High-Temperature Drilling Lubricant for Rotary Drilling or Coiled Tubing

DRILL-LUBE MDA-2800 reduces drilling torque and drag, minimizes pipe sticking, and increases bit life. The most effective application is in oil-based mud (OBM) deep and deviated wells. It meets and consistently exceeds requirements specified by NPDES, pertaining to Gulf of Mexico discharges, and does not increase toxicity of the base mud, LC-50 of 465,685 ppm at 5 volume %. DRILL-LUBE MDA-2800 is also non-foaming, nonfluorescent, non-surface active and compatible with other typical drilling mud components. DRILL-LUBE MDA-2800 can be added directly to the mud hopper or to the mud pit. DRILL- LUBE MDA-2800 should be kept in closed drums or bulk containers to avoid contact with air or moisture when not in use. To facilitate handling, it may be heated to 130° F (54° C) without adverse effects. DRILL-LUBE MDA-2800 should be maintained between 80-100° F. Exposure to 0° F for a prolonged time period will solidify. To return the material to its original condition, cold drums should be warmed to 80-100° F. Blending temperature should not exceed 130° F

Blended with 5% emulsifier, DRILL-LUBE MDA-2800 is also an excellent lubricant for coiled- tubing, rendering 70% friction reduction in metal-to-metal contact at 1% level in CT fluid. The water-based mud (WBM) containing 1% of DRILL-LUBE MDA-2800 retains adequate rheology viscosities and gel strength, and excellent lubricity or friction reduction after being aged (AHR) for 16 hours and at either 150° F, 250° F, or 350° F.

symptoms/effects, acute and delayed
Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed Treat symptomatically.
General information Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect themselves.
5. Fire-fighting measures
Suitable extinguishing media Water fog. Foam. Dry chemical powder. Carbon dioxide (CO2).
Unsuitable extinguishing media Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.
Specific hazards arising from the chemica During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed.
Special protective equipment and precautions for firefighters Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.
Fire fighting equipment/instructions Move containers from fire area if you can do so without risk.
Specific methods Use standard firefighting procedures and consider the hazards of other involved materials.
General fire hazards No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted
6. Accidental release measures
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures Keep unnecessary personnel away. For personal protection, see section 8 of the SDS.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up Large Spills: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Cover with plastic sheet to prevent spreading. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or earth and place into containers. Following product recovery, flush area with water.
Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination.
Never return spills to original containers for re-use. For waste disposal, see section 13 of the SDS.
Environmental precautions Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground.
7. Handling and storage
Precautions for safe handling Observe good industrial hygiene practices
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities Store in original tightly closed container. Store away from incompatible materials (see Section 10 of the SDS).
8. Exposure controls/personal protection
Occupational exposure limits No exposure limits noted for ingredient(s).
Biological limit values No biological exposure limits noted for the ingredient(s).
Appropriate engineering controls Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.
Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
Eye/face protection Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles).
Skin protection
  • Hand protection
Wear appropriate chemical resistant gloves. Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove supplier.
