The energy industry predominantly uses oil-based drilling fluids to drill horizontal wells. Oil-based drilling fluids provide many benefits to the operator including better well bore stability, improved hydraulics, enhanced penetration rates and increased lubricity. As the well is drilled, the drill cuttings from the well bore contain drilling fluid; this is commonly known as drilling waste. The energy industry primarily manages drilling waste by either stabilizing it at the drilling site or at its final destination whether that is an industrial landfill or an onsite drilling reserve pit.
