The “HimLube Eco” lubricant additive for drilling muds is a product on the basis of fatty acid esters of vegetable oils. The absence of hydrocarbons in its composition makes it possible to apply HimLube Eco when drilling in the areas of elevated environmental risk: on offshore drilling platforms, in the conditions of pitless drilling, etc.
The HimLube Eco lubricant for drilling muds is delivered in steel barrels of 200 kg.
The lubricant HimLube Eco is designed for application in drilling muds used for well construction and workovers, with the view to reduce friction coefficient, increase drilling rate, and mitigate the risk of stuck drill pipes.
Optimal concentration of the HimLube Eco lubricant, to achieve the required antifriction effect, is 0.3-1.0% for fresh drilling muds, and 0.5-2% for mineralized and salt-saturated drilling muds, correspondingly. The HimLube Eco additive is compatible with all chemical reagents and substances used for preparation of drilling muds.
In the event of significant drags under high inclination angles, concentration of HimLube Eco in drilling mud can exceed 3% of the volume.
To obtain optimal results, it is recommended to enter the HimLube Eco lubricant in the following number of ways:
