Targeting friction for serious results
Encapso® doesn’t just claim to increase rates of penetration (ROP), decrease drag and reduce both rotational torque and friction in water-based horizontal drilling applications. It has the numbers to back it up.
Through its innovative “encapsulated” design, Encapso® proactively targets friction by bursting only under custom-engineered pressure and temperature conditions. This results in superior performance downhole. Encapso® has been proven in test wells to:
- Reduce friction by over 70%
- Increase the rate of penetration (ROP) by up to 50% compared to standard liquid lubricants
- Decrease torque by up to 42%
- Decrease drag by up to 50%
*Results based on laboratory testing, testing at the Catoosa Testing Facility and/or head-to-head commercial well trials.
