Sustainable treatment of oil contaminated waste: oil-based mud (OBM) drill cuttings and soil. (2018)
Thesis
NWINEE, S.A. 2018. Sustainable treatment of oil contaminated waste: oil-based mud (OBM) drill cuttings and soil. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Environmental pollution from oilfield drilling waste poses potential hazards which can lead to ecological imbalance. The predominant pollutant from oilfield waste is petroleum hydrocarbons. Some effects of petroleum hydrocarbon contamination in soil... Read More about Sustainable treatment of oil contaminated waste: oil-based mud (OBM) drill cuttings and soil..

Journal Article
SIDDIQUE, S., KWOFFIE, L., ADDAE-AFOAKWA, K., YATES, K. and NJUGUNA, J. 2019. The crystallinity and thermal degradation behaviour of polyamide 6/oil based mud fillers (PA6/OBMFs) nanocomposites. Polymer degradation and stability [online], 159, pages 139-152. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.polymdegradstab.2018.11.004

The crystallinity and thermal degradation behaviours of Polyamide 6/Oil Based Mud Fillers (PA6/OBMFs) nanocomposites have been investigated using DSC and TGA. TGA indicates the onset decomposition temperature of D1/2 (half-decomposition) is 16º C hig...

Chemical and physical effects of interaction between oilfield chemicals and formation rocks and integration with sand failure prediction models. (2018)
Thesis
WUYEP, E.O. 2018. Chemical and physical effects of interaction between oilfield chemicals and formation rocks and integration with sand failure prediction models. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Sand failure may result in the production of formation sand at the same time the formation fluids are being produced. Sand failure occurs when the formation stress exceeds the strength of the formation, which is derived mainly from the natural materi...

Characterisation of oil based mud waste to explore the possibility in transforming waste into a value added product. (2018)
Presentation / Conference
SIDDIQUE, S., YATES, K. and NJUGUNA, J. 2018. Characterisation of oil based mud waste to explore the possibility in transforming waste into a value added product. Presented at the 6th International conference on sustainable solid waste management (NAXOS 2018), 13-16 June 2018, Naxos, Greece. Athens: National Technical University of Athens [online], paper number 45. Available from: http://uest.ntua.gr/naxos2018/proceedings/pdf/45_NAXOS2018_Siddique_etal.pdf

Waste characterisation is an essential factor in designing sustainable waste management plan. However, waste composition profile is underestimated in oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) industries in the United Kingdom. A three years long in...
