Soiltech has been awarded a contract for the treatment of contaminated water (slop) with an operator onboard a drilling vessel in Mexico which will be undertaking drilling operations from Q2 2023.
Stig H. Christiansen, CEO in Soiltech, comments; “We are pleased to be awarded this contract. This will also be our first operation in Mexico and as such it represents an important milestone for us. Soiltech will contribute to lowering total well cost and reduce the client’s emissions through reduced waste and maximum recovery and reuse. It is very motivating for us to be selected by our clients who are paving the way as tighter environmental regulations come into effect in Mexican waters from 2023”.
Soiltech’s slop treatment system (“STT”) is an energy efficient and high capacity on-site mechanical technology which treats water contaminated with oil and particles, slop and brine. The treated oil and water may be reused in the drilling process, or alternatively the treated water may be safely discharged to sea.
