Waste Management - Mud Containment Equipment
One of the recommendations of the UKOOA was that all UK operators should ensure that all installations contracted to or operated by them have oil mud containment systems in place. The guidelines produced contained an idealised list of mechanical containment methods which should be considered when designing new rigs and installations.
The report recognized that it may not be possible to retrofit all items on existing installations, however where certain items are missing there should be containment procedural methods in place to cover the lack of mechanical containment . . .
