Lubricants

Only highly effective lubricants that significantly lower the metal on metal coefficient of friction reduce torque and drag.

Greenwell’s Quick Line™ of lubricants have the lowest coefficient of friction compared to other drilling fluids. Quick Line’s nano-bead technology allows operators to reach the last plugs in the horizontal interval without sticking the coil tubing unit.
