Turkmenistan Drilling Waste Disposal Facility

ARM and our teaming partner Environmental Solutions International (ESI) prepared the design of a modern waste management disposal facility to properly manage wastes from off-shore oil drilling operations and associated on-shore support activities in Hazar, Turkmenistan.  Our contract for design engineering and construction quality assurance services was with a Turkish construction company that is completing the waste management facility as a design-build project.  The owner and operator of the facility was Dragon Oil Turkmenistan Limited.  ARM’s partner, ESI, completed a hydrogeological investigation of the proposed site. ARM also developed the design for the facility, which included separate cells for disposal of water-based drill cuttings and muds, oil-based drill cuttings and muds, and general plant trash and debris from operations. This was the fourth project that ARM has performed with ESI in Turkmenistan.  

ESI has an office with a staff of six in Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan.

This is the Drilling Waste Disposal Facility in Hazar, Turkmenistan. It was the first lined drilling waste landfill in Turkmenistan. It separately handles oil-based drilling wastes, water-based drilling waste, and general plant trash.
