Oilfield drilling policy in Latin American
Brazilian oil deposits below a layer of salt in the Atlantic Ocean hold at least 123 billion barrels of reserves, more than double government estimates, according to a university study by a former Petroleo Brasileiro SA geologist.
2 ColombiaColombia is currently one of the friendliest South American countries in terms of oil and gas regulations and royalties.
In 2003, Colombia’s National Agency for Hydrocarbons (ANH) created a new energy policy, the state-owned hydrocarbon company, to compete with other oil and gas companies for exploration and production contracts.The new policy also allows private companies such benefits as 100% ownership upon exploration success.
Ecuador produces more oil than it needs for domestic consumption and thus it is one of the country’s leading exports. Therefore, any new drilling for oil is not intended to meet local demand but is intended for export overseas, most likely to Japan and the United States. Beneath the surface in eastern Ecuador and within the Amazon rain forest, are large amounts of oil. Critics warn that the habitat could suffer either through the direct spilling of product and soil contamination or through the opening of the area to the outside through the building of roads.
Due to the drilling activities in Latin American, environment protection should be on the way right now. A plenty of drilling mud recycling system and drilling waste treatment system are urgently demand.
GN solids control provide various of drilling equipments and drilling mud recycling system for oilfield.
Advantages of using drilling mud equipments in oilfield
1 recycling drilling mud to used for drilling rig, it can save considerable drilling cost
2 Environment protection
After treated by drilling mud equipments, the solids can be trucked away, some are used for construction landfill, some are used to Brick production
3 recycling barite
It is an important material for drilling fluids, which can keep the mud balance
4 extend the service life of rig
5 extend the working time of other related drilling tools
