Solid Drilling Waste Management Technology Company Expands Scope
LONGVIEW, Texas – Scott Environmental Services, Inc., a solid drilling waste management technology company, announced today its registration with the Oklahoma State Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors, authorizing Scott to offer professional engineering services to the public.“Scott Environmental’s practices are based on established engineering principles and sound evidence-based science, so registering as an engineering firm seemed to be the most logical next step,” said Blake Scott, president of Scott. “I am pleased we’ve become a full service firm.”
Scott’s Firmus® and Duro℠ processes for managing solid waste produced at drill sites utilize breakthrough “solidification/stabilization” technology, an in-situ remediation field technology that encapsulates contaminants and/or makes them immobile. The processes meet the recycling and/or treatment definition under the EPA and API waste hierarchy.
Services include the engineering for waste disposition, pit closure, and the necessary labor and confirmatory testing by an independent, third-party laboratory following placement of the material. By preparing mud and cuttings through solidification and stabilization, both processes provide similar benefits, which meet supporting loads and environmental closure criteria. These methods provide safe disposal and also produce materials that can be used in high-quality civil engineering structures, i.e., the roads and drill pads needed on many drill sites.
