Harmless Treatment Process of Waste Drilling Mud While Drilling

Jun 29, 2021

Waste drilling mud is one of the main pollution sources in the petroleum and natural gas industry. The Oilfield Drilling Waste Mud Treatment Process is to treat the waste drilling mud (drill cuttings) immediately while drilling to meet the requirements of "mud zero discharge" and reduce environmental pollution. This technology is to dilute, flocculate and separate the waste mud into rock debris, mud cake and water, and process the solids in the mud through water washing, flocculation separation and chemical reaction to make the rock debris and mud cake meet the discharge standard.
 

Oilfield Drilling Waste Mud Treatment
 
The Oilfield Drilling Waste Mud Treatment main equipment includes: shale shaker, drill cuttings dryer, drilling fluid centrifuge, screw conveyor, screw pump, etc. KOSUN's zero discharge mud system can effectively control the water content of drilling cuttings (6%-10%) in the drilling mud, stabilize the liquid phase performance, and achieve the purpose of mud zero discharge.
 
There are many kinds of waste mud treatment processes in oilfield drilling. Each treatment plan needs to be determined according to the drilling site and drilling construction conditions. It must not only achieve the treatment effect, but also meet the national environmental protection requirements, and strive to achieve harmless treatment. It plays an active role in improving and protecting the environment, soil and groundwater.
