Regulation of environmental protection in the use of drilling solution; waste management.

and environmental observations on oil and gas operations on the island. n

_________________________

The Environmental Protection Act of 2014;

The Petroleum Law Base in 1993; The Amendment Law, which complements some of the provisions of the Petroleum Law of 2000; The Amendment Law, adds some of the provisions of the Petroleum Law of 2008;

Base of Protocol 21 /2013/NĐ-CP March 4, 2013 of the Government regulates the function, mandate, jurisdiction and organizational structure of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment;

At the suggestion of the Attorney General of the Environment and the Secretary of State.

The Minister of Natural Resources and Environment issued a regulatory regulatory of environmental protection in the use of drilling solutions; waste management and environmental monitoring for oil and gas operations on the sea, including the oil industry.

What? 1. The tuning range and subject apply

1. This information regulates environmental protection in the use of drilling solutions; waste management and environmental observations on marine oil and gas operations.

2. This information applies to environmental management agencies, organizations, individuals whose activities are related to oil and gas operations within the territory, the economic zone of the economy, and the continental shelf of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

What? 2. Explain the word

In this message the words below are understood as follows:

1. Marine oil operations are search, exploration, oil and gas exploration; transportation, storage, petroleum processing, and other technical services directly related to these activities that are carried out at sea.

2. The oil and gas organization are individuals, organizations that are allowed to operate petroleum in the sea by law.

3. Oil and gas construction, mobile or fixed, and other structures used for oil and gas operations in the sea.

4. The drilling solution is a periodic solution used in the drilling process, oil and gas extraction to bring the drilling mud out of the wellbeing and balance pressure in wells, cooling, lubrication of the drill, transmitting hydraulic energy to the drill, I mean, it's a secret, seeping, and maintenance of the well.

5. Water-Based Drilling Fluid (WBDF) is a tolerance solution that uses water as a continuous phase and some other additive.

6. Non-Aqueous Drilling Fluid (NADF) is a drilling solution that uses a background solution as a continuous phase oil and some other additive.

7. Food litter is the leftover food from the daily process of living on the rigs, rigs mined and on board.

8. Environmental-sensitive areas include nature reserves, national parks, cultural history sites, world heritage sites, biosphere reserves, and scenic areas that have been ranked.

9. The Marpol Convention or Marpol 73/78 is the abbreviation of the International Convention on the Prevention of Marine Pollization.

What? 3. Use water drilling solution

1. The water-based drilling solution is used when drilling the well into the technical difficulties that the water-based drilling solution cannot be made, including one of the following cases:

a) drilling complex stratigeal segments, which are expected to arise as many risks as vulnerable stratikable straties, drilling in need of drilling, drilling loss, and drilling.

b) Try the incident in the drilling process;

c) Call the line.

2. The Environmental Directorate review, allows the use of water-based drilling solution for each specific case.

3. Before using a water-based drilling solution, the oil and gas organization suggested using a water-based drilling solution to the Office of the reception and the resulting action settlement of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the profile included:

a) The proposed text uses a water-based drilling solution, stating that it is required to use a water-based drilling solution, the method of use, processing methods, and pattern monitoring measures at the Appendix 1.

b) The first use of water-based drilling solutions in Vietnam: the record must have the original results of the Groundwater Drilling Solution analysis by the rules of the National Technical Regulation for drilling and drilling jams from the companies. The oil in the sea. Experiments were conducted at the Vietnam environmental conditions due to the laboratory being certified by the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment for environmental monitoring operation or quality recognition laboratory.

c) Other filings relate to the water-based drilling solution (if any);

d) In the time of 3 (three) days of work since the date of receiving the file, the Environmental Directorate has the responsibility to inform the organization, the individual to supplement, complete the case if the case is incomplete, valid by statute;

During the 10 (ten) days of work, since the date of receiving full, valid records, the Environment Directorate took the opinion of the Directorate of the Sea and the Vietnam Sea on the proposed dosages using the air drilling solution; reviewing the records, the opinions of the Directorate of the Sea and Sea. Vietnam and has an oil-based response to the use of water-based drilling solutions. The reply text content specifies either approval or non-approval.

4. The Directorate of the Environment, which posts and updates the list of water background drilling solutions that have been approved for use on the Electronic Information portal ' s electronic information portal.

5. The oil and gas organization using the right-to-right-compliant air-drilling solution was approved by the state regulator of the environment, sending out the process of using the water-based drilling solution to the Environmental Directorate, the slowest after 30 years. the day after the end of the use.

What? 4. Waste Management

1. Water extraction from oil and gas oil production is processed and discharged from compliance with the National Technical Regulation of wastewater extraction from oil and gas oil works.

2. Other wastewater sources arise from the oil and gas construction of the sea collected, processed and discharged under the regulation at Table 1.

Table 1

Requirements for collection, processing and disposal of waste water sources arise from the oil and gas construction on the sea.

Or the first commercial gas from the mine. Implementing a three-year-long periodic observational program from the time of the implementation of the first environmental observations program following the drilling of the mine;
