Saved by processing the waste streams at source.
Worth of base oil recovered from the waste and reused in the mud system.
Reduction in carbon emissions due to elimination of 5,712km sea transportation.
The output of the technology was recovered solids, suitable for reinjection
at source with <1% oil on cuttings. The recovered water, measuring <30ppm was suitable for reinjection in the same disposal well and 12,500bbl recovered oil was returned for reused in the active system.
This solution eliminated the requirement for, and costs associated with, transportation of waste to an offsite facility for treatment and disposal and
in turn extracted recovered oil from the drilling waste. In addition, 36,669 lifts were eliminated and multi handling operations of >60,000 bbl of waste reduced personnel exposure.
