Many China drilling contractor or oil service company have business in Africa, they bring the high technology there, help the economy development of the local market, and improve the lift of local people.
Recently, one China government company CNPC have get some project in Africa, and give purchase order to buy drilling waste management package from GN Solids Control. The package including below items:
1) Mud tanks with High G drying shaker
GN High G drying shaker is very popular to treat the water based mud drilling cuttings discharged from shale shaker. The patent 4 panel shaker is replacement for Swaco Mongoose.
If for oil based mud, vertical cuttings dryer will give much better working performance. However, the purchase cost and maintenance cost of Vertical cuttings dryer will be much higher than High G drying shaker. The client can make decision based on the Mud condition, budget and the special requirement from the owner.
2) Mud tanks with decanter centrifuge & flocculent unit
The WBM drilling cuttings, after treatment of High G drying shaker, the separated liquid should be transfer to decanter centrifuge for 2nd step treatment. GN decanter centrifuge have different model for option. The most popular model is 14inch bowl centrifuge GNLW363.
This decanter centrifuge is equivalent to Derrick DE1000/ Swaco 518. And we have fixed speed type and variable speed type for option.
If ultra fine solids in liquid cannot be separated by centrifuge, flocculent unit is required to coagulate the ultra fine solids to big particles, then separated by centrifuge.
3) Auxiliary equipment, including screw conveyor, transfer pumps, feeding pumps, is included for the package.
Except above part, GN can offer different model shaker screens to replace the expensive screens from original seller. The screens including:
- GN replacement screen for Derrick FLC500 shaker, Derrick FLC2000 shaker;
- GN replacement screen for Swaco Mongoose shaker
- GN replacement screen for NOV brandt king cobra shaker /VSM shaker
Even the oil drilling market is very down, we still can receive some purchase orders from old clients. Recently, we finish production for waste management system, and is exporting to Uganda, Africa now. China Oilfield Services Limited (COSL) bought the equipment and doing drilling operations there. The project including below items:
1) High G dryer with collection tank beneath.
The High G dryer is GN 4 panel shale shaker with up to 8G vibration motor, and 4pcs composite material shaker screen. The high G force and longer deck can make the solids discharge much dryer, which is easier for transportation. The clean mud will drop down to the beneath catch tank.
2) High speed decanter centrifuge with mud catch tank
The decanter centrifuge is GN 14inch high speed centrifuge, which is the most popular model for oil & gas drilling. The 14inch centrifuge is equivalent to Swaco 518 centrifuge or Derrick DE1000 centrifuge. Many client used Swaco/Derrick centrifuge before, and shift to GN after knowing GN strength and high quality of GN centrifuge.
The high speed centrifuge can be set to 3200RPM, which can separate 2-5microns fine solids. The clean drilling mud drop down to the catch tank below. Then, the screw pump will transfer the clean mud back to drilling active tanks for reuse.
Above equipment system is more proper for water based mud treatment. For oil based mud cuttings treatment, Vertical cuttings dryer will give much better performance. GN vertical cuttings dryer have been put into market for over 3 years. The separation point is mainly depends on the screen basket, 0.25mm/0.35mm/0.5mm opening for options.

As for delivery, GN stock centrifuge can give very fast delivery.
3) GN vertical cuttings dryer in stock
As the much lower oil price, the drilling waste management market should be pretty cold for long time. Anyway, we will give good service when have requirement from clients.
Russia oil drilling market prefers to buy more and more solids control equipment from China as the strained relationship between Russia and US. Since 2014, The sales amount to Russia have a big percentage for our exporting business.
GN Mud cleaner is combination of shale shaker, desander cones and desilter cones. Three units in one make the footprint much smaller, save lots of space for the surface of mud tank system.
GN have different type shale shaker, with 2 panel, 3 panel or 4 panel. Thus, the mud cleaner is also different which can be 2 panel, 3 panel or 4 panel deck shaker.
The mud cleaner treating capacity also decided by the desander cones qty or desilter cones qty, which can be 200gpm, 500gpm, 800gpm,1000gpm or 1500gpm. We can control the treating capacity by the quantity of desander or desilter.

As the crude oil price is lower, many drilling company stop drilling operation and are busy with oily sludge. They want to treat the oily sludge, recover valuable oil, and reduce the impact on the environment. Government in every country also has related regulations on environmental protection.
After about half year communication with different oily sludge client, we promote oily sludge treatment system with shaker, centrifuge, chemical dosing system, and O/W separator. The system includes 4 parts.
