ARKSTAR VESSELS

Arkstar Energy

Mud Processing Barge to facilitate on-site production of mud for drilling operations, while serving as an excellent cargo carrying vessel. 

Arkstar Energy can handle 6000 bbls of mud split into 12 equal deck tanks, each equipped with a pair of agitators to maximize efficiencies. Tanks are amply provided on the barge to carry a wide variety of cargo besides mud, such as 6242 bbls of base oil and 4146 bbls of drill water to supply offshore installations. There is a total of 26 void tanks with possibility for future conversion to carry other cargo. The mud processing tanks on board will be able to provide great cost savings for our clients, while the flexibility on cargo carrying capacity serve as the key strength of Arkstar Energy.
