The Drill cuttings Management solution is designed to help maximize compliance with the waste management hierarchy principles, as well as ensuring that local regulations and standards are complied with. Ultimately, disposal will be required in all cases, be it solids and / or liquids.
Drill cuttings management solution usually including but not limit to:
1 collection of drill cuttings
There are various ways to collect the drill cuttings from the solids control system( shale shaker, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge). Firstly you need a cuttings blowing pump to blow the drill cuttings and waste produced by centrifuge from a collection place in the site to a drill waste storage tank or directly to a transferred truck or boat, they called it ”bulk tank”. Then Screw conveyors are used to transport drill cuttings and centrifuge waste from one location on the rig to another, probably to a vertical cutting dryer in the drilling waste management system.
2 Storage of drill cuttings
A Drilling Waste Container is to storage drill cutting, centrifuge waste and pit cleaning wastes generated during drilling operations. The drilling waste containers are typically transported to a treatment and disposal site for further processing.
After the drilling waste is treated by vertical cutting dryer, the cuttings will be collected by a small waste container and be transported to other place, the fluids are pumped to high speed decanter centrifuge for further process.
3 Treatment of drill cuttings
The cuttings produced by shale shaker, mud cleaner will be transferred to a drilling waste management system for treatment. If you want to get more info for the drilling waste treatment system, pls contact GN solids control. We already used such treatment equipments in Brazil successfully.
