McDonough Marine Service offers U.S. Coast Guard designed and approved “Liquid Mud Barges” that specialize in the transportation of Grade "E" and Grade "D" nonhazardous oilfield drilling fluids, as well as other non-hazardous fluids. These barges are equipped with two deck-level bin tanks that provide a total of four separate compartments. Containing on-board piping and pumping systems, these barges are capable of both the circulation and discharge of fluids at any remote facility. While inland oil well drilling sites are the primary operational service location for these barges, land based storage facilities also benefit from the storage and transportation aspects they provide.

Classification of Oils
