Abstract

A method for the treatment of hazardous waste drilling fluids, potentially leading to environmental pollution, is considered. The waste drilling fluid is treated with an inorganic flocculant, an organic flocculant, and a pH regulator. The profile control agent consists of partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide, formaldehyde, hexamethylenetetramine, resorcinol, phenol, and the treated waste drilling fluid itself. For a waste drilling fluid concentration of 2500 mg/L, the gelling time of the profile control agent is 25 h, and the gelling strength is 32,000 mPa.s. Compared with the profile control agent prepared by recirculated water under the same conditions, the present profile control agent displays better stability, salt-resistance, and performance.
