The MUDCUBE is a system for effectively treatment of drilling fluids. A special designed vacuum system pulls the fluid through the screen and degasses the same fluid.
The cuttings will be processed on the rotating screen and will have very little fluid attached when leaving the screen. No mechanical force is given to the screen and change of screen is no longer a time consuming, costly and ineffective process.
Woodside is Australia’s largest publicly traded oil and gas exploration and production company and one of the world’s leading producers of liquefied natural gas. As the Browse Operator, Woodside leads a group of veteran oil and gas organizations (BHP Billiton, BP, Chevron, and Shell).
MODEC will utilize its proprietary Ring Pontoon (RP) Tension Leg Platform (TLP) design for the Browse DTUs, which will be deployed to the Calliance and Brecknock fields. The FEED is scheduled for completion by the end of August 2011.
MODEC Director and Executive Officer Shashank Karve said, “This is an extremely important project for MODEC and further solidifies MODEC as the premier TLP designer and global supplier. MODEC continues to endeavor to bring innovation to the oil and gas marketplace and has staffed this challenging project with a strong focus on safety, cost, and operational efficiency. Should MODEC be selected for the supply of the Calliance and Brecknock TLPs, they will be MODEC’s sixth and seventh TLPs and the first to be designed and installed in Australia. MODEC has a strong history of industry first innovation and looks forward to providing Woodside and its partners with the very best TLP technology. We will execute the FEED with proven and experienced TLP personnel, with the target to be the company selected to provide Woodside and its partners with the very best in TLP technology.”
