[…] Drilling waste utilization creates significant challenges for the industry due to the diversity of drilling sludge composition. The amount of drilling cuttings from one well is conditionally taken as 120% of the total well volume (not considering the volume of flushing media). The chemical and mineralogical composition depends on both the type of mud and the type of rock to be drilled. The particle size distribution also depends on both the rock and the type of drilling mud. […]
Thermal methods of drilling sludge and drilling mud treatment from the table above are the most effective due to their universality. At present the market is gradually growing the supply of equipment for thermal processing of drilling waste. […]
Positive experience of using TDP-2 Thermal Decomposition Units for treatment of drilling waste proves the prospects of its universal application at oil and gas fields. This solution will ensure the transition to pitiless drilling, thus relieving the producing company of the need to equip and register the waste disposal facility, as well as its subsequent costly operation.
