Arkleen Oil and Gas Limited built an ultra modern Liquid mud plant at Federal Ocean Terminal (FOT) Onne Oil and Gas Free Zone.
The plant has a combined capacity of 20,000 bbls & 550mt respectively to service the Exploration and Production companies. The location of the mud plant, just behind the FOT quayside, makes it a perfect option for a mud and chemical supplier as it is possible to run pumping lines to the quayside and allow transfer of products to the supply vessel or trucks without the utilization of several hoses.
The plant has an impressive configuration and is made up of:
• (1x8000bbls) base oil tank
• (6x1200bbls) liquid mud tanks
• (4x1200bbls) brine storage tanks
• It also has (2x250bbls) mud mixing pit
• (1x300bbls) brine mixing pit
• (1x 9mt) cutting bottle
• (2x175mt) dry bulk silos for barite
• (2x 100mt) dry bulk silos for Bentonite
The pumping system consists of 3 Mission Magnum 8x6x14MCM 250 series centrifugal pump coupled with 6-71T Detroit diesel engine. One is dedicated to brine; one for mud and the 3rd one as a back-up.For the bulk plant, there are 2 Ingersoll Rand Diesel Air Compressors, Model XP825WCU each with a capacity of 825CFM at 125psi, one for the bulk plant and the other as back-up.Other facilities include a Mud Laboratory; Spare parts room; Changing room and offices. This plant can handle a minimum of three wells and a maximum of six wells at the same time to support operations on land, swamp, shallow, deep and ultra deep offshore oilfields locations. The plot at the FOT also has space for stacking of chemicals and other materials. We also have in place Materials Handling and Logistics Agreements with Intels, as well as a valid Licence issued by the Free Zone Authority of the Federal Government for Arkleen to operate as a Free Zone Enterprise.
