Crude oil tank bottoms and other petroleum oily sludges and emulsions containing paraffins and volatile hydrocarbons can be economically reprocessed with heavy-oil dehydration facilities to recover residual hydrocarbons and to achieve volume reductions.Continue reading “Oily Sludges Thermal Treatment”
A step-change is needed in drilling process control, to enable consistently high performance, accurate pressure control and reduced risk of unwanted effects. Advances in process control have been made but risk reduction and optimization of the drilling process is still a major challenge.Continue reading “Drilling Mud Process Control”
The major aim of wastewater management is to remove as much of the suspended solids as possible before the remaining water, called effluent, is discharged back to the environment.
Completion and workover fluids are any fluids used in the completion of a well or in a workover operation. These fluids range from low-density gases such as nitrogen to high-density muds and packer fluids. The application and requirements vary for each fluid.
