GCE Group to develop a new technology for Irkutsk Oil Company

18.05.2017

GCE-Ecology (a member of GCE Group) and Irkutsk Oil Company LLC signed a contract on development of a drilling wastes recycling technology.

GCE experts are going to perform research and development works on drilling wastes recycling into soil-forming material using sub-products from local plants. The works are to be completed in early June 2018. The final stage of the project will be obtaining approval from the State Environmental Assessment Service.

Drilling wastes mostly consist of broken bits of solid materials carried to the surface by drilling fluid. Such wastes are extremely toxic and harmful for people, animals and environment. Disposal and burial of drilling wastes according to the methods applied in 1990s, i.e. dumping non-detoxified cuts into the sea and burying untreated wastes in earth storages, cause long-term disruption of the environment oil production areas. Today, the industry major leaders are interested in recycling drilling wastes and further using them in oil refineries or construction. Such technologies will help to maintain balance between technogenic needs of the society and its responsibility to protect the environment.

Irkutsk Oil Company is one of the largest independent producers of crude hydrocarbons in Russia. IOC focuses on geological studies, exploration and production of crude hydrocarbons on fields and licensed mineral sites in the East Siberia – Irkutsk region and Sakha Republic (Yakutia).
