Adams Drillers have an extensive experience in the productive use of mud cleaning systems. Special techniques and mud properties are required when using mud-cleaning systems to drill swelling clays and shales. Adams Drillers have perfected the operation of these systems and have successfully drilled many wells in risky, swelling formations.
The system works by removing the cuttings from the drill mud, re-circulating the mud, cleaning and processing it for use back down the hole. Cuttings are discarded into skip bins for approved disposals.
Some of the Benefits include:
• Minimised ground disturbance in sensitivity areas
• Smaller footprint
• Decrease in water usage during drilling
• Faster site rehabilitation
• Safer work environment
• Faster setup times
