ADNOC has contracted a second STT unit from Soiltech for treatment of contaminated water (slop) and brine. The unit started operation in the UAE in Q32022.

Soiltech’s STT units enable ADNOC to treat slop and recover heavily contaminated brine on site. Importantly, this provides for substantial savings, both environmentally and economically. Brine is heavy and expensive drilling mud used in the well to support the formation during completion.

Stig H. Christiansen, CEO in Soiltech, comments; “We are very proud to expand our long-standing relationship with ADNOC. Soiltech’s focus is towards helping our clients achieve more sustainable, safer and more cost-efficient drilling operations, and we thank ADNOC for their continued belief in our solutions and services”.

 Soiltech’s slop treatment system (“STT”) is an on-site mechanical technology which treats water contaminated with oil and particles. The treated oil and water may be reused in the drilling process. The STT reduces our client’s environmental footprint and costs by lowering their CO2 emissions through reduced energy usage, onsite treatment and reuse, and reduced transport of volumes to shore. Soiltech’s technology represent Best Available Technology.
