Extreme operating conditions—high temperature and vibrations — require superior, reliable lubrication in order to prevent costly downtime. High-performance lubricants are designed for use in coiled tubing fluid systems in order to reduce metal on metal friction in the lateral portion of the well to enhance lateral reach. Innospec Oilfield Services has developed several high performance lubricants to reduce friction.
Innospec Oilfield Services (OFS) has developed a new, cost-effective coiled tubing lubricant, ILube-200S, that is specifically designed for pipe-on-pipe lubrication. ILube-200S is also compatible with other additives in coil tubing drill-outs and sand clean-outs, such as viscosifiers, anionic polyacrylamide friction reducers, biocides, and scale inhibitors.
