Friction Reducers

Excessive frictional pressure is common in extended reach operations. When this occurs, operators are not able to pump at optimal rates for effective hole cleaning and cuttings transportation.

Greenwell continually evaluates friction reducers under varying conditions and develops new products that are the best performers in the market. Based on unbiased, third-party lab results, Greenwell’s Wet Frog™ friction reducers reduce friction better than competing polymers and allow operators to pump higher flow rates at lower costs.
