The Drill cuttings Management solution is designed to help maximize compliance with the waste management hierarchy principles, as well as ensuring that local regulations and standards are complied with. Ultimately, disposal will be required in all cases, be it solids and / or liquids.

Drill cuttings management solution usually including but not limit to:

1 collection of drill cuttings

There are various ways to collect the drill cuttings from the solids control system( shale shaker, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge). Firstly you need a cuttings blowing pump to blow the drill cuttings and waste produced by centrifuge from a collection place in the site to a drill waste storage tank or directly to a transferred truck or boat, they called it ”bulk tank”. Then Screw conveyors are used to transport drill cuttings and centrifuge waste from one location on the rig to another, probably to a vertical cutting dryer in the drilling waste management system.

2 Storage of drill cuttings

A Drilling Waste Container is to storage drill cutting, centrifuge waste and pit cleaning wastes generated during drilling operations. The drilling waste containers are typically transported to a treatment and disposal site for further processing.

After the drilling waste is treated by vertical cutting dryer, the cuttings will be collected by a small waste container and be transported to other place, the fluids are pumped to high speed decanter centrifuge for further process.

Decanter centrifuge can be used as 2 functions: one is to used in drilling mud solids control system, to recycle drilling fluids and get barite. The other one is to used in drilling waste management system, to treat the drilling waste and recycle drilling fluids. GN decanter centrifuges are working in many sites in Brazil for such purpose.

Other related equipments with centrifuge:

In drilling fluids solids control system, centrifuge is used after desander and desilter, when they need to separate fine solids.

In drilling waste management system, centrifuge is used after cutting dryer, when they need to recycle the clean drilling fluids and drain off the cuttings. Sometimes it is used after hi-G shaker, it depends on the drilling mud type.

GN can provide both equipments related to the centrifuge.

People rent centrifuge because of the high cost of US centrifuge, also because of the maintenance cost, sometimes clients only want to use the centrifuge for a short while, so centrifuge rental is economic for them. But most of the clients rent centrifuge because they have Continue reading »

GN solids control has designed and produced many Liquid mud plant, and we can produce all the equipments for liquid mud plant, such as jet mud mixer, mixing hopper, centrifugal pump, decanter centrifuge, mud agitator, mud gun, mud mixing tank, pipeline system, electric control panel, etc.

Following is a proposal for a liquid mud plant for Brazil client. It has the following advantages.

1 Mud Storage tank 6 sets, total 360m3(87176 US gallons)

2 11KW mud agitator, 3 sets for each storage tank , 2 sets for centrifuge tank

3 Mud gun NJQ50-3, 2 sets for each storage tank, Function1 : to agitate mud , Function2: to transfer mud

4 Centrifuge tank, Active capacity: 30m3

5 Middle speed centrifuge LW450x1000N, the function is to Clean drilling fluids,

Separated cut point: 5~7μm, treating capacity 50m3/h

6 Screw pump, it can pump mud from each tank to centrifuge for cleaning, after processing, they can flow to any tank through pipelines

7 Jet mud mixer SLH150-50 on separate skid (hopper+mixing pump)

The function is to prepare and weight drilling mud

1 )Unit capacity: 240m3/h, unit mixing speed: 100kg/min

2) #1 and #2 jet mud mixer can work separately, also can work at the same time

3) The mixing pump also can be used as transfer pump, to pump mud from one tank to another, or to other tanks out of this plant

4) Mixing pump can mix or prepare mud for any tank in this plant

8 Tank accessories, like walkway, hand rail, clean gate, man hole, stairs, etc
