Challenge:

Drilling waste in BC in need of solidification at remote mountain top site. Drilling mud produced near slopes estimated at greater than 28⁰ restricting mobility and truck access. Project deadline was constrained by heavy rain prior to mobilization and wildlife migration and fisheries preservation. Thin layers of gravel-like natural soil provided inadequate soil properties for mix-bury-cover site processing.

Solution:

MetaFLO’s technology offered space savings suitable to the site. Additionally, by applying MetaFLO’s patented high shear solidification process, the difficult residual drill waste could be managed for compliant mix-bury-cover. The challenge of managing the drill waste would otherwise have made the whole drilling operation cost prohibitive.

Result:

Project was completed in required timeframe. The expertise of CCI and Talisman crews working with MetaFLO technology produced a solidified material surpassing all regulatory requirements.
