Drilling Waste

Enviroco deals with huge volumes of drilling waste every year. We use a combination of our own drilling waste treatment processes and those of our suppliers, to increase recycling and minimise the drilling waste disposal volumes.

To provide our customers with a more flexible service and quicker vessel turnaround times, we have increased our quayside storage by over 50% in recent years, and plan to continue this expansion going forward.

Drilling mud treatment

Drilling muds are dealt with at our drilling mud treatment plant located at our Aberdeen Waste Management Centre. 

We are able to receive large volumes of drilling muds through our various direct discharge quayside facilities, before transfer to our drilling mud treatment plant. Our treatment process increases recovery rates, and enables us to divert over 85% of drilling mud away from landfill.

Drill cuttings

Drill cuttings can be delivered by bulk discharge at any of our quayside locations, using our large fleet of mud cuttings boxes, which are available on a short, medium or long term rental basis.

The cuttings are treated using a thermal process which separates oil and liquids from the solids. This leaves a clear oil fraction, which is suitable for onward recycling.

Bulk liquids

Bulk liquids, brines and dirty waters can be treated at our effluent treatment plant which uses dissolved air floataion processes. chemcial dosing and phsyical separation to treat bulk liquids prior to discharge.
