BOR Base Oil Recovery
 
Approximately 15% of the total required amount of base oil for Oil Based Mud (OBM) can be reclaimed from the thermal desorbtion process (TDU) that OBM cuttings are subjected to when shipped to shore. For the operators this closes the waste loop and forms a significant contribution to CO2 reduction.
The old drawbacks used to include a higher aromatics and above all a nasty smell. Our process removes contaminants and has been tested as generating near virgin (and non smelling) spec baseoil.
