Abstract A new mud lubricant, Lubra-Beads has been used to reduce torque and drag in deviated holes, improve wire line operations, improve casing running times and, in some cases, improve rates of penetrations. Treatments have varied from batch treatments to treating the entire system. The type of treatment used depends on the problem encountered. The case histories presented described ways in which Lubra-Beads mud lubricant has been used to reduce torque and drag and increase penentration rates.
