Product Description

DireCT™ pipe-on-pipe friction reducer is an extremely effective lubricant blend in Newpark’s proprietary ResurreCT™ coiled tubing system.

Benefits Benefits

DireCT pipe-on-pipe friction reducer is a proprietary lubricant blend that is especially effective in horizontal applications where it lubricates coiled tubing and casing, thereby allowing increased weight to the bit. When used in combination with AttraCT™ surfactant, DireCT minimizes friction resulting from metal-on-metal tubular contact. As a result, longer lateral sections are completed during coiled tubing operations.

Application Application

  • Adheres strongly to metal surfaces
  • Temperature stability greater than 400°F (204°C)
  • Enhances lubricating qualities in fluid systems where overall solids content is kept at optimum levels
