Deck Drain Water Treatment
Deck drain water discharged from the rig draining system vary with the amount of rainfall during the drilling program and also with the wash-water usage. Deck drain water from areas that might come in contact with oil, such as near the rig floor and mud pit area, is collected and sent to a holding tank and oil separation system. The deck drain water is separated before discharge and must meet ”no free oil” requirements. Separated oil is collected and is either incinerated or sent for disposal or recycling.
The presence of solids & or emulsified water in deck drain water may results into waters that contain emulsions and do not comply with regulations.
