Triflo International’s solids control machinery for pollution avoidance

While Oil rig perform the drilling into the earth core, it needs to break soil and rocks apart.  Some layers often is harder than other so drilling operation will use additive to strength the drill bit to break the layer.  The additive that uses combine the rock sometimes will cause the harm of environment. 

Underground of earth is not totally solid and sometime it contains the layer of water like underground river.  When water mix with the drilling process, it contains several of heavy metal ion and anion.  Such content in water will change the stability of the drilling fluid that affect the performance of the fluid.  When water is in the drilling fluid increasing, the various additives will be added into the drilling fluid.  The mixture of drilling fluid and additive is harmful to the environment if reach to surface and not properly treated.  
The calcium, gypsum. Salt to name a few that mixing with additive is common and needed but harmful to environment.  The mud treating system is serving the purpose to contain, filter and recondition the drilling mud for continuous usage. 

Triflo International’s advantage is we are the LEANEST OE solids control manufacture in USA that made the whole  solids control machinery  our-self  plus we custom made the whole mud recycle system to meet specific project’s need for our customers.  Our customer are ensure we provide the solids control machinery to meet local environmental standard around the world and dealing with manufacture them self to ensure the best possible price to keep overall cost of rig operation as consist as possible.  We provide consist stocks of parts and tech personals ready at the request of customers by moment’s notice.  There are lots of manufactures in China who can make less-costly machinery and system but adding other facts for operation consideration, Triflo International is the choice of obvious.  

Triflo International’s MFS 3000 mud system use in US Air Force.

MFS 3000 use by US Air Force Combat Engineers

The method of solids control principle used in drilling is the control of mud solid phase technology. The technology purpose remove the harmful mud, solids and keep the good solids through process on mud filter and cleaning requirements. The current use of drilling, the recovery mud solids control is system composed from small to large as end user requires.  The choices of mud solids control system is need according the basics in below:

It needs to be clean or inhibit particle variable types and size

It need to be maintain the quality of the mud

The size of ability in drill, removal of solids and operation cycle rate.

Solids control system function as environmental protection system that is requires in every region of the world who are digging in to earth to harvest resource underground. 

US Air force combat Engineer use MFS 3000 as water well drilling for remote base in any region of Earth and currently use the system in Afghanistan.  The system also serve as public civic engineer service for the local region and give it as gift for local region government for continue civic service provide secure water source.

Due to the nature of use for combat troops, it requires the system can be airlift and drop by method of Air Force Transport.  MFS 3000 system certify as below by quality assurance for airlift and drop by cargo plane, easy use and maintenance by basic training to anyone, and build quality that can survive in most extreme environment conditions earth can throw at it.

Triflo International’s MFS8000R is recently delivered to US government, USGS.

Benefits of Triflo International’s pit less, turn-key, fast move mud system.

  • it gets rid of sore-looking and dangerous pits
  • it cuts-down the time, energy and money of building, fencing and reclaiming reserve pits
  • it cutback the need for cuts in sensitive and hilly areas
  • total surface disruption associated with a well pad is down
  • it gets rid of risk of waterfowl and wildlife mortality related to pits
  • it gets rid of risk of damaging underground pipelines and utilities
  • it grant drilling in areas with a high ground water table
  • it nearly eliminates drilling waste
  • rigs use less water per well – it can reduce water usage by as much as 80%
  • the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has estimated that “closed loop systems” can decrease the volume of drilling fluids by as much as 90% 
  • it gets rid of soil isolation, which reduces wind erosion problems
  • it reduces heavy-load traffic associated with transporting drilling wastes by as much as 75%
  • it may improve relationship with land owners
  • it largely decrease waste tracking and need for land farming operations
  • drill debris may be put to beneficial use, e.g., if not contaminated they may provide a source of finely-ground clay for berg construction around tank batteries or other uses
  • the tanks can be re-used and move around

Closed-loop systems reduce company liability

Pits may or may not be lined (depending on the oil and gas regulations); and pits are open to the air. Because of this, the pit may leak liquids into surface or groundwater and release high levels of unsettled organic compounds, which in turn create health, environmental, and financial risks. If improperly guarded, livestock may enter the pit area. If the livestock is poisoned by the pit materials, companies may be liable for the deaths, and be required to compensate the livestock owner.

According to the Railroad Commission of Texas, even though closed-loop drilling is not always the least price-wise option, some companies in Texas have elected to use only closed-loop drilling fluids systems in their operations.  Company choose this path because whenever a closed-loop system is used, the operator reduces the potential future liability associated with a conventional earthen pit, and reduces the waste management and site closure costs. It’s also good for the company image and public relations.

Triflo International’s closed-loop or “Pit less” turn-key Drilling Systems

While doing drilling operations, “closed-loop” drilling fluid systems (sometimes referred to as “closed mud” or “pit less” systems) can indeed reduce or get rid of the discharge of wrongful drilling wastes on site. These systems negate the need for drilling reserve pits. Not only is it possible to have pit less drilling operations, it can also be an economic advantage to companies to used closed-loop drilling systems.

Many companies are using closed loop drilling systems in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Alaska and other states. Examples of companies who are using closed-loop technologies include: Shell, El Paso, Chevron-Texaco, Exxon, and many others.

Differences between conventional drilling and closed-loop drilling systems

At a typical oil or gas drilling site, drilling fluids (mud, water, additives) are continue looped through the wellbore, then the fluids and drill debris (rock fragments created by the drilling process) are deposited in a reserve pit created near well. This pit is used to hold used drilling fluids and wastes.

A reserve pit can be the source of considerable costs at a drilling site because:

  • The pit itself must be created at the beginning of drilling, which requires the use of heavy earthmoving equipment.
  • The pit may have to be lined.
  • When the drilling project is finished, the pit, including all of the waste fluids and solids, must be properly handled. Such as could include activities like: the removal and offsite disposal of the waste materials and liner; the ground cover of the wastes and liner; backfilling of the pit with soil; and re-plant of the disturbed pit area.

Also, there are health, environmental, and financial liability associated with pits, which can pollute soils with hydrocarbons, metals and salts, and leak potentially poison liquids into surface or groundwater. 

In a closed-loop drilling fluid system, the reserve pit is replaced with a series of cargo-like tanks that separate liquids and solids. Equipment to separate out solids (e.g., screen shakers, hydrocyclones, centrifuges) and collection equipment (e.g., vacuum trucks, shale barges) minimize the amount of drilling waste muds and cuttings that require dumping, and maximize the amount of drilling fluid recycled and reused in the drilling process. The debris created are typically transferred off-site for disposal at injection wells or oilfield waste disposal facilities.

The tanks will be an additional cost, but overall, pit less drilling can save an operator money because there is no need to dig a pit, there is a reduction in the amount of environmental releases, and the closed-loop system results in more efficient use of drilling fluid.
