A method for improving an inwards stability of an existing levee including a landslide slope (28) and a landside berm (32). The method comprises placing columns (60) through the landside berm into one or more soft soil layers (40) with corresponding soil volumetric weights (s), wherein the columns have a column volumetric weight (c) that is at least 10% larger than the soil volumetric weights, and wherein the columns comprise a mineral aggregate and an impermeable filler.

A gas-extraction device (52) for extracting at least one gas contained in a drilling mud, the device comprising an enclosure (62), an equipment (64) for supplying the drilling mud to the enclosure (62), and an equipment (70) for introducing a carrier gas into the enclosure (62). The device further comprises a flow regulator (104) able to regulate the flow rate of a gas flow containing at least carrier gas, and a pressure controller for locally setting a pressure distinct from the pressure of the enclosure (62). The flow regulator (104) is interposed between the pressure controller and the enclosure (62) and the pressure controller is configured so that the one of the pressure controller and enclosure (62) which is situated upstream from the flow regulator (104) has a higher pressure than the one situated downstream.

The disclosure relates to a method for determining the content of at least one gas compound contained in a drilling fluid having a set of physical properties, the method comprising:- extracting out of a sample of the drilling fluid a gas fraction of the or each gas compound;- measuring a representative information (y(i)) of the or each gas fraction of each gas compound;- obtaining, for the or each gas compound a correcting factor (
) relating the measured informatlon (y(i)) for the gas fraction of each compound to the content of said compound in the drilling fluid;wherein the estimated correcting factor (
) used for the or each gas compound is obtained on the basis of a set of previous correcting factors (p_(0)(i)), previously obtained from calibration of reference drilling fluids, each of the reference drilling fluids having at least one physical property substantially identical to the corresponding physical property of the extracted drilling fluid.

The present disclosure concerns a method for detecting gain or loss of drilling fluid in a drilling installation, said drilling installation comprising a drilling pipe, drilling fluid pits and a hydraulic connection between the pits and the drilling pipe. Said method comprises:- providing (116, 118), during a first period, a set of measurement values (va_(i,m) ; vc_(j,m)) representative of a volume of drilling fluid in each of the pits belonging to a predetermined group (112, 113) ; then- based on volume measurement values, identifying (148) volume variations occurring during the first period for the pits of the predetermined group, each volume variation of a pit being associated with a volume variation period ;- calculating (162), for each measuring time (t_(m)), a corrected cumulated volume of drilling fluid (V_(m)) for the pits of the predetermined group, based on the identified volume variation occurring in at least a sub-group (113) of the predetermined group, and- estimating (163) a first value (A_(m)) for a gain or loss of drilling fluid at a measuring time (t_(m)) by comparing the corrected cumulated volume (V_(m)) with an expected value (V_(0)).
