Downhole Drilling Fluid Treatment

Major Operator – Canadian, Texas – July, 2012
“We solved existing torque & drag problems in this highly deviated well.” – Company Man
Direct Results:
  • ProOne reduced torque from 15,500 ft./lbs. to 9,700 ft./lbs. (a direct reduction of 37%)
  • ProOne increased ROP from 22.75 fph to 25.50 fph (increase of 12%)
  • Reduced drill curve time from 64 to 30 hours
  • Torque maxed out. With ProOne, hole reached TD
Savings:
  • 2x Trip Outs @ 60,000 each
    $120,000
  • 2 Drill Bits @ $15,500 each
    $31,000
  • Reduced Drill Curve Time – 34 Hours Faster (64 to 30 hours) @ $2,500 per hour
    $85,000
  • ROP @ Curve to TD 4,437 ft. @ 25.50 fph
    (Increase of ROP 12% Savings 21 hours x $2,500)

    $52,500
  • No Hard-banding Needed!
    $12,047
  • (Magnets Stayed Clean)
  • Gross Savings

Case Study 01
Major Operator – Eddy, New Mexico – 2013
Longest Lateral in New Mexico History = 19,770ft.
“In 25 years in the oilfield, I have never seen anything like ProOne. To lay this much 5” drill string for 12,000 ft. of the lateral should take twice the hook load in this tough formation.” – Company Man
Direct Results
  • TORQUE- 50% reduction. Maxed out from 30,000 ft./lbs. to 15,000 ft./lbs
  • R.O.P – Increase of 28% from 41 fph to 57.5 fph
  • TRIP OUT – Decreased drag
Tripped out @ 15,287 MD Hook Load – 400,000 lbs. – Without ProOne
Tripped out @ 18,181 MD Hook Load – 260,000 lbs. – With ProOne
“We experienced a significant drop in torque (50%) and increase in R.O.P. (28%) – Company Man
