Cubility AS, provider of solids control solutions that improve efficiencies, solids control and HSE around drilling operations, has launched the latest evolution of its industry leading solids control solution, the MudCube® X.
Building on the capabilities of the MudCube as a field-proven, suction-based, solids control alternative to vibrating shale shakers, the MudCube X comes with an enhanced modular design allowing for easy integration into all rig designs; and fast installation and maintenance so that the MudCube X is up and running and delivering immediate value to customer operations and rapid ROI.
The MudCube X is engineered to allow for local manufacturing and/or assembly worldwide, providing the benefits of greater drilling efficiencies and unparalleled HSE performance to operators and drilling contractors globally.
“We have listened to the industry need for faster drilling times and lower costs and with the MudCube X, we have responded.” says Even Gjesdal, Cubility CEO.
He continues, “The result is even greater applicability, flexibility and efficiencies; a driving down of costs and an almost immediate impact on the bottom line; and a MudCube X solution that is accessible worldwide. We are enormously proud as to how the MudCube has revolutionised solids control and we look forward to even further market penetration with the MudCube X.”
With the rise in pad drilling and multiple wells, the MudCube X can be added to existing operations and start delivering value in drilling fluids and waste disposal within a matter of days. Furthermore, as opposed to shakers, the MudCube X processes 100% of the mud, thereby immediately increasing performance with as much as 80% more mud recovered than other technologies. When taking this across a field and hundreds of rigs, the impact on the bottom line and investor returns will be significant.
The MudCube is a compact, lightweight solids control system that eliminates the traditional process of shaking fluids from the drilled solids with the negative HSE impact. The MudCube uses a combination of high airflow and a rotating screen filtration system to improve separation efficiency, allowing more drilling fluid to be recycled back to the mud tanks and resulting in dryer cuttings and less waste. This leads to improved drilling efficiencies, reduced operational costs, improved HSE and working conditions.
Over the last few years – both onshore and offshore – the MudCube has played a vital role in helping operators achieve their goals of reduced costs and increased drilling efficiencies with significant contracts in the North Sea, the Middle East, Asia, South America, and the North American land drilling market, where Cubility has developed a major foothold in US shale. Customers (among others) include Equinor, Chevron, Hess, Shell, Dong Energy, Maersk Drilling and Saipem.
Cubility will be presenting a full scale MudCube X live at ONS 2018 in Stavanger, Norway next week. Visit the Cubility stand 9428 in Hall 9.
