Drilling waste treatment process and treatment effect

May 29, 2021

The drilling industry strictly follows the environmental protection law and regulations regarding waste disposal, and clearly states that the arbitrary discharge of drilling waste is strictly restricted. So how to deal with waste during the drilling process? KOSUN actively responds to the national call to provide professional solutions for drilling waste treatment! KOSUN drilling waste treatment system includes: drying shaker, screw pump, environmentally friendly centrifuge, screw conveyor, and other solids control equipment that can be used for mud drying treatment.

drilling waste treatment
We know that in the process of oil exploration and production, a lot of waste will be left on the well site. These wastes are stored in the sewage pond of the well site. If the drilling waste is not treated thoroughly, it may pollute the groundwater and surface water, endanger the surrounding ecological environment, and may even cause serious pollution accidents.
In the process of waste drilling fluid treatment, it is processed from the source through solid control equipment-dehydration/water treatment/water recycling/filtration-mud recovery-solidification / biodegradation / thermal analysis / drilling cuttings reinjection four major steps. It reduces waste discharge and also saves drilling costs. At the same time, in the reprocessing of waste, the dehydration treatment plan is fully utilized, which not only effectively recycles water resources, but also reduces the water content of the discharged waste, reduces the volume of waste, and effectively protects the environment. Finally, the remaining solid wastes have effectively achieved the goal of zero waste discharge through technologies such as solidification, thermal analysis, and drill cuttings reinjection. At the same time, the use of solidification treatment on land and the reinjection of drill cuttings on the ocean also meet the actual needs of the drilling site.
