That's correct in the US, but it's more commonly known as the cuttings pit to distinguish it from the reserve pit in the mud tanks (containing prepared drilling fluid that is ready, but kept separate from the circulating system until used.)
The cuttings /reserve pit is normally split in two (although AME do not appear to be doing this in Turkey), with a small notch cut in the top of the barrier separating them. This allows the liquid to flow across while keeping the cuttings in the main pit. This makes it easier to recover the liquid portion for cleaning and reuse, or separate disposal from the cuttings.
Bentonite is indeed used as you say, but it is becoming more rare that the authorities allow this and don't mandate the use of a membrane. They always do if OBM is being used and the Operator may do this anyway, if a Bentonite mud isn't being used in the top hole sections.
In many areas, further treatment is now being mandated, essentially to dry the cuttings even further to minimise their volume. Sometimes this may also involve incineration and crushing to remove the last of the mud.
The norm is indeed to let the main pit dry out and then be buried under the top soil that was removed and stored during site construction.
Are you G&G?
That's good news Funky.
Hoping the best for you.
It's only ever about profit, never the chatter.
In my experience, the ‘hole in the ground’ is commonly known as the ‘reserve pit’.
This is simply a hole in the ground into which spent drilling mud and cuttings are dumped, rather than having to truck it to an approved landfill - of which there are few in Eastern Anatolia! The bentonite in the mud effectively seals the bottom of the pit and prevents it leaking, in the same way bentonite is used to seal leaking ponds in UK.
When all the cuttings and mud solids precipitate out to the bottom a pond of water remains as an emergency water supply for the rig. Abandoned mud pits eventually dry out and excavated soil is simply back filled for safety reasons.
Sometimes the reserve pit area is ‘bio-remediated’ which is a fancy word meaning the residual cuttings/mud are ploughed into the ground with grass seed.
I’m not ramping SKWizz I top sliced at .35.....
Beginning of April
currently got 12.5 million that cost me nothing
Looking forward to a top up very soon when my target is hit. Good Luck
The method of using a pit dug in the ground for the mud system hasn't been used anywhere for many decades.
The AME has the following mud system;
Mud Pits:Total Tank Capacity: 1100bbl, Agitators: 4x 7,5kW + 5x 11kW, Hopper Centrifuge: 3x 75kW 6”x8”x14” (2 on hopper pit, 1 on suction pit), 40bbl Slug Tank, 1200bbl water containing pits
Link to the AME-101 Rig Specs the above is taken from.
"Blimey you still here bashing away SKwizz
Have you bought in yet ?
Soon be time to reinvest in this beauty IMHO"
You still here ramping away, Funky?
I was in this again four times in April.
Last time was April 16th.
I sold again each time for more profits.
You sold and realised an actual profit from UKOG yet?
It is a trader.
Penguin, except Tony isn't a naysayer is he.....not a member of the PENGUIN club is he.....nice jumbly try though.....as usual
Rubbish if you know the difference between cement and concrete you would not call a concrete waggon a cement waggon
Your typical of the know alls on here like skwizzy abbot
Then to say it mixes cement so that's good enough shows a complete lack of life experiences
Not sure what Portland as to do with it unless you are referring to Portland cement
A concrete waggon for your understanding also does not mix concrete unless a batching type
Contrite is batched in the depot and the waggon only turns a drum to keep it from setting due to the vibration of travelling and the heat given off during setting
Keep going I can spout all day on this crap
Back to your tinker toys
Blimey you still here bashing away SKwizz
Have you bought in yet ?
Soon be time to reinvest in this beauty IMHO
Monday was Mayday Bank Holiday so 'and took the first price Monday' can't be true for starters, and the closing price yesterday can be seen above these posts (0.25p from a UT trade) although the spread was 0.24 - 0.25p and mid price was 0.245. Neither was 0.256p. So your 'from' SP is dubious and your 'to' price is wrong.
Ozzy must have been referring to your post as 'now quoting in corbynistic standards......selected jumbled statistics'.
btw Nobody is 'ganging up' on you, or is worried about your attempts at ramping. If you post something that's dubious expect it to be questioned.
If that’s what they intend using as a mud pit it’s shocking, mud pit
1. n. [Drilling Fluids]
A large tank that holds drilling fluid on the rig or at a mud-mixing plant. For land rigs, most mud pits are rectangular steel construction, with partitions that hold about 200 barrels each. They are set in series for the active mud system. On most offshore rigs, pits are constructed into the drilling vessel and are larger, holding up to 1000 barrels. Circular pits are used at mixing plants and on some drilling rigs to improve mixing efficiency and reduce dead spots that allow settling. Earthen mud pits were the earliest type of mud pit, but environmental protection concern has led to less frequent use of open pits in the ground. Today, earthen pits are used only to store used or waste mud and cuttings prior to disposal and remediation of the site of the pit.

