Case Study: Drilling Rig Gains Drill Time Per Gallon

Reported: 9.7% Gain in Drill Time Per Gallon

Bill Barret Corporation started using AFC in May 2008. They measured an increase in drill time (hours per gallon) that equated to a savings of 16.3%.

Bill Barret also reported that all of the engines running on fuel treated with AFC had stopped smoking while under load by the end of the test. Although the usual black puff of unburned diesel was and will continue to be visible during the brief periods of acceleration, all smoke disappeared once each engine was operating under load at peak RPM.
