Simon Presentation - - OBM Flocculation

Crabbe Presentation-- New Shaker Automation Compliments and Optimizes the Waste Management Process
 
 Reg Minton Presentation ---First Defence in Waste Management – Novel Application of Triple Deck Shaker Technology


Simon Overview
 
  • Basic Chemistry of Flocculation 
  • Current Technology – Dilution, Mechanical Solids Control Treatment 
  • OBM Flocculation Technology 
  • Mud Properties – Standard v/s Treated Mud for various OBM mud systems 
  • Current usage areas and future possibilities

Crabbe Overview

  • Shaker Automation Compliments
  • Optimizes the Waste Management Process
Minton Overview
 
Efficient primary drilled cuttings removal at the Shale Shaker is widely recognized as the first step in overall waste minimization from the drilling operation. Entrained fine solids result in a deterioration of the drilling fluid properties and the subsequent re-conditioning of the fluid builds excessive volume, that needs to be disposed of, and is costly. Field data, collected over eighteen months of operation of a novel three deck shale shaker design will be presented. The data will relate to flow handling capacities, screening performance, shaker screen consumption, fluid dilution rates and the control of low gravity solids over a series of wells drilled in a range of North Sea locations.

Gerard Simon pursued a career in the Oilfield Industry after receiving a B.S. from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.  He began work with MiSWACO in Houston, TX, in Research and Engineering groups of both Drilling Fluids and Solids Control Equipment, and is currently a Project Engineer for the Environmental & Process Solutions group, Central US Region, based in Denver, CO. 


Gerard has been chiefly involved with the development of technologies such as Shale Membrane Technology (SMT), AphronICS WBM system, OBM Flocculation (Reclaim), WBM Dewatering and Production Waste Management (PWM).




Mark Crabbe has been in the solids control equipment business for over twenty years. During his career he has served in a variety of positions beginning with rental sales in Houston in 1981. He later gained valuable experience in operations as Regional Manager in Louisiana where he was responsible for operations as well as sales.   Upon returning to Houston, Mark was a Product Manager for the Screen Market. In 2000 Mark joined Brandt and has served as: Senior Project Manager, Capital Sales Manager, and his current position as PLM of Shakers and Screens.  Mark earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Technology from the University of Houston in 1977.

 

Reg Minton has 30 years of oilfield experience with a focus on drilling fluids, drilling engineering, operations and technology, predominantly in the European theatre of operations. Since 1992, he has been specifically involved in the resolution of problems associated with drilling wastes, firstly with BP and, for the last 5 years, with M-I SWACO, where he was their Business Development VP for Drilling Waste Management. He joined Axiom in September this year as their Business Development Manager.
