Difference between Drilling Waste Management and Solids Control System

Do you know what the important things are for oil drilling fields? Maybe there are two things we should consider, one is how to improve oil drilling work efficiency, and the other one is how to protect the environment around the oil drilling fields. Today KOSUN want to share our ideas about solving the two questions. When we prepare to answer the two questions, we will mention two system: solids control system and drilling waste management.

First, how to protect the environment around our oil drilling fields?

-KOSUN drilling waste management.

Just as we know, with the development of society, people have a strong mind about environment protection; we all know the importance of environment-friendly or eco-environment, we all know the importance to balance the economy development and environment protection, which is the same to our oil drilling works.

KOSUN have researched and manufactured our latest equipment – vertical cutting dryer, which is the core equipment for our drilling waste management equipment (it is also called drilling cuttings management system). Different models could meet your multiple demands in oil drilling works, especially for environment protection during the oil drilling works.Besides the cutting dryers, there are also some other important equipment for the whole drilling waste management equipment, such as decanter centrifuge, screw pumps, sand pump, screw conveyor, mud tank, etc. the whole solids control equipment could be combated together via new technology, and then provide an amazing working results, such as good environment protection.

Second, how to improve work efficiency in oil drilling works?

Generally speaking, there are many ways to reach this goal, at the same time, with the development of oil drilling fields, more and more new products come into our life and work, high quality and high tech to provide a high efficiency oil drilling works. About this question, KOSUN gives our own answer – Solids Control System.

KOSUN solids control system, which is also called mud system, you can use them in any kind of oil drilling fields. Why I said our solids control system or mud system could solve the problem of work efficiency? The reason is that our solids control system is constituted of high quality solids control equipment, such as mud tank, shale shaker, decanter centrifuge, mud cleaner, shale shaker screen, vacuum degasser, sand pump, etc. Usually, if we just use single solids control equipment, maybe the work efficiency will be lower than our expectation; while if we use newly technology to combine the different solids control equipment together, and test them until working smoothly, we must to say we have reached the goal of improving oil drilling work’s efficiency. That’s why KOSUN Solids Control Systemcould provide you a high work efficiency guarantee.

The above two points are about KOSUN solids control system and drilling waste management equipment, they are two different types system or unit, but they are the same in some extent. You could find the difference between the two systems, while you can also find the similar points between them.

The solids control system/mud system and drilling waste management equipment are the big success for KOSUN, more and more customers and partners choose these two systems used into their overseas oil drilling platforms. Anyway, solids control system and drilling waste management unit are born to improve your oil drilling work efficiency and protect the oil drilling fields environment.

How is Dryer Shaker Working in Drilling Waste Management?

KOSUN develops dryer shaker,vertical cuttings dryer, drying shaker, decanter centrifuge, screw conveyor, screw pump and other first-class high-performance drilling waste management system, taking “zero discharge of drilling waste” as the drilling waste treatment standard.

Dryer Shaker
Dryer Shaker

Hi-g dryer shaker reduces the liquid/oil content drilling cuttings to as low as about 10%(w/w) and recover part of the drilling mud,so that the drilling cost can be reduced and the drilling waste volume can be cut down,for the purpose of reducing environmental pollution.

Hi-G dryer shaker and vertical cuttings dryer can be introduced as drill cuttings usually take away much drilling mud and thus raise drilling cost. Hi-G dryer manages oil content and water content down to 10% from 30% while vertical cuttings dryer lowers oil on cuttings below 5%, to the greatest degree, with small rotary speed and centrifugal filtration. Either of them is effective to recover drilling mud and shrink drilling cost.

In the process of oil and gas drilling, general shallow wells would use water-based mud, and deep wells would use oil-based mud, that makes conventional solids control equipment work effectively on recovery of heavy metal and stone and useful drilling fluid. However, these cutting fluids containing heavy metals and solids (presumably oil content at 12%~18%) would caused great damage on nearby vegetation, soil, groundwater and other natural environment building and human living environment if they are not managed to emissions.

Features of Drilling Waste Management System:

  1. Good Result of Water-based Mud: 6%-10% Water Content.
  2. Overwhelmingly overcomes the difficulty in disposing the waste all or disposing them effectively, which combines the technology brought from Italy with advantages of the same products abroad.

The advantages of Drilling waste management are:

-It is good for the environment and saves energy.

-It reduces the cost of operation as we get to reuse the materials.

In the process of drilling a water or oil hole, the solids that are obtained and the drilling fluid get mixed. This is called drilling waste. This waste must first be separated for proper management.

drilling waste management system

After separation of the mixture, the drilling fluid that is obtained can be reused. But for the solids that are obtained, proper measures need to be taken so that there is minimum wastage and no harm is caused to the environment.

The first step is to take care that the waste which is generated is as minimum as possible. This can be done by slightly changing the way, the hole is drilled. That is instead of conventional drilling other drillings options must be considered like;

1] Directional Drilling: Here instead of going directly vertical, drilling is done by taking angles while going down. Its variations are extended reach drilling, horizontal drilling and multiple laterals.

