Prospects for Oil Sludge Management Equipment

With the promulgation of the new environmental law, the environmental requirements is getting higher and higher to the oil field, and free discharge of oil sludge will no longer be allowed.Oil Sludge Management is becoming a focal issue.

Oil sludge is oil mixed into the soil.It will be mixed together and become very difficult to deal with.Oil sludge mainly from two aspects: First, crude oil from the stratum to the ground and accumulated in all kinds of containers, large tanks and recycling pools and other ground facilities; Second, Oil sludge produced by oil wells operations.

Oily sludge is mainly derived from oil field mining and sewage treatment plant, in general, the sludge oil content is from 10% to 50%, moisture content is from 40% to 90%. The ultimate purpose of Oil Sludge Management is to reduce the harmful resources. The common oil sludge treatment methods are solvent extraction, incineration, biological, coking, oily sludge profile control, comprehensive utilization of oil sludge. The results show that the current methods for Oil Sludge Management have their own characteristics and scope of application. As the oil sludge composition is complex, there is no treatment that can treatment all types of oily sludge.

According to statistics, the size of the pollutant treatment market is between 100 to 150 billion yuan in each year,and according to roughly calculation,the investment of Oil Sludge Management equipment needs more than 150 billion.

Since 2007,Daqing Oilfield have built nine Oil Sludge Management station, the annual treatment capacity can reach 3.2 million tons,all the oil sludge had been treatment harmless. Changqing Oilfield build a Longdong oil field sludge treatment station in 2013 and used the physical and chemical combined methods, the oil content of the treatmented oil sludge is less than 2%, moisture content is less than 60%, while the crude oil can be recovered. Xinjiang Fengcheng Oilfield operating area using microbial agents to deal with heavy oil sludge and the test results is very good, sludge oil content from 15% down to 2% below after treatment. The current test has been reviewed by the company.
