nGLIDE™:

A New Generation
of Drilling Lubricants

nGlide™ is a nano-lubricant specifically developed to overcome common torque- and drag-related problems encountered in horizontal and extended reach drilling in high-temperature reservoirs. It provides effective lubrication in all types of water- and brine-based drilling fluids. Field usage shows up to 30% increase in average ROP.

nGlide™– How It Works

nGlide has treated more than 120 wells in the Bakken formation of North Dakota, showing ROP increases of 15%, lubricant usage reduction of 30% and laterals drilled up to 20% faster all leading to lower NPT.

nGLIDE™

nGlide contains nanoparticles that coat metal surfaces and fill in asperities creating a smooth tribo-film capable of drastically reducing Coefficient of Friction and wear.

LUBRICATED

Standard liquid lubricants form a film on the surface of the metal, but do not help reduce asperities. Coefficient of Friction is reduced, but surface wear can still be high.

UNLUBRICATED

In the absence of effective lubrication, the liquid layer has to support the full load applied between friction pairs. This leads to high Coefficient of Friction and surface wear.

Next-level Performance

nGlide™ is a product of two years of extensive product development, both in the lab and the field. It routinely outperforms other competitors in a variety of tribology tests and does not cause foaming or ‘cheesing’ often seen with other products. nGlide™ is fully bio-compatible and bio-degradable, and tolerates high salinity and temperatures up to 150 °C (300 °F).
