Benefits of Adding a Cuttings Edge Energy VCD to Your Project

Recovers Engineered Drilling Fluid

Untreated cuttings are saturated with drilling fluid. Make-up of this fluid is not only costly, but also represents added unnecessary disposal costs. We have demonstrated that while recovering significant fluid we are able to maintain mud integrity expectations.

Lowers Number of Disposal Loads

Because the solids are more stable, the volume of cuttings loaded for transport and disposal can be increased. More importantly, the addition of sawdust is unnecessary (outside of cleanup-which is minimal with the Cuttings Edge Energy Closed-Loop Handling System), as surface section and centrifuge underflow waste can both be stabilized with processed drill cuttings from the VCD.

Lowers Total Disposal Volume/Weight

With the drilling fluid and stabilizer removed from the cuttings, the overall disposal volumes and/or weight is reduced. As the volume and/or weight is reduced, so are the disposal costs fluid we are able to maintain mud integrity expectations.

  • Able to ship waste to nearest facility
  • Only stabilized cuttings to be transported off location
  • Less overall trucks on the road
    • Less if any make up oil
    • Sawdust
    • Waste Loads
  • Additional savings relative to the price per m3 of oil
  • Reduction in Carbon Tax Footprint

Product is stock piled and processed at intervals during drill process and does not directly affect drilling operations maintenance.

Our sample washers provide a clean, safe method to wash drill cutting samples. They are easily rigged up with only an air hose required for operation. It can be shipped and operated inside our combo container for faster set up and tear down timelines.

As an option, they are a lightweight design that allows them to be moved to more convenient locations on the rig if desired.

Each unit comes with 150′ of air hose and requires (1) air coupler connection.

Fire Extinguishers

Our wheeled fire extinguishers may be shipped individually or in our combo units, which provide a smaller transportation footprint and a safer method of transportation, from location to location. They are available in the following sizes;

150 lb. Wheeled

300 lb. Wheeled

Our technicians complete frequent and thorough inspections to ensure certification and operational requirements are complete and up to date.

Sorb Roll

Sorb Roll provides a safe, clean work environment by absorbing tracked oil and settled vapors. It provides excellent traction and works well in places such as the mud tanks, rig floor, dog house, pump house, work benches and well-site trailer entrances.

This product can be shipped individually or inclusive of our combo units, which are fitted with convenient roll out spools for this product.

Combo Unit

We understand that time equals money. Our combo unit serves to save on transportation as well as set up/tear down time and cost. It contains oil based support equipment in a heated, well lit, safe environment. It is fully self contained for spills and comes with fully equipped parts cabinets to support the equipment aboard. The equipment aboard has designated positions and is fastened properly for safe shipping. It is a one touch, roll off option, that provides quick and easy set up of support equipment.

By using a unique solids removal process developed by our team, our technicians are trained to optimize the system throughout the course of the well to ensure maximum clean fluid is returned to the active drilling system, while maintaining dry stackable drill cuttings.

Each unit comes with 125′ of electrical cord and operates on 480 volt 3-phase power.

Shale Auger

Our shale augers are useful to assist in maximizing the operator’s time management. It safely moves drill cuttings from the dryer face and prevents flow back. This process allows the operator to rest or complete other tasks during fast drilling situations, such as lease/road maintenance, unloading trucks, and moving pipe or pallets etc.
