Oilfield drilling mud is a working fluid that lubricates, cools, protects arms, transmits drilling cuttings and balances bottom pressure during oilfield drilling. Drilling waste mud consists of a small amount of mud discharged during drilling and a large amount of mud discharged after completion. The main components are bentonite, drilling cuttings, water and various chemical additives. Because the waste mud contains a variety of toxic and harmful pollutants such as alkali, salt, oil, etc., it is difficult to deal with, so oily sewage and dirty oil are called the three major public hazards in oil fields. With the provisions of the national environmental protection law and the enhancement of people’s awareness of environmental protection, the petroleum industry has stepped up scientific research on elimination, utilization and resource recycling.
During oil drilling, the use of drilling mud treatments is frequently involved. Untreated sludge can have serious environmental impacts if it is not treated effectively. Relevant practitioners need to properly implement various drilling mud measures and optimize scientific and technical means, so as to effectively improve the quality of oilfield mud treatment. Therefore, in the process of oil drilling, it is necessary to recycle the mud generated during the drilling process to ensure the smooth progress of the drilling work and the engineering quality of the drilling construction.
KOSUN’s mud zero discharge equipment is suitable for mud treatment in medium and large construction sites. The advantages of this model are the large processing capacity, the low moisture content of the mud cake, and the high degree of automation. The filter cake can be accumulated for a certain period of time, which improves work efficiency and reduces costs.
