2017-01-18 United Kingdom: Extractiion of Precious Metals from Oil and Gas Drilling Mud and Cattings Waste


 

 Extractiion of Precious Metals from Oil and Gas Drilling Mud and Cattings Waste

Description of the project offered: 
In oil and gas industry, drilling fluids play an important role in drilling operation by providing relatively better shale inhibition, lubricity, and thermal stability characteristics. Iin particular, the well drilling process produces two main types of wastes; drill cuttings, and spent mud. the Oil and gas industry generates a large tonnage amount of spent drilling fluid, produced water, and drill cuttings, that are waste and often disposed, mainly in land fill, following treatment to meet current enviroinmental and human health regulations.
This project will aim to extract precious metals from the oil and gas industrial exploration operational discharges. We have wealth of experience in this feild on oil and gas waste management and we need partners in:

Industiral chemical processing (small and large scale)
Mining and extraction of scarse mineral technology and methodology
Waste managment (solid and fluid)
Environmental policly makers and regulator ( one partner)
Any other relevant contribution welcome

We already have Partners from Spain, Poland and UK, so limited spaces from these countries - other EU and Associated States are most welcome
