Very remote site with 900 tonnes of invert liquid drilling waste in need of disposal. The site was many hours from the nearest liquid waste disposal site and only accessible by winter roads. Disposal options were very costly.
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.
