This research study focuses on the removal treatment of oil residue on the drill cuttings before disposal. For this project, the method that we are interested is bioremediation process and it occurs when we mix together the sand and drilling cuts with the surfactant solutions (GraphSolve12 or GraphBioSolve). GraphSolve12 and GraphBioSolve solutions will be provided by Platinum Sdn. Bhd. as this is a joint venture project between Platinum Sdn. Bhd. and Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. The surfactant solutions are the new solution synthesize by Platinum and the author will study the potential of GraphSolve12 and GraphBioSolve to remove oil from the drilling mud. The Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH) of the final drilling mud are compared while maintaining other parameters such as sand weight, drill cuttings weight and total amount of water and surfactant mixture. All 4 test has constant amount of water and surfactant mixture which is at 3,000 mL but different dosing percentage based on the surfactant amount such as 1ml, 10ml and 20ml for GraphSolve12 and 10mL GraphBioSolve.