2] Drilling holes with small diameter: Technologies used to obtain holes with smaller diameter are slim hole drilling and coiled tubing drilling.

3] Techniques in which less drilling fluid is required like pneumatic drilling.

The second step is to use those fluids that does not harm our environment. Examples of such fluids are Synthetic Based muds (SBM) that biodegradable, does not accumulate and digs clean holes and has almost no toxicity.

Third is that, the wastes that are obtained must be reused as much as possible. The fluid that is obtained can be reused again as a drilling fluid. The solid cuttings that are obtained can be reused by spreading it on road and preventing road erosion or using it as a construction material.

Lastly, proper care must be taken for those solids that cannot be used and needs to be disposed. For pits may be build or may be dumped as landfills, where another layer of soil or other material.

Drilling waste management is the name of a major headache for the companies involved in drilling in different gas and oil mines. Due to the increased awareness of people regarding environment, drilling companies have to perform an extensive procedure before disposing the drilling waste. It is a very complex process in which the intervention of the professionals is required. So, drilling companies must seek the expertise help from a waste management engineer in order to ensure the proper disposal of shale shaker generated waste without disturbing the environment.

Drilling waste management

Drilling waste management entails all processes and precautions required or recommended to ensure a safe environment. Drilling waste contains spent fluids and drilling cuttings that result from the drilling process. The spent fluids and drilling cuttings that are referred to as drilling waste have no use in the ensuing drilling process therefore must be disposed of. However the disposal of this waste requires that the set environmental management standards and regulations are adhered to for the maintenance of a safe environment and also in order to avoid legal disputes and penalties.

Drilling Waste Management System – Containment and Handling

Drilling Waste Management

Drilling waste management  is more and more important. The necessity of energy is increasing relentlessly. People are becoming more and more power hungry. With the increase in the demand, drilling companies are trying to cope up with the ever increasing demand by setting up new drilling sites.

A major issue that any drilling company has to handle is how to manage the drilling wastes generated from shale shaker cuttings. Drilling waste management companies are trying to sort out the most environment friendly method for the waste management.

Drilling Waste Management Plan
Drilling Waste Management Plan

A major step of drilling waste management plan is managing the containment of the wastes generated by shale shaker. A discussion about the issue is given below.

How the drilling waste is contained and handled: The first issue that should be consider in containing and handling drilling waste is the geographical features of the certain drilling sites.

Containment and handling of drilling wastes are no longer to simply on shore based as more and more companies are engaging in off shore drilling for new source of oil and gas. The most common way of managing shale shaker generated drilling wastes is building and using sumps.

Different types of drilling wastes including cement returns drilling wasted and drilling cuttings are contained in a sump. The sumps that are used to contain drilling wastes should not be built in non – polluted area of surface.

A sump inspection must be performed by experts right before the waste disposed in it. A waste tracking system for the drilling wastes must be developed to control the flow of wastes in the sumps.

A regular and efficient inspection schedule must be maintained by the employees in order to ensure that waste contamination sumps are in subtle condition. Another important issue for handling and contamination of drilling waste is decommissioning the sumps. When any sump is decommissioned, drilling authority must ensure that there is zero possibility of further contamination.

How to Optimize the Performance – Drilling Waste Decanter Centrifuge

Drilling Waste

A centrifuge is a device that works on the concept of centrifugal force. The centrifuge makes an object rotate around its own fixed axis, making a circular motion at a very high speed. A decanter centrifuge does the work of separating the mixture of solid and liquid in industries.

In a decanter centrifuge , when the mixture if fed, the centrifuge is rotated at a very high speed. As the centrifuge spins in a circular motion, perpendicular force is exerted on the mixture. This causes the denser substance in the mixture to move out in a radial direction, that is, towards the surface of imaginary circle, while the substance that is less dense moves inside radially, that is at the center.

In drilling  waste management in industries, this process helps in separating solids from liquids like oil, so that the oil can be recycled and reused, thus protecting our precious natural oils.
As a decanter centrifuge is used in many industries like Food Processing industries, oil industries, waste water treatment plants and chemical industries , it is very important to optimize its performance so that there is minimum wastage and maximum efficiency.

Criteria for improved performance of drilling waste decanter centrifuge:
    Before feeding the mixture to the decanter centrifuges , the mixture should preferably fed to a shale shaker. This shale shaker will separate big solids from the mixture. Then the resulting mixture must be fed to the decanter for further filtration. This will reduce the wear and tear of the decanter.
    Right amount of centrifugal force must be applied.
    The Speed of the decanter must be optimal so that the solids in the mixture are safely transported out of the machine.
    The decanter centrifuge is prone to abrasion as the solids in the mixture may rub against the walls of the device. So proper care must be taken by using abrasion resistant material especially at the input zone and at the solid output zone.
