Drilling Waste Management

Safely and Efficiently Manage Drill Cuttings

Drilling Waste Management

Drilling Waste Management

Formation drilled cuttings can be handled by various methods, depending largely on environmental requirements, geographic location, and geological conditions. Cuttings must be transported and prepared prior to final disposition, which may include reinjection into subsurface formations. Optimal drilling waste management demands high performance in surface and subsur-face engineering analysis and unparalleled diagnostic expertise—before, during, and after the operation.

 

Improve drilling efficiency  and environmental compliance  with an integrated  solids-control system. The goal of all modern solids-control  systems is to reduce overall well costs  through the efficient removal of drilled  solids while reducing and minimizing  the loss of drill fluids. Additional goals  include worker health and safety and  environmental compliance. The key to designing the best systems  in the market comes down to working  with the rig designers, contractors,  operators and ship yards to provide the  best in class. To operate each type of equipment so  that the maximum separation efficiency  is achieved requires a lot of thought,  and many factors must be considered.  The quantity and sizing of equipment must  be specific so that the efficiency of the  solids-control system can be maximized  through data such as final volume of mud  accumulated while drilling, total volume  of solids removed and fluid dilution rates.  The greater percentage of drill solids  removed and drilling fluid preserved,  the higher the operating efficiency.
