Case Study: Nigerian Drilling Platforms
Wastewater on a self-contained drilling platform comes from several sources. The following examples are samples obtained from the seven oil-drilling platforms off of the coast of Nigeria. The first platform had samples from the industrial laundry, kitchen, emulsified, cutting oily-water and drilling mud. The samples were treated individually and then combines so as to simplify the platform operations with only 2 treatment systems. All samples treated easily with the FloccinAgents. To meet reuse or discharge limits, post treatment with micro-filtration and reverse osmosis will be added to the treatment process.
