Pitless Drilling

Conservation, protection and preservation of environment are the responsibility of every human being. Therefore, natural resources of the country are to be utilized optimally without adversely affecting either the health of the people or the environment. Drilling wastes pose a potential threat to human health and the environment due to the presence of significant concentrations of heavy metals, salts, hydrocarbons and other organic compounds.

Petropath Fluids India Pvt Ltd, engaged in waste treatment, disposal of cuttings and water base mud treatment for reuse the water and safe disposal of drilled cuttings. A uniquely engineered on-site drilling waste treatment without holds the potential for eliminating the widespread use of environmentally problematic reserve pits, while lowering costs in the process. The chemical and mechanical process involves removing and treating drilled solids from the system, with the waste collected in a modified catch tank. The system that maximize the ability to re-use and recycle water and drilling fluids.

REASONS FOR PITLESS DRILLING

  • Economical Waste Management System
  • Eco friendly
  • Instant approval to drill the wells from PCB.
  • No Land/Area Issues and Time Saving
  • 100% On-Site Operations (Except Salt recovery)
  • Water conservation
  • No wastage of Mud
  • Useful Dried Cuttings
  • Easy Waste Handling

 Its Closed loop system
The total cost of a closed loop system includes the following major items: surface damage payment, solids removal, water, mud, ancillary equipment, flocculation unit, labour, and chemicals.
An operator can expect less surface damage for wells drilled without pits. If the surface land is used for growing row crops or other crops for which level ground is important, subsequent subsidence of a reclaimed pit may be a burden to the surface owner. Moreover, many farmers claim to experience a long-term loss of production from the land on which a pit was constructed. Pitless Drilling is the only solution for all the problems associated with the pits.

Cost

Once a closed loop system is designed, its cost must be compared to the cost of constructing and reclaiming reserve pits. The cost to construct and reclaim a reserve pit is fixed, whereas the cost of using a closed loop system increases over time. The longer it takes to drill a well, the less economically beneficial a closed loop system will be. A break-even point for a particular well or group of wells can be determined by calculating the costs of pit and pitless drilling as a function of time.

The overall Pitless drilling can save an operator’s money by

  • Mud
  • Land
  • Water
  • Chemicals
  • Vehicle Mobility
  • No Civil Works and No thick HDPE liners
  • Drill site construction and closure costs per well.
  • Operator Liability costs will be reduced up to nil.
  • 100% Environmental Friendly.
