Federal OCS

  • On a highly deviated well being drilled on an offshore platform in the Santa Barbara Channel, torque and drag became excessive and stuck pipe was imminent. TORKease was added to the clay based mud system with immediate results; reduced torque and drag, and increased penetration rates. Well was completed to TD, and overboard discharge of the mud was allowed, per TORKease’s existing EPA approval for OCS use.

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

-New Mexico

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!
