CoastaLube® CT

Exceptional coil tubing lubricity  using SUN’s PAO technology

CoastaLube CT is a high-performance pipe on pipe lubricant for brine and water-based drilling systems, utilizing a polyalphaolefin (PAO) synthetic hydrocarbon base.

CoastaLube CT is a high performance, environmentally safe lubricity additive. PAO’s are synthetic and contain no aromatics or adverse properties of traditional mineral and diesel oils.

  • Reduces torque and drag
  • Minimizes bit balling
  • Decreases friction and wear
  • Minimizes differential pressure sticking
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-sheening
  • Base fluid thermal stability >600°F (315°C)
  • No adverse effect on rheological properties
  • Broad range efficiency
  • Replacement for diesel, mineral-oil-based fluids or other synthetic base lubricant additives
  • Meets EPA discharge requirements
  • No effect on LC50 value of active fluid system

CoastaLube CT enhances the performance of the fluid by preferentially placing a thin film coating on the coil and casing which acts as a boundary layer lubricant in high temperature and pressure applications. CoastaLube CT is readily dispersible and compatible with fresh and brine-based systems.

CoastaLube CT has proven successful in solving problems relating to kick-off point difficulties and other extended reach applications.
