Mud Buckets

 

When it comes to the oilfield, you can never be too safe. That’s why it’s especially important to take proactive measure to prevent slips, trips, and falls on the job site. This includes the rig floor. Choosing to include mud buckets as part of your long-term safety plan can help you minimize spillage and increase safety.

How Mud Buckets Work

As pipes are tripped out of the drilling hole, a hydraulic mechanism loosens the fittings. Instead of spilling out drilling mud, oil, brine water and other debris all over the rig floor, many operators choose to utilize mud buckets. The equipment fits over the loosened pipes at the joint. When the pipes are pulled apart, any liquid or other waste is suctioned off from a tube at the bottom of the mud bucket, away from the rig floor.

Why You Should Use Mud Buckets

Any oilfield operator puts a premium on safety. In addition to tailgate meetings, personal protective equipment, and H2S monitors, it’s critical to take safety measures to avoid a dangerous work environment. Using mud buckets is beneficial in three ways:

  1. Environmental: Instead of allowing dirty brine water to reabsorb into the water table, a mud bucket diverts the waste water into a container. This reduces damage to the environment.
  2. Cleanliness: Instead of a slick, oily mess that needs to be cleaned up, mud buckets keep your rig floor clean. Though the liquid in the pipes may be mostly brine water, it’s can still contain bits of oil, drilling mud, and oil.
  3. Safety: Slips, trips, and falls are a serious safety hazard encountered by every oilfield operation. Using a mud bucket reduces the risk since waste is removed from the rig floor with tubing.
