EnviroLube®

Exceptional lubricity for water based drilling fluid

ENVIROLUBE® is a highly effective environmentally safe lubricant for water-based drilling fluids. It is designed to enhance the coefficient of friction, while reducing torque and drag.

  • Compatible in all drilling fluids
  • High affinity for metal
  • Minimal effect on rheology
  • High operational temperature stability – 300°F
  • Minimizes bit balling
  • Water dispersible
  • Excellent for coiled tubing applications

ENVIROLUBE® has an affinity for metal and reduces the friction between the drill string and wall cake and between the coiled tubing and casing wall.

SUNS ENVIROLUBE® results in a COF reduction >80% in a dispersed fresh water drilling fluid at 2% concentration. Using a Generic Mud #8 the reduction was 74.5% at a 2% concentration. The reduction in a polymer/brine was approximately 52% at 2% and >75% at 3% concentration.

The impact on produced water has also been significant with a >34% improvement at 2% concentration. All testing indicated SUN’S ENVIROLUBE® is readily dispersible and compatible with all systems.

SUNS ENVIROLUBE® is designed to be successful in solving problems relating to angle building, angle dropping, kick-off point difficulties, and mud motor drag in conventional and unconventional wells.
