LA-7000®

HIGH-PERFORMANCE BIO-BASED LUBRICANT FOR DRILLING APPLICATIONS

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

LA 7000® is a bio-based lubricant designed to reduce the coefficient of friction (CoF) in high performance water based muds (HPWBM). As high-angle, extended reach wells continue to increase, rotational torque and drag have become critical challenges for water-based muds. LA 7000® raises the bar for WBMs CoF to those only achievable in oil-based muds. LA 7000® out performs industry standard offerings in friction reduction between the drill pipe and casing and between the drill-pipe and the wellbore. LA 7000® has no hydrocarbons, is non-toxic, ultimately biodegradable and is stable at high temperatures.

TESTING

Industry leading reduction in coefficient of friction
COF range: 0.063—.075
Torque reductions: 73-80%

APPLICATIONS/FUNCTIONS

Applicable in both fresh water and salt water muds;
Reduces torque, drag problems in high angle and horizontal drilling;
Increases ROP and reduces bit balling;
Performs well in any metal on metal applications;
Helps free stuck pipe when spotted correctly;

CoF data obtained below are from tests run on the OFI digital lubricity tester at 60rpm and 150 inch-pounds torque.