If you are interested in time travel I will meet you at the Blackhorse last Thursday"
Ahh so you'll likely be more interested in what happened on Friday, rather than days previously.
In which case, that would be a 2.34% loss.
these are probably the only decent pictures of a layout for AME that I could find.
In reply to penguins.
I got the 1 week graph up and took the first price Monday and the closing price the same week ...
obviously you could pick Friday , mid day or close
You are obviously very worried by my posts and my credibility and have to attack on mass.
As for the mud pits mentioned by another poster I don’t think they use steel tanks in Turkey. They appear to line a hole in the ground... as per AME drilling rig pics I linked to recently.
Sorry for the delay in response, I have a life...
( so busy I nearly forgot to get my jab done today.)
That is not a mud pit - a mud pit is a steel tank which the drilling fluid, aka 'mud', is prepared in and stored for use. Several of them are connected up in sequence to make a functioning circulating system for the mud system.
It's either a pit for water storage or for the rock cuttings when they are separated out of the mud returning from the well.
In any case, it is certainly not complete. The bottom needs to be smoothed so that an impermeable membrane can be laid and sealed off so that the ground beneath it is not contaminated.
Note that, in the UK, it is a requirement that the entire site be underlaid with an impermeable membrane - not a requirement in most other jurisdictions.
The Conductor isn't ready for cementing either. For a start, it needs to be set absolutely vertically, which that one clearly isn't. Then the bottom of the conductor needs to be grouted in place and then the rest of the cellar prepped for cementing.
Penguins post in this thread at 17:59 yesterday shows the final stages of cellar preparation. Note that the steel reinforcing along with proper concrete (not just grout) is needed to prepare the cellar to take the loads exerted on it by the Rig.
This pad is extended out for the rig to actually sit on (the depth, size and shape of this pad depends on the Rig and the ground force loads it is calculated to exert during drilling). Again, steel reinforcing is laid.
All that means that, once the cellar and pad have been laid, it usually takes 10 - 14 days for the concrete to cure enough to allow the Rig to be installed.
The quality of the naysayers nonsense is getting very poor.....now quoting in corbynistic standards......selected jumbled statistics......the drill bit will do the talking......very soon

I was factually correcting a post that was wrong.
Decimal point in the wrong place, should be 3.75% and nothing.
When will these posters stop making stuff up.
'Well .21 to .256 is a 21.9% gain in a week'
It would be
But whatever closing price you take for Friday 30 April, a week ago, the rise was anywhere between 0.375% and nothing.
Mid price last Friday was 0.2425p, yesterday 0.245p
Uncrossed Trades (UT) and all trades after closing Friday 30 April 0.25p, yesterday 0.25p.
2 weeks ago mid price 0.25p or 0.251p (UT)
3 weeks ago mid price 0.295p or 0.3p (UT)
4 weeks ago mid price 0.2425p or 0.255p (UT)
If I go back 5 weeks before the P&D to Thursday April 1st the mid price was 0.14p and UT was 0.135
I agree to your description of Trollhunter - at last someone has called him/her out - everyone else is referring to his description of a 'cement truck'.
'Child, there is nothing called a cement truck'
'The picture shows the cement truck in the background....'
I'm not calling it anything. I just copied and pasted. And yes I do know the difference between concrete and cement having a family background in "Portland". If you can't figure out it is just a big cement mixer calling it a cement truck sounds good to me as it obviously does to others.
Put your toys back in the pram and grow up. Digger/excavator who cares. Horses for courses.
If you and the other baby can't recognise what the hydraulics are for it is not my problem.
Stockraiser, she 's not called Swizzy Abbott for nothing......more likely to be a 2 bottles empty sort.....and so early in the day......makes sense of the nonsense......anyway back to the real world......day by day progressing nicely
Child there is nothing called a cement truck
You may have a waggon carrying bulk cement or a trailer pulled by a unit full of pallets of bags of cement
The picture you are showing is a concrete waggon ie mixer
Its complicated by the fact that may be a self metering waggon carrying sand and cement but generally not
Cement will not be enough to build a cellar or anything else
You'll get it if you understood it
Playing with your diggers in the sand today
But you're probably a 'glass always empty' kinda guy which is why you are so very selectively pessimistic.
So we all know not to trust your calculations in the future .....
"0.12 to 0.4 was a 60% gain in a week" - wrong its a 234% gain in a week.
"That is more than a 4000% loss" - wrong it's approx a 97.68% loss - it's impossible to have more than a 100% loss.
Not sure how you come to the figures you post?
"Well .21 to .256 is a 21.9% gain in a week"
Well 0.40 to 0.256 is a 56% loss in a month.
0.12 to 0.4 was a 60% gain in a week.
But the really impressive figure you're missing is 11p to 0.256.
That is more than a 4000% loss.
But you're probably a 'glass half full' kinda guy which is why you are so selectively optimistic.
