Drilling Fluid Lubrication
• what are the incumbent specialty lubricants that are used in water-based drilling fluids in the middle east?
• what drives the use of one lubricant vs. Another (e.G. Environmental regulation, mud system composition, geology, known performance benefits)?
• who sells the lubricants? What are the general wholesale and retail price ranges?
• which regions/geographies heavily use radiagreen eme salt? What are the product benefits and limitations? Who sells this product?+3 Other Responses
Good handling of sensitive shale formations and apply the procedures for good shale inhibition.
-total loss of circulation.
-abnormal formations pressures companied with salt water and/or gas influx and high density mud weights required for well control (up to 155 pcf â20 ppgâ using barite mud or up to 180 pcf â24 ppgâ using hematite),high down hole temperature (up to 300 f).
-calcium and/or carbonate contamination.
-apply good hole cleaning procedures while drilling high deviated wells (>35áµ) using the tandem pills (low viscosity and weighted high viscosity of 10 pcf over the mud weight sweeps of a minimum cover of 200â - 500â of the large annulus size).
-stuck pipe problems (either mechanical or differential) and the procedures done for freeing the pipe as grease pills and acid jobs.
-completion procedures and different brine systems such as:

Looking for someone to provide information and opinions related to the companies involved in offshore drilling, with focus on the companies involved, safety concerns and the use of drilling mud in the 1950s to the mid-1980s
my firm represents a company which has been sued, as part of a large group of defendants, for injuries alleged to have resulted from asbestos exposure on offshore oil rigs in the gulf of mexico. My client's involvement is as a company renting a rig for use in the gulf and as the employer of the plaintiff.
We are looking for as many consultants as would be needed to cover several areas of inquiry, including the specific responsibilities of the various companies involved in the setup and use of the rig, the products used, their purposes, a description of the various jobs the workers would do, ih concerns, safety concerns and other areas of import in each specific case.
We have one with immediate need and several others pending but not with imminent deadlines. This would include review of materials, consult with my office, probable preparation of a report providing opinions, potential deposition and/or trial testimony. I hope to hear back soon. Thank you.+9 Other Responses
