Fossil Energy – Rotomill Technology
Specialist drilling waste management company, TWMA, has secured a seven-figure contract with a major North Sea oil and gas operator.
The award will see TWMA deploy its RotoMill technology on a harsh environment semi-submersible unit in the Central North Sea.
TWMA was chosen as the specialist provider of offshore processing services in order to remove waiting-on weather risk associated with a ship-to-shore approach, while improving the client’s environmental performance through a 50% carbon emissions reduction.
The RotoMill well site processing solution allows drilling waste to be processed at source, eliminating the need to transport drilling waste long distances for treatment or disposal.
The RotoMill ensures uninterrupted drilling in the harshest offshore environments by eliminating any waiting-on weather time associated with drill cuttings handling. Processing drill cuttings offshore improves the risk profile of drilling projects by reducing lifting operations by up to 95%.
Removing the need for shipping drilling waste onshore negates the need for supply vessels, skips and onshore processing which not only lowers the total cost of waste ownership but reduces carbon emissions for operators by up to 50%, compared with the traditional skip and ship method.
