EvoLube® G drilling performance enhancer is an extremely effective lubricant blend. EvoLube G is a central component of Newpark Drilling Fluids’ Evolution® high-performance water-based drilling fluid system. Engineered using Six Sigma techniques, EvoLube G optimizes potential performance improvements over previous EvoLube generations.
EvoLube DPE reduces friction in the Evolution system to oil-based mud (OBM)-like lubricity. Accordingly, EvoLube DPE is especially effective in horizontal applications where it minimizes torque and drag, thereby enhancing transmission energy to the bit and increasing rate of penetration (ROP). When used in combination with EvoVis® viscosifier, EvoLube DPE is especially beneficial in stabilizing non-reactive shales.
EvoLube DPE is an effective performance enhancer for all water-based systems and is ideal for high-temperature applications due to its greater than 400°F (204°C) thermal stability. EvoLube DPE can be used in any type of waterbased drilling fluid. Its wellbore lubricating qualities are enhanced in fluids where the overall solids content – and particularly the management of drilled solids – are maintained at optimum levels. EvoLube DPE is particularly effective when used in systems formulated with low clay content or in clay-free formulations, such as the Evolution water-based drilling fluid system. EvoLube DPE is PDC bit compatible.
EvoLube G is added directly to the fluid system in concentrations of 0.5-6.0% by volume to achieve desired lubricity. Additions of EvoVis can further enhance results.
