Drill cuttings treatments
SAR offers the most environmentally friendly solutions available on the market, with a strong focus on recycling and reuse.
Base oil is fully recovered with a high-quality (un-cracked) and can be re-used in new OBM, or as fuel in boilers or diesel engines.
OBM slop treatments
SAR offers cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions for the entire oil-based mud (OBM) slop treatment process.
A large part of our waste to values-approach lies in our ability to recycle and extract the oil from processed waste materials using both our own technology and patented TCC (thermomechanical cuttings cleaner) methods.

SAR has different water treatment methods depending on the origin and the content of contaminants.
Our environmental consultancy division is among the largest in the industry, and we offer competent and experience-based advice on both environmental and economical aspects of waste handling and clean-up projects.
