Rosneft develops environmentally friendly drilling fluids production technology, also for the Vostok Oil project

Moscow, December 25 - Neftegaz.RU. Rosneft and specialists of the Siberian Federal University have developed the technology of production of environmentally friendly drilling fluids based on seed oils and containing biodegradable components.

The development of Russian green drilling fluids rivalling costly foreign analogues in terms of functionality is the task of utmost importance. Drilling fluids of the high environmental standard can be used in the development of the fields with the fragile ecosystem of the Far North, including those of the Vostok Oil project.

Now the key company’s academic partner in Eastern Siberia is conducting complex fundamental research of the formulae of next-generation green drilling fluids.
The work is conducted on 2 fronts at once. The 1st is the research of the modifications of tree bark and the hydrolysis lignin (a complex polymeric compound contained in the cells of vascular plants) to add the new physical and chemical properties.

It is necessary for the production of environmentally friendly drill fluids, organic binding materials, and absorbents. The work is conducted together with the Institute of the Chemistry and Chemical Technology of the RAS Siberian branch.

The 2nd is the development of biodegradable components for the drilling fluids based on the technical seed oils produced from the Cruciferae oilseeds cultivated in Krasnoyarsk Region. This work is conducted jointly with the specialists of the Krasnoyarsk State Agrarian University.

More than 100 Rosneft classes and the Siberian Federal university graduates with industry-specific education work in Rosneft.
