Drilling Waste Volume Estimation Basic Concept: "This article provides basic concept of drilling waste volume estimation. These calculation methods can be utilized to compare and optimize the solid control equipment as well. Before I will go into the detailed formulas, I need to have a little bit more background regarding the drilling waste. When we talk about drilling waste, not only is the cuttings but it includes waste of drilling mud, cement, spacer, etc. There are several factor affecting the drilling waste volume such as hole size, solid control efficiency, formations drilled, the amount of drilling mud retained on the cuttings, the ability of drilling mud to sustain in the system, etc."
