Tank Bottom Sludge Oil Recovery

Posted by Sophie Cochrane on 24-Jul-2018 10:00:00

SASES receive many oil sludge waste samples, for this particular project the sample provided was black, oil coloured and contained a high oil content. The sample had been recovered from tank bottom sludge from a crude oil storage tank and sent to us by one of our customers to try and create a three-phase split of oil, water and solids.

The Oil Sludge Market as a Resource for the Oil Industry

Posted by Sophie Cochrane on 13-Mar-2018 11:00:00

World Bank reports that there are approximately 9 billion metric tonnes of oil sludge on the planet. This oil sludge is generated as a by-product of the oil drilling and refining process, and consists of water, oil, solids and a range of chemicals that may have been introduced to the sludge at some point in the process.

MIST Month - "323" Almost Any Oil Waste

Posted by Sophie Cochrane on 23-Jan-2018 10:00:00

The MIST 323 system is used in both oil slops treatment and oil sludge treatment, and is capable of treating both solid waste and liquid waste. Solid waste including drill cuttings, oil sand, and heavy oil sludge. Liquid waste including oil slops, oil based mud waste, decommissioning waste, well washings, and refinery waste.

SASES Successfully Handles USA Oil Slops Treatment

Posted by Sophie Cochrane on 19-Dec-2017 10:00:00

SASES was supplied with a sample of oil slops waste (pictured right) from operations in Texas, USA where an effective chemical dosing and separation process was being sought. For this project, SASES were set the task of maximising oil and solids recovery so that the clean water fraction could be recovered for polishing and safe disposal via salt-water disposal wells. This would require SASES products to effectively split the waste into three distinct phases of oil, water and solids, in order to maximise the recovery of clean oil thus retaining a high water quality for disposal.
