Tech Talks: Delivering Fluid Recovery and Waste Reduction to the Max

In this SPE Tech Talk, join Schlumberger's Calvin Carter as he discusses the latest advancement in rig shakers. Larger hole sections are creating a demand on shakers to keep up with the increase in drilled solids. The challenge is saving on the losses of oil-based drilling fluid at the shaker while also reducing the waste stream associated with it.

Topics covered in this Tech Talk include:

1. What is Mongoose Max? What industry challenges are trying to be addressed with this product.

2. From the perspective of an operator, how will this technology save on operating costs and improve their environmental impacts?

3. Discuss improvements in HSE with the new designs and functionalities.
