PENETREX™ rate-of-penetration (ROP) enhancer (55 gallon drum)
PENETREX™ rate-of-penetration (ROP) enhancer is designed for use in water-based drilling fluid systems such as the PERFORMAX™ high-performance water-based system. The organic, surface-acting ROP enhancer forms a hydrophobic coating on the bit, bottom hole assembly (BHA), and cuttings, reducing balling and accretion. The minimization of this buildup reduces the tendency of the BHA to vibrate and leads to an overall improvement in ROP. It also works effectively with the Baker Hughes Talon™ high-efficiency PDC drill bit for faster drilling, superior directional control, and enhanced durability.
An initial treatment of 0.25 gpm directly to the pump suction is adequate, but it can be increased by up to 5–6% volume, depending on the ROP achieved, amount of shale encountered, type of mud system, and the interval length.