Part 1: Mixing tank with shaker and agitators
The shaker on the tank is long deck shale shaker with hot line inlet water/steam, which can help to improve the separation performance of shaker screen. We also advise coarse mesh screen for longer working life, and to avoid sludge stick on the screen.
After separation of shaker, the liquid go down to the mixing tank, the agitator will suspending it. Meanwhile, the chemical will coming from chemical dosing system. Here, the oily sludge will be diluted and have better separation.
Part 2: Chemical dosing system
The chemical dosing system including PAM three tank dosing system, acid tank etc.
Part 3: Centrifuge on telescopic skid
After the mixing tank, the oily sludge will be transfer to centrifuge system. High speed centrifuge can separate the fine solids, discharge down to skips, and the clean liquid go to slant plate clarifier.
We recommend most popular centrifuge model GNLW363 series. The 14inch centrifuge is equivalent to Swaco 518 centrifuge or Derrick DE1000 centrifuges. We have lots of client shift from Swaco/Derrick to GN for centrifuge requirements.
Big bowl big capacity centrifuge is also available, GNLW553 centrifuge is 22inch centrifuge with big volume.
Part 4: slant plate clarifier and O/W separator
Via slant plate clarifier, the solids will be removed. Then, the liquid go to O/W separator, here the liquid will be separated into oil and water. Oil pump to oil tank; water pump to water tank.
If you are in need of solids control equipment, pls contact us freely.
GN can offer various type shaker screens for different model shale shakers. Recently, we have one client from Middle East with 5 land rigs under drilling. He visited our company at the end of last year, and he knows GN very well. At the first, the client need equipment for oily sludge treatment, they failed to win the tender. Next time they need some sets of decanter centrifuges & high G drying shakers, but they are busy with big tender for chemical supply and they lose the centrifuge tender again. We really feel sorry to hear that.
After about half years past, the client needs to buy some screens sample for their rigs working in Oman. And we want to catch this opportunity and start to offer products to them. The client need 20pcs replacement shaker screen for Brandt VENOM shaker (API 70) and 20pcs replacement shaker screen for Brandt VENOM shaker (API 80). We can offer both composite material frame screen and carbon steel frame screen. In fact, the carbon steel frame screen is not feedback good in some mud condition, even the price of composite material is higher, we recommend client the composite material screen with much better and reliable working performance.
Except for Venom shaker, GN can also offer other different models of replacement shaker screen. For example:
1) Replacement screen for Derrick FLC 2000 shale shakers, pyramid screen and flat screen.
2) Replacement screen for Derrick FLC 500 shale shakers, pyramid screen and flat screen.
3) Replacement screen for Swaco Mongoose, omposite material screen or Carbon steel frame screen, different price, different lifetime and different working performance. We recommend composite as better choice
4) Replacement screen for Brandt king cobra/ Brandt Venom, composite material screen or Carbon steel frame screen, different price, different lifetime and different working performance. We recommend composite as better choice
5) Except for above screens, GN can offer replacement screen for Scomi shakers, FSI shale shakers
GN decanter centrifuge with tungsten alloy tiles screw conveyor can have a much longer lifetime with good working performance. The Ex-proof control panel with positive pressurized air can keep inside lower temperature, and keep it clean without dust and keep it dry; all the features make the centrifuge & VFD control panel good performance and less maintenance.
One client from Africa, they bought 2 batches decanter centrifuge from us in past 3 years. The client is local land rig drilling contractor with 7 land rigs. They use the centrifuge for solids control, each rig need two sets centrifuge, the client have their own centrifuge from us, and they also rent some centrifuges locally.
Recently, we have got news from the clients that they are doing some maintenance for the VFD control panel and are faced with some challenges.
- Challenge 1: the centrifuge cannot separate anything
- Challenge 2: the PLC control panel don’t display correct rotation speed value as reset
- Challenge 3: The centrifuge motor don’t rotate in correct direction
After several times discussion by email and by phones, we are clear that all the disorder is because of the electrical components in the VFD control panel which have been replaced by client is not working in correct mode. After we give instruction on how to adjust the Omren module components in the Control box, the centrifuge can work in correct mode as before.
The centrifuge motor rotation direction is also very important to the centrifuge performance. If the rotation direction is not correct, it will not remove solids and will not work normally. We have direction arrow in red stick on the motor end, it is much necessary for client to check the rotation direction before test the centrifuge.
Except for centrifuge, GN Solids Control also provide all line of solids control equipment, like shale shaker, mud cleaner, mud agitator, mud gun, shear pump, screw pump, slurry pump, mud tanks etc.
For drilling waste management, the products line including: vertical cuttings dryer, thermal desorption unit, fixation unit, screw conveyor etc.
