The Malaysian energy company Scomi Energy has announced the development of three graphene-enhanced lubricants called Plat Drill, Confi Graph Lube and Hype Graph Lube. The lubricants, based on graphene nanotechnology, help prolong the lifespan of the diamond drillbits used in oil drills. The products improve on the efficiency of the drilling process and reduce maintenance cost. Scomi Energy has patented this technology with its partners and is in the process of rolling it out to its customers in FY 2016 (which actually means by March 2017).

Since Scomi is collaborating with Graphene Nanochem on the development of the PlatDrill, It is reasonable to assume that the Confi Graph and Hype Graph are also the fruit of this cooperation. Graphene Nanochem is presumably in charge of the technical development while Scomi will most likely handle marketing and sales.
