Since inception in 1999, Frigate Upstream & Energy Services Limited has been at the forefront of efficient drilling and environmental Waste Management activities for the major Oil & Gas companies. Central to our business are our modernized Low Temperature Thermal Desorption Units, (LTTDU).
The Low Temperature Thermal Desorption Unit is ideal for effective processing of oil based drill cuttings, oil sludge, tank bottoms, refinery wastes, contaminated filter cakes and other contaminated materials and wastes through a distillation process and recovery of any hydrocarbon content, which will evaporate at a temperature below 340 degree Celsius. The plant is capable of extracting over 99.5% of base oil from drilling wastes leaving the treated waste cuttings with a total residue not exceeding 0.5% oil content. The Low Temperature Thermal Desorption Unit has a feeding rate of 10-15tons per hour.
The Low Temperature Thermal Desorption Unit is an effective process of remediating wastes. It also incorporates sound environmental practices which are consistent with the standards of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), and other environmental regulatory agencies.
