  • Q&A: A look at Shell Oil and Arctic offshore drilling

    Shell Oil drill vessels are heading to the Arctic. But they will not be permitted to drill into petroleum-bearing rock until a key piece of blowout response equipment, a capping stack, is on site. The capping stack is carried on the icebreaker Fennica, which arrived early Saturday for repairs in Portland, Oregon. Arctic offshore drilling opponents plan to demonstrate while the Fennica is ...

  • Drilling Mud in Horizontal Directional Crossing Project

    Horizontal Directional Crossing Project has a not long development in the country and even the world. But in recent years, pipeline horizontal directional crossing has been great development, large-scale construction of oil and gas pipelines across the length and across the diameter of the continuous creation of new records. In horizontal directional crossing project, the drilling mud play a very ...


  • What`s at Stake: The debate over Arctic Drilling

    Royal Dutch Shell is planning to park two massive Arctic oil drilling rigs in Seattle's waterfront before they head north - but the petrochemical giant will first have to get around protesters in kayaks and others who want to thwart the new frontier in oil exploration and spark a national debate about fossil fuels and climate change. Here's a look at the debate over Shell's plans to drill in the ...

  • Long‐and short‐term effects of smothering and burial by drill cuttings on calcareous algae in a static‐renewal test

    Discharge of drill cuttings to the ocean during drilling of offshore oil wells can impact benthic communities through an increase in the concentrations of suspended particles in the water column and sedimentation of particles on the seafloor around the drilling installation. The present study shows an assessment of water‐based drill cuttings, barite, bentonite and natural sediments on shallow‐ ...

  • Managing the impact from shale gas drilling

    Shale gas has transformed the energy market in the United States where drilling is underway in 17 states, with more than 80,000 wells drilled or permitted since 2005. Deposits elsewhere in the world are under varying degrees of exploration. The main environmental impacts of the process are water usage, waste water management, methane emissions, groundwater and soil contamination. These are ...

  • Global Shale Gas Development: Water Availability & Business Risks

    This report analyzes water availability across all potentially commercial shale resources worldwide.It also reveals that water availability could limit shale resource development on every continent except Antarctica. Shale resources are unevenly distributed worldwide and, for the most part, not located where freshwater is abundant. For example, China, Mexico, and South Africa have some of the ...

  • Drilling Muds and Drill Cuttings Recovery for Beneficial Reuse

    Drilling Muds Drilling mud, also known as drilling fluid, is a vital component of the drilling process. It helps in the process of drilling boreholes into the earth where holes are required for extraction of oil and gas, core sampling and various other purposes. It is broadly of three types, including water-based, oil-based, and synthetic-based. Among all of these, synthetic-based muds ...

  • Crosshole resistivity survey case study 2

    Crosshole resistivity survey to search out industrial waste water This exploration survey used the crosshole resistivity technique to observe whether or not an industrial waste water plant is leaking. Chemical analyses found that this specific waste water has a low resistivity compare to normal groundwater. Our recent example shows at depth of 45m a comparatively high resistive zone fabricated ...

  • Centrifuge Technology in Drilling Fluid Recycling

    Drilling fluid additives and the water that contains them are an essential part and expense of successfully completing a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) installation, and the longer the bore and larger the product being installed, the more drilling fluids cost. Therefore, it makes economic sense to recycle drilling fluids by removing cuttings and recirculating the cleaned ...

  • Drilling Fluids Market Will Grow at a steady Rate of 8.2% from 2014 to 2020: Grand View Research, Inc

    The global market for drilling fluids is expected to reach USD 14.92 billion by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing drilling activities mainly in South America and Asia Pacific is expected to drive the market for drilling fluids. Grand View Research also observes that depleting natural has been prompting industry players to shift their focus towards exploring ...


  • Water reclamation from shale gas drilling flow-back fluid using a novel forward osmosis–vacuum membrane distillation hybrid system

    This study examined the performance of a novel hybrid system of forward osmosis (FO) combined with vacuum membrane distillation (VMD) for reclaiming water from shale gas drilling flow-back fluid (SGDF). In the hybrid FO-VMD system, water permeated through the FO membrane into a draw solution reservoir, and the VMD process was used for draw solute recovery and clean water production. Using a SGDF ...

  • In Deep Water

    In spring of 2013 the Rockmore ROK 500DH hammer was able to get a water-well driller in Washington, US out of a tight spot when a competitors hammer failed to reach the water table for the well he was drilling. The driller was using a hammer that was getting no penetration rate at 1,300 ft. Looking for help, he reached out to a Rockmore distributor in his area who was able to supply him with the ...
