GN Solids Control has rich experience in making compact mud recycling system that used in no-dig drilling project. GN has standard model of compact mud system for option, for clients’ special requirements, GN is able to provide customized solution. This week, GN completed the fabrication of one set 350GPM mud recycling system for a UAE client. The 350GPM mud recycling system in this order is GN standard self-contained unit with mud recycling, storage and mixing function. The equipment configuration is as below:
1. Shaker and mud cleaner composition unit- this unit is the main mud recycling equipment. The shaker equipped in this unit is a double deck model, the under layer is used as the first stage mud recycling equipment for coarse solids separation. GN composite frame shaker screen could effectively remove the solid particles; this process could reduce the load for the cyclone unit. The drilling mud passing through the under layer screen will immediately transferred by a centrifugal pump unit to the 4 inch cyclone for fine solids separation. The drilling mud after treated by the cyclone, solids with size larger than around 20 microns would be removed. Discharged slurry will be further dried by the upper layer screen for more fluids recovery.
Couple months before, GN delivered 3 units of poor boy degasser to GNPC. Today GN finished another order of poor boy degasser from a France Client. GN’s poor boy degasser is manufactured as per API and ISO standard for underbalanced condition drilling to prevent dramatic pressure surges. For most of the deep drilling rig, a poor boy degasser is indispensable equipment for safety operation consideration. On oil drilling site, the poor boy degasser is always located beside the mud recycling system. In normal condition, the dirty mud back from well will go directly to the drilling mud shale shaker for solids separation. Under this condition, the poor boy degasser will not be applied. In case gas layer was intruded, a blowout might happen. This is the when the poor boy degasser will be used.
GN’s poor boy degasser is with simple structure for gas cut mud hitting on the baffle plates for dispersion, and then the gas separated The degasser unit could be designed to fix on a skid, thus the poor boy could be folded and easily moved on site. The chock manifold can also be installed on the skid. Before the drilling mud getting into the poor boy degasser, the chock manifold will reduce the pressure of the mud firstly.Mostly, the poor boy degasser will be connected with an ignition device. The flammable and poisonous gas discharged from the poor boy degasser will be guided to the ignition device for burning out. Safety should be give the priority forever in any jobsite. GN Solids Control is able to provide a one stop solution for all solids control equipment request, as well as the complete mud recycling system. If any request aroused, please feel free to contact with GN.
Last week, GN finished the order from CNPC on manufacturing vertical cuttings dryer and decanter centrifuges. This week, another order from CNPC on one set drilling cuttings solidification unit has been completed the delivery inspection, soon later, it will be shipped to CNPC’s site for application.Solidification unit is a kind of equipment used for final treatment of drilling cuttings. With the strict environmental protection regulations issued, most of the rig site has to further treat the drilling cuttings to reduce the waste discharge and recover drilling fluids as much as possible. The further treated drilling cuttings, due to containing of chemicals, cannot be discharged directly.
The solidification unit is an ideal equipment for final disposal of the water based drilling cuttings.
The closed loop system for treating the drilling waste is now more and more popular and requested by almost all the drilling plant and oil products producers. This week, GN completed the delivery inspection for some drilling waste management equipment including 2 vertical cuttings dryers and 4 decanter centrifuges. These equipment would be used by CNPC for their drilling waste treatment. Vertical cuttings dryer and decanter centrifuge are 2 of the main equipment in drilling waste management system. In the same system, cuttings dryer and centrifuge are installed in the same line but one after another in working procedure.
GN just finished the fabrication of one batch of solids control equipment for a drilling company from Uzbekistan. The ordered equipment mainly includes shale shaker and vacuum degasser. Some drilling companies give the mud recycling service to a third party. However, to reduce the drilling cost, some drilling company will do the mud cleaning by themselves.
Shale shakeris the first stage solids control equipment; the performance of the shale shaker will greatly affect the performance of the complete mud system. The more coarse solids removed at the shale shaker stage, the better the mud system will perform. GN shale shaker has following advantages that ensure the onsite stable performance.
