MetaFLO has developed a process that solidifies liquid industrial waste streams in a matter of minutes, watch the videos below. The process includes a patented, high volume mixing unit that facilitates the addition of a powdered formulation of absorptive materials to meet environmental solids criteria and stabilize metals and hydrocarbons.

Drill Waste Management for Gas Distribution Upgrade

Drill Waste Management for Gas Distribution Upgrade

In 2015, a major Canadian natural gas distribution company had to perform construction operations to upgrade its existing distribution system. To mitigate the disturbance of the surface level roads and natural habitats, the proponent utilized horizontal directional drilling (HDD) technology. Twenty large bores (36" and 42") were planned for this project.

Enbridge Gas Distribution Pipeline Project

The Georgian Bay Pipeline Project was necessary to meet growing need for natural gas in that region. The new pipeline was 20 kilometers and 12” diameter. The route for the pipe included 30 road, rail and river crossings which would require horizontal directional drilling (HDD) to complete. Spent HDD fluids and cuttings are a regulated waste in Ontario and very costly to transport and dispose of. An estimated 250,000 gallons (940,000 litres) of spent drill mud would be in need of disposal.

Drilling waste BC

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.

Drill Mud Sump in Fort McMurray, Alberta

Drill Mud Sump in Fort McMurray, Alberta

Large volume of oil and gas exploration drilling fluid stored in drill mud sump to be solidified in severe cold in Fort McMurray, AB in January. Long distance to liquids disposal site made liquid transport and disposal costs extremely high. After treatment, the solidified waste drill fluids were transported to a solids disposal site saving approximately 8 hours per load.
