GN solids control provide solution for oilfield drilling waste disposal.

Oil and gas wells cannot be drilled without creating waste. However, with good waste management practices, the amount of waste can be reduced. By far, the greatest volume of waste generated in the drilling process is drilled cuttings. The first step is to use good solids control equipment, such as the GN linear motion shale shaker, mud cleaner, and decanter centrifuges.

When operated properly, the solids control equipment removes drilled solids from the mud, maintaining the rheology and thereby decreasing the need for dilution. Good solids control equipmentoperated properly also yields drier solids. Both decreased dilution and drier solids reduces waste and increase profits for the operator.
