Specialist drilling waste management company, TWMA, will highlight how its wellsite processing solution has been proven to reduce the carbon emissions of drilling operations by 50% at this year’s ADIPEC.

The company is set to present a technical paper at a session hosted by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) during the conference. The paper, which was co-authored by DNV, will detail the key benefits of its low carbon drilling solutions.

With sustainability and net-zero targets at the top of the industry agenda, TWMA is poised to further support customers to improve their environmental performance, especially in the UAE which represents a third of the company’s business.

Halle Aslaksen, Chief Executive Officer at TWMAHalle Aslaksen, Chief Executive Officer at TWMAHalle Aslaksen, Chief Executive Officer at TWMA, said: “For 20 years TWMA has been lowering the carbon emissions of drilling operations using our TCC RotoMill® wellsite processing technology. Since bringing this technology to the UAE in 2012, we have delivered safe, low cost and sustainable operations to some of the region’s biggest projects, most notably the Upper Zakum development.”

The TCC RotoMill wellsite processing solution allows drilling waste to be processed at the source, eliminating the requirement to ship drilling waste long distances for treatment. The solution significantly lowers carbon emissions, reduces well cost, and improves safety performance.

Mr Aslaksen continues: “We have built a strong business in the UAE over the years by delivering innovative solutions that add value to our customers’ operations. We are always looking for opportunities to share knowledge and best practice and ADIPEC provides a fantastic platform from which to do this. We are very much looking forward to presenting our low carbon drilling solutions to delegates this year.” Aslaksen added.
