Selection of a particular product is dependent on application and customer requirements. Roemex representatives should be contacted for advice on product selection.
Lubricants are used during drilling and coiled tubing operations to reduce torque (rotary friction) and drag (axial friction) in the wellbore.
Roemex can provide several lubricants for these applications; RX-72TL is the latest of our wide range of lubricants. Due to increasing focus on efficient drilling practices plus challenging extended reach, high angle and deep water wells being drilled today, lubricants are becoming a necessity for drilling, completion, wellbore clean-out, wireline operations, coil tubing operations, running production tubing etc.
RX-72TL is a blend of non-ionic and anionic surfactants in an aqueous solution which has an excellent environmental profile.
In addition to the product’s excellent environmental profile, the product is also not classified for transportation meaning that it can be shipped without a dangerous goods declaration.
RX-72TL is designed to reduce metal/metal and metal/formation friction in wellbores. It is compatible and soluble in most completion brines and exhibits good compatibility with nitrile and other common elastomers. RX-72TL also demonstrates good thermal stability
RX-72TL is normally deployed in seawater or completion brines. Typical applications are:
