Truck-mounted thermal treatment of drill cuttings and associated wastes on location
The TCC RotoTruck is a fully mobile thermal processing unit that can travel to remote onshore locations worldwide.
Derived from our industry-leading TCC RotoMill, this truck-mounted unit is a compact, light and mobile technology specially designed for land based projects.
The TCC RotoTruck has become widely recognised within the oil and gas industry as a leading onshore thermal solution for treating drilling wastes at source.
The technology processes and recycles drilling wastes by separating them into their constituent parts of oil, water and solids for recycling and reuse.
Oil – The oil recovered by the process can be recycled back into the drilling mud system. We use relatively low temperatures during the process to ensure that the oil is unaffected by the thermal desorption and is free of any odour.
Water – The recovered water can be reused to dampen the powder at point of discharge or disposed of in line with legislation and client requirements.
Solids – The inert solids powder phase can be used in industry as a filler/bulking agent or disposed of in line with legislation and client requirements.
A single unit can process up to 9 tonnes per hour or 70,000 metric tonnes per annum, and it can operate 24 hours per day. The unit does not require extended warm up or shut down periods. This ensures that shift patterns and processing hours can be adjusted to meet the specific needs of a project as well as the rate at which cuttings are generated from the well.
The TCC RotoTruck trailer is designed for quick rig-up, rig-down time and versatility as the unit can be moved from rig to rig within a field or set at a central processing site. Furthermore, it does not require crane lifts for rigging-up or down, making it safer and cost effective.
Our computerised monitor and control system allows drilling wastes to be controlled on a continuous basis.
The process can operate at any temperature to suit the base oil properties by adjusting the control set point within the operating system. Its modern control unit provides the operator with a climate controlled environment incorporating the latest technology, a touch screen monitor and safety systems.
The technology can be used separately or in conjunction with the TWMA CCDS and TWMA Vacuum System to provide an integrated drilling waste system capturing all materials at the work site.
