Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation to host seminar on drilling mud

Drilling for oil and gas are key economic drivers in the southern Great Plains, but there is a challenge in deciding how to handle drilling fluid and other by-products of the process.

Drilling fluid (mud) is a by-product of oil and gas drilling. The drilling process produces barrels of the fluid that must be handled in a safe and environmentally friendly manner. One method is to apply it on agricultural land. There are many factors a landowner should consider when making the decision about whether or not to allow drilling mud application to his/her land.

The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a special seminar entitled “Application of Drilling Mud to Agricultural Land” from 6:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m., May 23, at the Ardmore (Okla.) Convention Center to educate landowners on the benefits and consequences of applying drilling mud to their land.

This seminar will provide information that will allow landowners to decide if they want to allow drilling mud to be applied to their agricultural land; and, if so, how to structure a contract to ensure their interests are protected.

“This is an excellent opportunity for landowners to hear speakers from the scientific, regulatory and legal fields on the issue of applying drilling mud to agricultural land,” said Eddie Funderburg, Ph.D., senior soils and crops consultant. “Opportunities to hear all three components in one meeting are rare, and the information presented will help landowners decide what is right for their operation.”

Speakers will include:

Sam Feagley, Ph.D., soil chemist, Texas A&M University, Drilling Mud Compositions; Potential Benefits and Hazards of Applying Drilling Mud Onto Agricultural Land;

Mike Moore, hydrologist, Oklahoma Corporation Commission, Allowable Application Methods and Rates; Regulations Concerning Eligible Lands; and

Trae Gray, attorney, Legal Considerations for the Landowner.

This seminar is offered at no charge, but preregistration is requested. For more information or to register, visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Jackie Kelley at 580-224-6360.
