BESTOLIFE 3010 NM Special

BESTOLIFE 3010 NM Special


BESTOLIFE® 3010® NM Special is a non metallic, non conductive thread compound ideal for all rotaryshouldered connections in any drilling location.


Non metallic compound for all drill-string connections (drill pipe/tool joints/drill collars) plus premium metal-to-metal seal casing and tubing connections.


BESTOLIFE® 3010® NM Special is the third generation of the highly successful BESTOLIFE® 3000® family of compounds designed and developed to address the environmental concerns related to the use of thread compounds for rotary-shouldered connections in ecologically sensitive areas of the world such as the North Sea, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, the South Atlantic, Alaska, and Sakhalin Island. BESTOLIFE® 3010® NM Special combines the excellent low temperature application properties of BESTOLIFE® 3010® Ultra with superior downhole galling resistance and enhanced ecotoxicological properties to provide the ideal drillstring solution for all rotary-shouldered connections applications (drill pipe/tool joints/drill collars), irrespective of offshore drilling location. It is also suitable for use on metal-to-metal seal casing and tubing connections.

  • Applies easily to cold wet connections exposed to seawater in ambient temperatures as low as -49º F I -45ºC and yet provides optimum protection in the deepest, hottest holes. Will provide lubrication and protection to 400ºF/204ºC and the solids will protect to 1000ºF/538ºC.
  • Has the ability to prevent galling of contact surfaces (including non-magnetic materials) under high bearing loads and to form a continuous gasket between the shoulders of a rotary connection during make-up. This is achieved through the innovative combination of a variety of amorphous and synthetic graphite based materials, as first used in 3000®, interacting to form a seal when compressed between the shoulders during makeup to provide performance properties equal to the very best heavy metal compounds. This gasket-like seal prevents connection washout, even under high internal fluid pressures and the combined loading of directional drilling, to provide maximum protection in the toughest conditions.
  • Meets the performance requirements of many proprietary, metal-to-metal seal casing and tubing connections.
  • Approved running compound for VAM® connections. For more details, recommendations per type of connection, material and conditions of use, please refer to the VAM® recommended compound chart: of Running Compounds.pdf or liaise with your nearest VAM® contact.
  • Meets the current OSPAR Commission Harmonised Mandatory Control Scheme regulations for the protection of the marine environment of the North-East Atlantic/North Sea.
  • In November 2004 became the FIRST Category # 9 - Yellow Pipe Dope Registered in the Norwegian CHEMS Database for use offshore by Statoil ASA in the Barents Sea.
  • Subsequently registered in UK/Netherlands (DTI/CEFAS OCNS Category E/NL HMCS Prescreening Category: R) and Denmark (PR-No.1796806)
  • Contains biodegradable greases and synthetic lubricating fluids
