Address increasing environmental regulations safely, reliably and efficiently
The number of crane lifts required to perform traditional skip and ship operations can be very high resulting in increased health, safety and environmental risk. In addition, in inclement weather conditions, cranes may not be able to operate, which can cause drilling operations to cease. This combined with increasing environmental regulations governing drill cuttings disposal, especially in offshore environments, has led to the need for safer and more dependable technology for bulk storage and handling of drill cuttings.
In many cases, the highly variable properties of drill cuttings limit the ability to adequately discharge conventional pneumatic silos. Halliburton Baroid developed the HCB™ tank, a unique and patented product for reliable and efficient discharge of bulk materials from pneumatic silos.
HCB Tanks save space at your rig site while holding 20% more material in a fully enclosed environment
Single cone pneumatic tanks create limitations in storage capacity of the tank in a set footprint.
The HCB tank does not rely on a high angle, conical bottom to ensure mass flow discharge and can hold approximately 20% more bulk material in the same footprint as a high angle, conical bottomed silo.
Modular and customizable to meet your needs
HCB Tanks have a range of storage capacities and the tanks can store and discharge cuttings in various states ranging from dry power to liquid. We pride ourselves in engineering solutions customized to meet your operational needs.
Simple and safe bulk transfer of drill cuttings and other oilfield wastes
The transfer of cuttings from an offshore/onshore location is automated with the SupaVac 400 cuttings collection and pumping system. The system pneumatically conveys materials such as drill cuttings, tank bottoms, heavy crude sludge and sand slurries to any location on the rig site, or to Halliburton's Honey Comb Bottom™ tanks on a boat for ship to shore transfer. It is applicable for all types of contaminated cuttings, both wet and dry.
This robust system is designed to operate in hazardous locations, safely collecting and pumping materials. Because it is air-operated, the SupaVac 400 is intrinsically safe, significantly reducing risk at the rigsite. Cuttings move through the system entirely enclosed, eliminating the risk of spills and ensuring minimal NPT.
SupaVac SV400 unit is the most compact and versatile air-operated vacuum/blower unit in the oil industry. The unit is highly portable and can be installed anywhere on the rig without modifications. To introduce feed the unit can operate on suction mode or be gravity fed like traditional vacuum blowers.
