OLI South Africa

OLI is the world’s top-selling supplier of industrial vibration technology products.

The OLI product is distributed in Africa by its subsidiary in Gauteng, South Africa.

The range of products and services under the OLI umbrella is wide and includes many technology-based services that are vital for successful field operations. One such field is upstream oil and gas.

Petroleum is among the world’s most important natural resources. The production of petroleum involves the generation of drilling waste which forms a major source of pollution in the oil-producing environment. 

The solids control system forms the first waste management practice in any drilling operation. 

It removes drill cuttings from the drilling mud at the surface just before the mud re-enters the mud-pit for recirculation. Apart from drill cuttings, the solids control equipment also removes some gases and other contaminants in the mud before they are re-circulated.

The early removal of these solids avoids accumulation and clogging of the system. The components of the solids control system will depend upon the types of drilling fluid used, the formations being drilled, the available equipment on the rig, and the specific requirements of the disposal option. Basically, standard solid control equipment will comprise of shale shakers, degassers, desanders and desilters.

Mud passes over a shale shaker, which is basically a vibrating screen. This removes the larger particles, while allowing the residue to pass into settling tanks.

The finer particles are further removed in the desanders and desilters. If the mud contains gas from the formation, it will be passed through a degasser which separates the gas from liquid mud.

OLI explosion-proof electric vibrating motors have been designed according to the latest international standards and have all the required certifications for the upstream oil and gas sector.

“When you need it, where you need it” – the mission statement that gives OLI the edge over its competitors.
