Why Solids Control is a Game Changer for the Oil Industry!

Waste is inevitable in any activity of construction, but there is not necessarily an issue so much with waste as there is with how it is dealt with. Technology has been instrumental in helping avoid waste in the oil industry, and that technology is solids control.

Solids control is a technique used in oil drilling. It is typically located on a drilling rig and is used to separate the solids in the drilling mud. These solids are created by the crushing of the drill bits that are carried out of the well surface. 

Essentially, solids control is the recycling of the drilling mud, and it saves costs regarding mud quantity and disposal. Although there are other forms of waste management in the oil industry, solids control is one of the best options to manage drilling waste and helps to minimize the environmental impact of oil drilling.

Access matting is a process of using mats to create a barrier between the earth and a job site. Often access matting is used during oil drilling or other large construction projects. These mats create a barrier for specific ground protection. 

There are many different materials that access mats can be made out of. These materials might include wood, composite, fiberglass, rubber, or plastic.

Access matting prevents environmental damage, and although many people associate all aspects of the oil and construction industry with hurting the environment, it actually does the opposite. 

Not only can access matting help you get your project done faster, but it can also help prevent negative environmental impact.

Climate change and the freight transportation industry are very much intertwined. The freight industry generates eight to ten percent of the world’s carbon emissions, making it one of the biggest carbon polluters on Earth. In turn, climate change creates secondary effects from infrastructure damage all the way down to micro-scale problems like surety bond claims. 

It’s critical that logistics professionals understand this cycle, as well as the steps to breaking it. By seeing the complex and interconnected ways in which freight transportation and climate change interact, we can analyze ways to stop the process before it’s too late.

Biofuel is an excellent alternative solution to non-renewable fuel. There is a general assumption that biofuel is only used in the transport industry. Biofuel provides clean up and cooking oil, gives us hydrogen, and much more. Biofuels act as fuel alternatives from central home heating to fueling vehicles.

In the past several years, researchers and scientists have revolutionized the use of biofuel, and they have achieved several milestones.

Here are some of the new updates on biofuel:
