Series 10-AG Synthetic Arctic Grade

Biodegradable Wireline Lubricant/Sealant

Resistant to CO2 and H2S

Series 10-AG (arctic grade) is formulated for use in the most extreme cold climates and is the most technologically advanced wireline lubricant/sealant available.

Series 10-AG is the ONLY cost effective, fully synthetic, biodegradable, non-toxic, arctic grade, CO2/H2S resistant, condensate and down hole chemical insoluble wireline lubricant/sealant on the market. Because Series 10-AG is insoluble in condensate and other down hole chemicals, its lower viscosity will still provide for reduced friction, wireline protective barrier, excellent sealing properties while at the same time allowing the operator to reduce head pressure and reduce amount of lubricant/sealant required on the job.

Benefits

  • Biodegradable/non-toxic
  • Extreme low temperature
  • Insoluble in condensate, brine water, and down hole chemicals
  • Low viscosity reduces pump head pressures
  • Pour point -55oC (-67F)
  • Resistant to CO2 in concentrations up to 40%
  • Contains no silicone -Silicone oil is soluble in condensate and has very poor lubricating properties
  • Excellent lubricity
  • Reduces splattering and dripping at well location
  • Prolongs wireline life expectancy
  • Excellent thermal and oxidation stability
  • Has no hazardous transportation limit and is not considered hazardous waste

Application

Series 10-AG is recommended in extreme cold environments for braided wireline, cables, and wire rope where harsh CO2 and H2S corrosive conditions exist. Recommended for applications where ambient temperatures reach 50 C (-58F).

The product line is designed for use in deep, high temperature, corrosive oil & gas wells, up to 400°F, in the presence of H2S and Co2. Unlike conventional grease seal products, SGS-700 series maintains viscosity at elevated operating temperatures. A down hole corrosion inhibitor and EP additive package are incorporated and provide unequalled protection.

Application

For use with standard wireline grease injection units.

Features

  • Completely biodegradable
  • Non-hazardous
  • Protects against H2S up to 500,000ppm
  • Protects against CO2 up to 50%
  • Fully additive treated

Performance Evaluation of SGS-700 Series Product Description

The 700 series is made from a 100% synthetic polymer which is biodegradable, has no reportable quantity (see note), and is not considered hazardous waste. The products are offered in viscosity grades of 10, 12, 16, 20, & 24 to meet a wide range of operating temperature and handling requirements. Each viscosity grade contains an additive package which includes an EP (extreme pressure) additive and a down hole corrosion inhibitor.

Product Features

The synthetic polymer oil used in the formulation of Lubchem SGS products provides good lubrication qualities, excellent high temperature stability, and is insoluble in down hole environments. The result is a product that provides barrier protection from corrosive fluids and gasses, maintains viscosity at elevated temperatures (better than traditional hydrocarbon based fluids) and remains on the wireline, thereby reducing costs. The SGS-700 series synthetic polymer base oil has been selected due to its unique properties which include the following:

  • SGS-700 series maintains viscosity under temperatures encountered at bottom hole environments.
  • SGS-700 series is insoluble in down hole environments.
  • SGS-700 series is highly impremeable, and is impervious to CO2, H2O, O2, H2S and water vapor.
  • SGS-700 series is non-volatile, has high oxidation stability and is extremely resistant to shear.

Corrosion Inhibitor Package

The synthetic polymer base oil is an excellent sealant which provides a formidable barrier against wear and corrosion to wire line in highly corrosive and high temperature applications. The carrier oil in the SGS-700 series formulations are considered a barrier or protective layer designed to keep the corrosive elements away from the metal. However, it is not the sole source of portection. Lubchem SGS-700 series formulations also incorporate high performance down hole corrosion inhibitor (Lubchem IS-3018) along with an excellent EP (extreme presssure) package. The corrosion inhibitor, Lubchem IS-3018 is effective at levels as low as 5ppm. The inhibitor chemically bonds to the wire line surface and provides an inhibitor film one molecule layer thick. This inhibitor layer will not degrade under any concentration of H2S, Acids, O2, and CO2.
