLube 757W

A non-sulfur, highly concentrated, environmentally safe synthetic lubricant specifically engineered and designed for Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) in water-based drilling muds and as a coiled tubing lubricant for fresh water fluids. It also provides heat transfer properties and corrosion/moisture inhibitor properties in water-based drilling fluids. ShrieveLube 757W has reduced lubricity coefficients by over 80% in most water-based mud systems when run at 2% by volume, and over 86% when run at 3% by volume.

ShrieveLube 758

A winterized, multiple component blend designed as a lubricant for Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) in water-based drilling muds and as a coiled tubing lubricant for fresh water fluids. It has surfactant properties that coat the metal surfaces to create a lubricating layer.

ShrieveLube 759

A polyoxypropylene/oxyethylene polymer in a polyalkylene glycol base fluid that is soluble in fresh water and heavy calcium chloride brines for use as lubricant in drilling applications. It can also be used in hydraulic fluids and refrigeration lubricant applications. ShrieveLube 759 has surfactant properties that coat the metal surfaces to create a lubricating layer.

ShrieveLube 762

A blended proprietary lubricant for brines, designed for coil tubing and drilling fluid applications. This blend provides effective pipe on pipe friction reduction and has an acceptable environmental profile. ShrieveLube 762 easily disperses in brine fluids to simplify mixing procedures.
