• A directional well encountered severe doglegs, with kicks out to 25° and returning to 8° within a drilled distance of 300'; high torque was observed. TORKease was added to the freshwater mud system, with a resulting immediate drop in torque and drag levels, and an increase in penetration rates. Reports from the project report included the following comment: "We have used TORKease in other applications and feel that it is one product that truly does its job. …It’s not your run-of-the-mill snake oil treatment that we have seen come and go. We feel it has its place as a proven mud additive that is environmentally safe."
  • In the Rangely Field, a 0.5% concentration of TORKease was utilized as a preventative treatment in a troublesome area. Rotary torque and drag were reduced significantly, and pump pressure dropped from 1400 to 1200 psi. Before pretreatment sloughing shales were encountered; after treatment there were no more sloughing shales. "TORKease brought more cuttings to top with better quality than ever before".
  • TORKease was added to a freshwater mud system, on a well encountering significant doglegs and high torque. An immediate drop in torque and drag levels was observed, as well as a corresponding increase in penetration rates.

Only TORKease remains stable and decreases torque in our geothermal slim-hole, diamond coring operations where existing formation temperatures
exceed 500°F

Without TORKease on location to provide lubrication for our high temperature geothermal exploration tests, we shut down! 


If you improve TORKease any more, it will be so slick we won’t be able to keep it in the bucket!
