John A. Veil Argonne National Laboratory Washington, D. C. Salt caverns show promise for the disposal of nonhazardous oil field wastes, and there are no apparent regulatory barriers to this application. Solution-mined salt caverns have been used for many years for storing hydrocarbon products. Argonne National Laboratory has reviewed the legality, technical suitability, and feasibility of disposing of nonhazardous oil and gas exploration and production wastes in salt caverns.
Cost and availability of offsite commercial oil field waste disposal vary considerably across the U. S. and substantially depend on such factors as the disposal method, the state in which the disposal company is located, and the degree of competition in the area. U. S oil and gas exploration and production generate millions of barrels of nonhazardous oil field wastes annually.
