Sequestering contaminated solids by injection into a subsurface formation using slurry injection is the safest, inexpensive, and permanent solution for managing these complex materials. Selecting a site for an injection well requires balancing the subsurface, surface, and logistical considerations and matching them to the waste type, equipment, and financial requirements for the project.

An in-depth analysis of the subsurface considerations is required to verify: 

  • the suitability of the injection formation to receive solids
  • the adequacy of the sealing formations which can contain the volumes of injection
  • quantification and minimization of risks within the relevant area of interest throughout the project’s life

ADVANTEK’s Slurry Injection Feasibility Studies are supported by our  global team of subject matter experts and by @SSURE®, our patented and proprietary suite of injection geomechanics software. These studies demonstrate the viability of solids injection projects through:

  • Identification of injection formation(s)
  • Verification of seal containment
  • Formation capacity calculation
  • Risk identification and remediation
  • Site design
  • Operational design  
  • Designing guidelines for operation
  • Full support of personnel and equipment if needed

ADVANTEK and our principals have been instrumental in inventing and promulgating slurry injection across the world over the past 35 years. We have shared our expertise through over a hundred technical papers
