Effect of Low-Fluorescence Anti-Seize Lubricant on Rheological Properties of Water-Based Drilling Fluid
Water-based drilling fluids generally may cause high friction and torque values. Lubricants are usually chosen as friction reducers. In this paper we investigate the effect of a low-fluorescence anti-seize lubricant JXFQ-6 on rheological properties of the water-based drilling fluid at high temperatures. Rheological properties of different samples are evaluated according to the American Petroleum Institute (API) standards. The experimental results show that rheological behavior of the water-based drilling fluids is maintained in the presence of JXFQ-6 ranging from 1.0 to 10.0 wt.% at a temperature as high as 150 degrees C.
