Drilling Mud Zero Discharge Treatment Process

Brife introduction of drilling mud zero discharge treatment process:

1.Collection Unit. Through the solid control equipment, drilling waste mud enter into the screw conveyor, while adding water for dilution and mixing. Then through screw conveyor, the mud enter into the sand and gravel separation & washing and stirring device, after stirring, washing and spiral separation, a large number of inorganic particles, small rocks, cuttings can be separated from the drilling mud, which reduced the influences of type of material on the follow-up treatment. So that the abandoned mud can maintain the good liquidity. After the separation, the mud lifting into the slurry storage tank by the mud pump, while adding treatment chemicals, after stirring and mixing reaction, the mud lifting into the second processing unit the pump.

2.Solid-liquid separation unit. In order to reduce the moisture content and the pollutants of the mud cake, it is indispensable to add the treatment chemicals and the multiple stirring and washing. After the pharmaceutical treatment and repeated mixing and washing, the contaminants contained in the mud are washed into the water. If there is petroleum pollutant, it needs to be treated by the oil removal device first, and then the oil is recovered. The de-oiling mud is sent to the centrifugal extension by the pump for mud and water separation, and the solid matter in the mud can be discharged after the separation. The separated water enters the collection tank and then pumped by the pump to the third treatment unit.

3.Wastewater treatment unit. After centrifugation, the content of suspended solids in the water is relatively high. Through the flotation and filtration system, the suspended solids contained in the water are removed, reducing the organic content in the waste water and then enter the reverse osmosis system for concentration. Reverse osmosis out of the standard wastewater into the reuse water tank, pump back to use for the production. A small amount of concentrated liquid can also be treated by evaporation crystallization, salt can be sold to salt chemical manufacturers, turning waste into treasure.

The above is the whole drilling Mud Zero Discharge Treatment Process.

Drilling Mud Waste Management System of Kosun Strategies

Drilling Mud Waste Management

Drilling Mud Waste management is one of the major concerns for the drilling companies all around the world. It is simply impossible to avoid pollution while shale shaker perform drilling. The main sources of drilling waste are the fluid removed drilling cuttings that are cut by the shale shaker.

Drilling companies are undergoing through an extensive pressure from various environment activists all around the world. So, an environment friendly waste management system is a prime requirement for the drilling companies. Several waste management strategies are taken into action for different types of waste while drilling. Here is a discussion about different types of drilling waste management strategies.

Different approaches for waste management: In order to manage the waste of a drilling site, the first step is to set up necessary solid control equipment like shale shaker. Till now the most popular drilling waste management strategy that is used is dilution. In the dilution process for controlling solids, a certain amount of fluid is extracted from the cuttings and are gathered into a pit. The rest of the cuttings are transformed into a concentrated solid after another extraction of fluid is executed to those by adding any liquid like water or oil.

After this, the drilling wastes become ready to be disposed. In the next step, it is imperative to determine the surface area and the amount of waste that is required to handle. While disposing the wastes, drilling companies can use G force drying shaker to make the wastes radiation and contamination free. Another consideration in drilling waste management is managing the cement returns.

Sometimes cement returns are simply disposed by following the mix bury cover system. In this process, the drilling waste with cement returns is gathered altogether and transformed into hard cement pit. Then, the hard pits of cement returns are grinded into small pieces. After that, the grinded cement pits can be disposed. The whole process of management must not take more than a year.

Benefits and Features:

1 Easy to install:  Every modular waste management components are self-contained and used for their own functions. The operator only needs to connect the hose through the quick connection and plug in the power supply module.

2 Fast delivery, price concessions: Although the layout is customized for different applications, but each module unit has a different selection criteria, which allows Kosun to mass production of large quantities of components, and to maintain the module unit inventory. This allows Kosun to give customers a good price for drilling the rapid delivery of waste management components.

3 Flexibility: Accoring to the application, the operator selects the component and provides only the required waste management unit for different jobs. In addition, due to the compact size of the modular unit, the operator can arrange the components at the construction site with the best flexibility.

4 Easy transport: Most rigs are located in remote areas, large transport is very difficult, and waste management components allow the operator to easily load components onto small trucks or longer trucks.

Drilling waste cutting equipment which we produce experience in API, IADC, ISO and CE certification for drilling solid control equipment and drilling waste cutting management equipment for more than 20 years.
The full range of solid control equipment includes settling centrifuge, mud shaker, mud washer, lean oil degasser, pump, mud tank system. Vertical centrifuges and related screw pumps and screw conveyors belong to our drilling waste management equipment business scope.

Not only the supply of drilling waste cuttings  equipment, KOSUN also manufactures and manufactures spare parts for oil and gas related spare parts for drilling as a substitute for the equipment you are currently using.

Drilling Mud Waste Management Engineer Duties of Kosun

Drilling Mud Waste Management

Drilling Mud Waste Management system of Kosun is well recognized by customer at home and abroad.

Drilling is the sheer process undertaken to extract oil and gas from the earth for commercial and industrial use. It is actually a trillion dollar industry that is important for each and every country.

Over the past few years, the processes or drilling activities have increases subsequently, thanks to the ever rising demand for fuels and gases. With increases level of drilling activities, there occurred another problem, the drilling waste generated also increased manifold. So in the present world with much importance given to ideas of sustainability and limited use of exhaustible resources, effective drilling mud waste management also came to the spotlight.

As a result of all these developments, most companies undertaking these activities irrespective of whether they are government funded or private shifted towards better technologies and techniques to better safeguard the environment.

This was done mainly through the effective disposal of drilling waste that can cause great harm to the environment. Although all these methods and equipments were set up, the companies needed someone to ensure proper functioning of all these.

This is the role of a drilling mud waste management engineer in extraction companies. He acts as a supervisor and ensures proper drilling waste management and handling, right from the initial phases to their disposal.

He/she hired for the job is responsible for ensuring proper functioning of all process related to waste management and subsequent disposal. In the initial phases, where the solid and fuel wastes are separated from the oil and gas extracted, these engineers ensure no spillage or leakage in the machinery and that all these wastes are efficiently collected for transportation.

The transportation and subsequent disposal is also kept under check by these professionals. He/she undertaking the job also needs to have sufficient knowledge and skill for tackling any challenges that may stand in the way.
