The TotalEnergies Ecosolutions advantage
Our EDC drilling fluids were compared to other available reference products intended for the same use, mainly diesel cuts and clean oil drilling fluids. Clean oils have lower aromatic content and toxicity markers than diesel cuts but are still higher than EDC products. The comparison showed that the ultra-low aromatic content and the low level of toxicity markers of EDC drilling fluids significantly reduce ecosystem and health impacts. * Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, Xylene, BTEX and BaP eq.
The Environmental Performance
Ecotoxicological risks reduced by:
- 18,000 compared to diesel cuts
- 100 compared to clean oils.
Toxicity markers concentration decrease by:
- 46,000 compared to diesel cuts
- 54 compared to clean oils
Ecotoxicological and toxicological assessments were performed, for the first one comparing the environmental impacts related both to aromatic content and the type of aromatic compound found and for the latter by evaluating the level of toxicity markers measured in the three types of products: EDC, diesel cuts and clean oils.
