About this webinar:

Disposal of spent oil based drilling mud, which is typically 50% by weight oil, is becoming more difficult as ocean dumping for offshore platforms and terrestrial land farming have fallen out of favor.

This Webcast covers the two thermal methods of treatment, indirect fired thermal desorption, and thermo-mechanical desorption. Both methods allow cooling and condensation of the vaporized diesel fuel contained in the drilling mud, and recovery of that fuel value.

Support & Troubleshooting

What support is available for users on Macintosh and Unix/Linux-Based operating systems?

This presentation incorporates advanced multimedia features that allow elements such as slides, polling questions, surveys, and application demonstrations to be dynamically sent to the audience synchronized with the presentation. Mac and Linux audiences may view the presentation using a supported Firefox Web browser and Adobe Flash player. Please note that some presentations may not feature a Flash option.

Why can't I hear audio?

If you have internal speakers, make sure they aren't muted.

If you have external speakers, make sure they are powered on and aren't muted.

If using a Notebook or Laptop computer, use external speakers or earphones.

Make sure you did not lose Internet connectivity.

Make sure you have the media player installed that you are attempting to use and the plugin is correctly installed within the browser.

If you are using Windows Media Player and the player simply stops and/or gives you a generic "error" message, you may be missing an audio codec required to decode the presentation audio. Click here for the Microsoft Codec Installation Package.

Alternatively, you can download the latest player here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/

If you are using Adobe Flash Player and are having connection issues please refer to the section labeled 
 

What is a pop-up blocker and how do I disable it?

Pop-up blockers are software programs that stop unsolicited "pop-up" browser windows from launching automatically. These windows often feature advertisements that can be an annoyance to users trying to browse the Internet, however some features of the Webcast may make use of pop-up windows to deliver key functionality. Depending on the software progam you have installed you may be able to add the Web site URL to a list of permissible Web sites where pop-up windows are allowed.

It is common to have one or more pop-up blockers that you may be unaware of. Most pop-up blockers reside either in the system tray (lower right hand corner of your screen by the clock) or as a toolbar in Internet Explorer (at the top of your browser, go to "View" and then "Toolbars"). These can be disabled in their options or preferences menus. (Common toolbars such as Google and Yahoo Companion have built in pop up blockers).

Also, if you are unaware of any other pop-up blockers that are running on your computer, you may want to see if you have personal firewall software running, such as Norton's Internet Security or ZoneAlarm. If you have either of these, they will also block pop-up windows.

Where can I download the latest streaming media players?

Why do I get a "connection failed" or "connection blocked" message when I try to view Adobe Flash streams?

In addition to having a properly installed Adobe Flash Player your pc must permit rtmp (over port 1935) and / or rtmpt (over port 80) live streaming protocols. Please contact your local IT Administrator if you are unsure of your settings. IT Admins can click here to review additional information on configuring proxy servers to permit live Flash streaming.
