Most of client will choose skid mounted mud system, to put the mud system on the truck for transportation from site to site. Some client will prefer to trailer mounted mud system with single axle or double axles. The trailer mounted mud system allow client to move it by truck head, to hook the mud system and pull it from site to site, which will be much convenient from the close project. Recently, we have one client from North Africa. The client need mud system for water well drilling and we already discuss the inquiry for about one year, finally the client give us order for one set 500gpm trailer mounted mud system. We source the trailer from trailer company, and weld the tank upside by ourselves, and then match the proper model shale shaker, mud cleaner, pumps, hopper etc. to complete the mud system.

As sales for Africa region, we follow the Africa clients who have potential requirement for solids control equipment, mud system, shaker screen, or other related spare parts. One Africa Drilling Company send inquiry to us from early of 2016. From then, we continuously follow the client, to offer quotation, mud system drawing, answers for many questions. After about one year communication, we finally got the purchase order. It is one 500gpm trailer mounted mud system with shaker; mud cleaner and other necessary solids control parts.

500gpm mud system

Details of the system configuration as below:

1) GNZS703 shale shaker, with composite material shaker screen to ensure the longer working time and better separation performance.  The shaker is equipped with Italy OLI brand motor, much reliable than other brand. The shaker screen is locked by wedge, which is easy to install and dismounting, save time when replace the shaker screen.

2) GNZJ703 Mud Cleaner. The mud cleaner is combination of three unit, including down deck shale shaker, desander and desilter assembly. The down deck shaker is same as GNZS703 shale shaker, but with higher API size screen (API 120, API 140 etc.).  The desander and desilter are made of PU material, much anti-corrosive material. The raw material and design are almost same, just the size is different. The desander is 10inch and desilter is 4inch.

3) Other necessary solids control equipment including mud agitator, mud gun, centrifugal pump etc. The mud agitator is used to suspend the heavy solids in mud to avoid settlement, and the mud gun can be used to flush the tank when finish work. The centrifugal pump is used to suck mud and feed to desander cones and desilter cones.  The two sets centrifugal pump will consume most power in the system.

4) All above mud equipment will be installing on trailer mounted mud tank. The mud tank is building and welding on the lower trailer chassis, easy for short distance movement.

If you are in need of any trailer mounted mud tank system, pls contact GN freely.

Shale shaker: we recommend GNZS594 shale shaker for better working performance, longer shaker deck and composite material screen with long lifetime.  GN composite material screen is replacement for Swaco Mongoose

Mud cleaner: we recommend mud cleaner with 2ea desander cyclones and 12ea desilter cyclones. The deck shaker is same as GNZS594 shaker, thus same type shaker screen is required, no need backup different type screens.

Centrifugal pump is equipped to feeding the mud cleaner cyclones.

The third compartment in mud tank is clean mud after treatment; mud agitator is equipped to suspending the mud.

2) Decanter centrifuge tank

The second tank, centrifuge tank is equipped with 1ea middle speed centrifuge, jet mud hopper and mixing pump.

The centrifuge GNLW452 middle speed centrifuge is used to remove the barite in the mud or other big solids particles.

The mud hopper and mixing pump is used to mixing chemicals into the drilling mud, to adjust the mud weight and mud viscosity.

Mud tank: 1 set, tank size 11000 X 2100 X 2150mm. The mud tank is oilfield skid mounted tank, the most popular tank type for oil drilling.

3) Mud storage tanks

The mud cleaning system produced by GN solids control is widely used for horizontal directional drilling , water welling drilling ,coal bed methane, geothermal hole and mining diamond core drilling , it is used to separate the drill cuttings from the mud, so that the clean mud can be re-circulated to continue the drilling process.

As the Geothermal drilling usually close or inside the downtown, this requires the mud system to be compact with less footprint and user friendly with less noisy. Also Geothermal well drilling sometimes require high capacity performance for deep wells. Below is the jobsite photo of mud cleaning system for geothermal drilling, which is produced and commissioning by GN solids control.

Like water well drilling, mud rotary drilling is also the desired method for installing geothermal loops. As the bit penetrates the soil, it creates smaller fragmented pieces that are called drill cuttings. The mud carries these cuttings to surface to create an open hole from the top down to the bottom. The drill cuttings are collected into a mud pan or settling pit on surface and then the mud is re-circulated to continue the drilling process.

Mainly there are 3 types of drilling fluids, water-based mud, oil based mud & synthetic based mud.

Synthetic-based fluid is a mud where the base fluid is a synthetic oil. This is most often used on offshore rigs because it has the properties of an oil-based mud, but the toxicity of the fluid fumes are much less than an oil-based fluid. This is important when men work with the fluid in an enclosed space such as an offshore drilling rig.

There is a technical limit to what can be achieved with water-based fluids, especially in the short and medium terms. For this reason, I believe advances in the environmental performance of synthetic-based fluids can be expected to occur faster, in combination with improved treatment and new drilling techniques. But synthetic based mud’s cost is much higher than water-based mud.

The mud recycling system for the 3 types of mud is basically similar but has little difference.

Synthetic based mud is mostly used for offshore drilling, people sometimes do not process and recycle the used mud at jobsite, they have the used drilling fluids in mud pits and transport them to a drilling fluids plant or factory for recycling and treatment, then ship back to the rig. In some other situations, they have the solids control system at jobsite, but no drilling waste management equipments at jobsite.

Water based mud is with cheaper cost and also environment friendly, it is mainly used for land drilling, in most oilfield in China or some developing countries, water based mud is widely used, and it works well with solids control system produced in China.
