Cubility bags solids control system deal with Statoil for Johan Sverdrup

Cubility's MudCube

Cubility AS, an industry provider of solids control and efficiency solutions around drilling operations, has signed a multi-million dollar deal to provide the MudCube solution to Norwegian operator Statoil, for installation on the Johan Sverdrup field.

Even Gjesdal, Cubility CEO, said: “We are delighted that Cubility and our MudCube solution is to play such an important role on one of the most important industrial projects in Norway over the next 50 years – something that is testament to our long-term partnership and collaboration with Statoil.”

According to Cubility, the MudCube is the industry’s first compact solids control system that eliminates the process of shaking fluid and solids, delivering improved drilling efficiency, lower mud consumption, reduced waste volumes and improved HSE.

The company says that the MudCube is a compact, vacuum-based filtration system that removes solids from drilling fluids and has been adopted on a number of offshore rigs in in the North Sea, Middle East, Far East and North and South America.

How it works?

Cubility explains that the MudCube does not rely on high G-forces to separate mud and the drilled solids, as it is the case with traditional solids control systems, so called “shale shakers”. With the MudCube, drilling fluids are vacuumed through a rotating filter belt using high airflow to separate the cuttings from the fluid.

The cleaned drilling fluids are then returned to the active mud system and the drilled solids are discharged either directly overboard (if they meet environmental discharge regulations) or to a cuttings handling system, the company says.

Johan Sverdrup project

Located 155 kilometers west of Stavanger, Johan Sverdrup is one of the five biggest oil fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf with expected resources of between 1.7 to 3 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Production start-up is scheduled for the end of end 2019 and will consist of four platforms.
