Not only for drilling application( oil & gas drilling, HDD, geothermal, CBM, water well drilling), GN equipments can be also used for mining slurry separation, dredging slurry management, piling and tunneling.

Dredging and Dewatering equipments

Dredging and Dewatering equipments

GN dredging and dewatering equipments are designed to feed slurry directly from the dredge. GN dredging slurry separation system separates solids from dredging slurry through a three phase system.

In addition, the solids that are removed are dewatered to a stackable “press filter” state, which can be readily moved with front end loader, conveyor and/or dump trucks. The effluent is pumped off by a centrifugal pump.

The separation process is continuous and operates completely mechanically without any chemical enhancement. The dredging slurry separation system is designed as a three phase separation system, 1st separation is shale shaker, 2nd separation is desander, 3rd separation is desilter. Sometimes as the client’s requirement, we only design 2 phase shale shaker and desander. The desander and desilter are made into separate mud cleaner with large screen area.

Here share some new photos taken at CIPPE 2013( the largest petroleum show in Asia), which is held in Beijing at New China International Exhibition Center.

GN at CIPPE 2013

GN at CIPPE 2013

We take a lot of new equipments there, mainly divided into 3 sections:

1) 1 set of complete 500gpm trailer mounted mud system) for HDD( horizontal directional drilling)

2)1 set of drilling waste management system( trailer mounted) for drilling cuttings treatment

3)22inch big bowl big volume centrifuge GNLW553G

4) Mini mud cleaner (desander cone only),shaker screens

They include all GN main applications, HDD& CBM, oil & gas drilling solids control & drilling waste management. Generally speaking, the oil show is successful. Most solids control manufactures in China & in USA shared their new developed equipments. For example, trailer mounted mud system, Flocculation unit, Continue reading »

Coal Bed Methane (CBM) is natural gas contained primarily (about 90% -100%) of methane (CH4) found in coal seams. Methane is also the major component in petroleum natural gas (about 70% – 90%) that is widely used today. CBM is generated from the microbiological process or thermal process in the coal seam and recognized as one of the cleanest fossil fuels. Indonesia has one of the largest CBM reserves in the world with a potential 453 trillion cubic feet (“Tcf”), more than double the country’s natural gas reserves. The South Sumatra Basin, the largest CBM basin in Indonesia, is estimated to contain in-place resources of approximately 183 Tcf; and the Kutai Basin, the third largest CBM basin in Indonesia, is estimated to contain in-place resources of approximately 80 Tcf (SPE, 2004).

CBM shale shaker

CBM shale shaker

GN has exported many sets of mud tank system to Indonesia for CBM project. The technique to exploit CBM is different with that applied to the fossil natural gas, while both share the common in terms of marketing and utilization. Simply, CBM is exploited by drilling shallow wells into coal seams, dewatering the seams, extracting the methane from the seams and finally compressing the methane.

When design the CBM mud tank system, you should consider the following points:

1 shale shaker inlet method, usually the CBM well is lower than oil drilling well, maybe they will not use overhead manifold, but they have a mud pit and a submersible slurry pump to shale shaker.

2 fine particles, CBM drilling may contain much fine particles, most of clients will use high speed centrifuge.

3 Mud tank height, it should be a little lower than oil well drilling mud tank system.
