Extensive research sponsored by EPA (1987) and the oil and gas industry demonstrates the vast majority of E&P wastes are not hazardous. However, many E&P wastes require management to prevent adverse impacts to soil and water. Excessive alkalinity, salts and the dispersed nature of drilling waste solids (lack of physical structure) represent the principal limitations associated with disposal∕remediation of these wastes.
