Drilling Waste Management TDU

Indirect Thermal Desorption (TDU) applies heat to the contaminated soil while isolating the flame from the material.  The contaminant vapor is isolated, so it can be recovered, condensed, and recycled, eliminating long-term liability.

This TDU treatment is different to Brightway Drilling Waste Management System, which is mainly composed of vertical cuttting dryer and VFD decanter centrifuge by the physical principal of centrifugal force as below picture.

Here is the example of Brandt TDU. The cuttings are heated up indirectly in a large diameter, rotating dryer, with the contaminants being vaporized, as the cuttings move forward through the dryer to discharge.
The vapors are pulled from the dryer and filtered, to remove the dust particulate.
Vapors are then condensed to a liquid phase and are processed through an oil/water separation system.
Recovered water is used to rehydrate the cleaned cuttings while the recovered oil is used in new mud or fuel in the burners.
Stainless steel construction allows for the high temperatures necessary for processing drilled cuttings. Variable speed dryer rotation and positive sealing system to prevent discharge of dust and vapor.

A high temperature separator filters vapors, removing dust, leaving recovered oil clean.
Vapor Cooling System – Stainless shell & tube water-cooled heat exchanger, with closed loop cooling tower.
Oil/water Separation System – First pass through slant bed oil/water separator, then through a coalescer.
Soil Conditioner – dual shafted pug mill, with recycled water spray system to rehydrate and cool the cleaned cuttings.
Post Treatment Oil Uses
Use as base oil for drilling fluids
Send to pipeline for re-use
Use in burners to fuel the thermal process
Fuel for other industrial processes
Diesel engine fuel
Kilns/ovens
Oil/water separators (heater treater)
Oil treaters
Asphalt plants
Steam generation
The Brandt THOR™ system uses the Best Available Control Technology (BACT) in the “state of the art” patented THOR process.
With the addition of the thermal oxidizer equipment on the new THOR system, stack emissions are below US EPA guidelines for this process and will beat our clients’ most stringent requirements.
The US EPA has designated this technology as the Best Demonstrated Available Technology (BDAT) for remediation of hydrocarbon contaminated soils.

This drilling waste treatment of TDU is complicated than our drilling waste management, while our sludge drying system can be completed further as the Zero discharge system by making the dried waste to be the solids bricks.

It is an interesting challenge. It might be an good idea to track down my preparation with the following blog.

Before going deeper about the drilling waste management content, I have a question in my mind how to do the presentation effectively, based on my limited experience of presentation, it is not a easy thing to grasp customer attention to our product presentation.

I found Steve Jobs Presentation Skills Video from Youku luckily, and if you want to learn sth, better to kind a good teacher.

1. Set the theme, and make your them clear and consistent
2. Create a headline that sets the direction for your meeting.
3. Provide a outline, verbally open and close each section with clear transition and make it easy for your listeners to follow your story.
4. Demonstrate enthusiasm
Extraordinary, amazing, cool, wow your audience,and if you are not passion about it, the audiences are not going to be.
5. Make numbers and statistics meaningful and analogies help connect the dos for your audience.

Material surface roughness have an effect on dry indoor wind field. Drying space space is giant vertical drier giant, and adopts the profile into the wind, the uniformity of dry indoor air rate field of medium is one in every of the necessary factors that result on} the drying effect.

Multilayer belt drier, the spray chamber through drier of the drier dry indoor the uniformity of temperature field and rate field and its influence on the impact of drying on the fabric for variety of analysis, found the drier drying chamber is uneven distribution of wind speed and cause low potency of drying, drying of the most causes of uneven.

Therefore, the study on the massive vertical drier dry indoor rate field, particularly the uniformity of wind field looks necessary.

 

Brightway vacuum degasser

Only if the harmful gas is removed from well drilling, a drilling operation can go on. Therefore, degasser plays an important role in drilling. Vacuum degasser is the necessary to learn something about this part of solids control system.

Vacuum degasser is an effective technique to ensures the safety of welling drilling, its reliability, safety and efficient operation will be an important guarantee for the safe drilling.

How to keep a drilling shale shaker work efficiently ? Part 2

3. If fluid flows through a hole or tear, cuttings are not removed. Any screen with a hole or tear should be replaced immediately. With a shaker screen, the hole or tear can be plugged.
4. Shaker screen replacements should be made as quickly as possible. Minimize downtime by planning your work. Locate and arrange tools and screens before starting. If possible, get help. This will decrease the amount of cuttings being kept in the mud because the shaker is not running. If possible, change screens during a connection. In critical situations, drilling may be interrupted and the pumps stopped while the screen is replaced.

5. Dilution fluids ( water or oil ) should not be added in the possum belly or on the shaker screen.
6. Dilution fluids should be added downstream. Dilution-fluids ( even water ) additions should be metered or otherwise measured.
7. Except for cases of lost circulation ( when it is necessary to retain lost circulation material ), the shaker should not be bypassed, not even for a short time.

decanter centrifuge
Brightway is a professional oilfield drilling mud shale shaker supplier and manufacturer in China oil drilling mud solids control industry.As the pioneer in this industry,Brightway is capable of providing customers with series products ,such as oil & gas drilling fluid solids control equipment, decanter centrifuge, drilling waste management equipment and drilling system equipment.

Drilling Fluids Technology

The solids control is always the main issue with any kind of mud, when the mud if full of solids it becomes also more sensitive to any kind of contamination. That’s why your mud weight, MBT and total solids have also increased. You should improve your solids removal control, i.e. if you can, put finer shaker screen, run desander/desilter, centrifuge and have a heavy dump & dilute. Make the transfer to the suction with a light viscous new mud.

Ifeanyi, sounds like he is using a uncalibrated pH meter. WBM with chlorides tends to make pH meters go bonkers quick. You should always have pH strips to double check yourself & even more important pheno end point is 8.0 – 8.3 pH, so if you have a pf or a pm, then your pH is higher than an 8.0.

It really looks like solids buildup problem. But gents, what do you think, wouldn’t it stir up more clays if to run desilter and desander?! And MBT would go higher. I had this problem once. It is probably inefficient work of SRE….And what if sometimes the client is not very happy with dumping due to small waste management setup? In this case, if I don’t have much to drill to TD this section, I would do the following: provided that I have enough reserve space in the pits, build fresh un-viscous pre-mix in reserve and then take the portion of active system into other pit and bleed this pre-mix into active slowly and of course firstly run finer screens and centrifuges.

Check all the other things as suggested but with an MBT and solids incease, check for KCl and glycol depletion. Are you guilty of ‘there’s not much more to go lets save money and lay off the KCl and glycol’? You will have to dilute or / and add thinner to get out of this in the time left. Pilot test the dilution, eat the mud properties till near final circulations and then add the dilution to leave the ‘best’ thinner mud you can manage in the hole when they pull out. If they are pulling out to log or something, do not let the KCl drop. Is PHPA one of the polymers? These results indicate depletion all round.
