Cuttings Pile Screening

Project Image
Client: BP
Date: 2008
Location: UK

The oil and gas industry had a commitment to screen all its cuttings piles for environmental significance prior to June 2008 against the assessment criteria specified in OSPAR recommendation 2006/5. Aquatera was contracted by BP to undertake this exercise on their behalf.

A range of geophysical and environmental data supplied by BP was used in conjunction with a number of factors generated in-house using existing R&D data to estimate the two key assessment parameters defined by OSPAR oil loss to water column and persistence. The report provided an assessment of all of the relevant multi-well installations and identified the potentially significant data gaps.
