The Company`s treatment of production and consumption waste is carried out at the Eco Centre facilities or Waste Management Complex. The facility ensures cost-efficient and environmentally safe recycling and treatment of drilling cuttings and fluids and is truly considered to be an example of the leading drilling waste management practice in the West-Qazaqstan Oblast.
The best available technologies are applied at the KPO Eco Centre facilities for treating production and consumption waste allowing not only reducing the volume and hazards of waste, but also extracting valuable components as well as treating waste for further reuse. Waste recovery to the process stream exercised by the Company is the best possible way to re-use the waste generated in drilling operations.
The KPO Eco Centre comprises five waste treatment facilities, as well as a Landfill for their safe disposal:
- Thermo-mechanical cutting cleaning facility (TCC),
- Rotary Kiln Incinerator (RKI),
- General Purpose Incinerator (GPI),
- Liquids Treatment Plant (LTP),
- Waste Segregation Unit (WSU).
