Drilling Mud Treatment Plant
Our Drilling Mud Treatment Plant, situated at our Aberdeen Waste Management Centre, utilises advanced drilling mud treatment technologies, including physical, chemical and thermal treatments to facilitate the breakdown of drilling muds.
The plant separates the drilling mud into three components: water suitable (for treatment at our effluent treatment plant), oil suitable (for energy recovery) and solid waste (destined for further processing prior to landfill). Our highly efficient process results in significantly increased recovery rates, and only 15-20% waste goes to landfill in comparison with the current alternatives.
As well as the environmental benefits of reducing volumes sent to landfill, the plant has a substantial capacity ensuring we can meet the needs of the demanding oil and gas sector.
