Effect of drilling fluid additives on the Niger Delta environment: a case study of the Soku oil fields

Effect of drilling fluid additives on the Niger Delta environment: a case study of the Soku oil fields

Journal of Applied Science and Environmental Management 5(1): 57-61

The effect of drilling fluid additives on the Soku oil fields environment in Nigeria has been examined. Soil and reserve pits in various locations were assessed for some physicochemical characteristics and heavy metal content using standard methods for water and waste water analysis. Plant growth and other biomass were also assessed. The result showed that the levels of most physiochemical characteristics are generally within the limits of guidelines by regulatory authorities.
