- 2” blow down line
- 4” clean out
- Full length steam coil
- Skid or picker load
- Simple operation
- All most no maintenance
- Water conservation
- Haul less water
- Boiler runs cleaner
- Less fluid disposal
- Less boiler chemical – water returned to boiler is already treated
- Safety – no steam cloud, no ice field, no melt hole
- Environmental – no high ph water on the ground
- Pays for itself
- The ERCB does not recognize surface release of boiler blow down fluids as acceptable.
- Boiler blow down water (ph 12.5) exceeds environmental allowance of water (ph 9) to be expelled on the soil or water table
- Total containment is mandatory in zero spill and highly sensitive drilling and servicing areas
- No land reclamation is required
- Eliminates the chance of personnel being hit by hot water or steam
- No pits or trenches posing a danger of stepping or falling into
- Eliminates freezing of lines – drainage valves & attachments
EFFECTIVE WATER MAINTENANCE:
- Environmentally responsible due to fresh water use legislation
- Accurate blow down volume
- Recovered water- used in boiler, drilling mud or rig water
REDUCTION OF DRILLING and SERVICING OPERATIONS COSTS:
- Saving on soda ash and caustic soda by reusing active ph boiler water
- Trucking costs – water hauling and water disposal reduced
- Land reclamation cost savings – no pit or trench to remove or replace
- No dilution or retesting of water for disposal
- Trucking costs – tank can be secured on top of the rig matting
- Will normally stay with rig for winter once rented
Features & Benefits:
Flare tanks were originally used to replace flare pits for drilling operations in zero or low disturbance areas. The use of flare tanks has become much more common in last few years due to environmental and safety reasons. The cost of the cleanup of a spill after a large kick or blow out due to pit failure can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. RE: blowing the back out of the pit & painting the bush or a farmer’s field with mud and hydrocarbons.
The flare tank will handle a 10 cube kick and has a 10 meter unload hard line in case the tank should need to be emptied during well control operations.
This mud can be returned to the rig tanks for use. – Zero environmental impact, no clean up. No flare pit to dig, treat or fill in.
As far as safety is concerned using a flare tank, well gas can be safely burned off 16 feet in the air using positive electronic ignition. The stacks can be safely ignited 100 ft from the tank. This is a lot safer than sending a man to the pit to light a tiger torch or pail of sawdust and diesel.
The vacuum truck driver is never placed in a hazardous location. RE: placing a hose into a burning or sour (H2s) pit.
The tanks come with 2 – 8” vent lines (from the rig degassers) that run directly to stacks on the flare tank. These lines swivel 180 degrees as well as slide 20 inches back and forth.
The tanks also have 2 schedule 80 – 4” gut lines (from the rig manifold shack).
A schedule 80 – 6” diverter line (if a diverter is used on surface casing the 6” line must run from the diverter to the tank with no restrictions. You cannot hold back any pressure with a diverter)
These 3 lines swivel 180 degrees. This makes rigging in our flare tanks a lot easier than many of the competitions.
This is the fourth generation of igniters on our tanks. They have been developed over 4 years of field operation.
