Drilling cuttings waste management http://www.kosun.us/drilling-waste-management/ techniques have been greatly developed promoted by increasingly rising drilling activity and according environment protection requirement. But some processing technology has a certain range of applications and it is also affected by the geographical nature of drilling waste fluids and various most reasonable optimized factors such as oilfield location, climate, and environment. In order to resolve drilling waste fluid pollution problems more effectively, the author suggests that future research not only focuses on strengthening the source and process control, but also develop comprehensive utilization of new technologies. Specifically these new technologies are discussed by the following aspects.
1. Promote cleaner production and resolve this problem from the source of the trouble. It’s urgently needed to make drilling fluids mud cleaner from the source of the waste generated. Thus, it demands high requirements to solid control http://www.kosun.us/solids-control-equipment/ effect and efficiency. By improving the performance of solid control of drilling fluid and the importance of re-use technology, and using environmentally friendly chemical treatments and additives instead of toxic chemical treatments and additives, realize source control cleaner production.
2. Develop low-cost and high-performance environment-friendly drilling fluids. At present, although new developed environmental drilling fluids are non-toxic, and are of biodegradable performance, high costs become the first difficult in population.
3. Drilling waste treatment agents development and the new drilling common techniques development.
4. Develop new technologies of harmless comprehensive utilization. It is the future trend to develop new technologies of harmless comprehensive utilization. This new techniques is favorable to realize living drilling processing, solid-liquid separation, and classification to.
