ABERDEEN, UK -- Chevron North Sea has contracted TWMA to install and operate its offshore waste recycling system on the Stena Spey drilling rig in the UK North Sea.


Ronnie Garrick, TWMA’s managing director, said: “Using [our] environmentally sensitive TCCRotoMill and CCDS system allows Chevron to contain, reuse, and recycle drill cuttings on-site, which increases efficiency and improves environmental performance offshore by removing the need for skip and ship operations and reusing the recovered oil in the drilling fluid."

The TCCRotoMill is a thermal cuttings processing system that recycles drill cuttings by breaking them down into oil, water, and solid components for reuse.
