M-I SWACO designed CYCLOTECH sand receiving and cleaning systems to provide an efficient, compact and robust solution to post-separation treatment. The scope of this post-separation function largely depends on the method of solids disposal. Typically, disposal is accomplished either overboard, through solids re-injection or in dedicated landfills.
The main functions of the CYCLOTECH sand receiving and cleaning systems are:
The main elements of the system are:
To meet the oil-on-sand specification, the oil-on-sand is removed by:
To meet the oil-in-water specification, the oil in the water is removed by:
If the sand is to be disposed to sea or re-injected back into the reservoir, the CYCLOTECH Sandscape system simply pumps the solids at a controlled concentration to either an overboard disposal caisson or a solids re-injection system.
If sand disposal is at a landfill, M-I SWACO offer the following disposal options:
