OS DRILL SLIP - Drilling Lubricant
Drilling fluid lubricity is a key parameter in achieving high ROPs. Drilling fluid lubricity directly affects power transmission to the bit and BHA. Excessive torque and drag leads to slow ROPs, drill-string failures and expensive fishing jobs and side-tracks. Drilling fluid lubricity is especially important in directional wells in both cased and open hole. A good lubricant can make the difference between success and failure.
OS DRILL SLIP is a natural oil based product for use as a lubricant in mud systems.
OS DRILL SLIP is manufactured from components which are biodegradable in an aqueous environment, and is easily dispersed in water.

OS DRILL SLIP is designed to alleviate the problems of stuck collars and pipe when drilling with water based fluids. It works by imparting lubricity to the system and thereby reducing torque. The optimum treatment level will depend on the individual system, but will usually be in the range of 1 to 2 lb/bbl of additive on the total volume of drilling fluid, and can be added to the system neat or diluted in diesel to give faster dispersion.
OS DRILL SLIP should be added at a point of good mixing.
OS DRILL SLIP is packaged in drums, net weight 180 kgs.
