Directional drilling (DD) is seen as a marriage of conventional road boring and the directional drilling of oil wells.

It is also known as directional boring, horizontal drilling, slant drilling, or deviated drilling, is a method of trenchless technology that involves drilling a non-vertical well or borehole. It can be broken down into three main groups: Oilfield Directional Drilling, Utility Installation Directional Drilling (or H.D.D. or Horizontal Directional Drilling) Directional boring, and in-seam directional drilling to extract coal bed methane.

Many directional boring machines also use a drilling fluid or slurry called mud. Other machines use foam or air, or both. The drilling fluid or mud is composed of bentonite clay and water with additives for enhancing performance. The higher-pressure jet of fluid is used in soft ground to cut through the soil. The cuttings then get suspended in the fluid. As more fluid is pumped down into the hole, the cuttings are brought back up to surface where they settle in a pit or are removed mechanically.
GN solids control equipments are used to handle the drilling mud with cuttings, to separate the big cutting out of the drilling fluids, so that the mud can be used for drilling again.

For oilfield directional drilling, we provide a complete solids control system, including 4-class cleaning of mud, shale shaker – desander – desilter – centrifuge, sometimes vacuum degasser is applied.

Directional boring has evolved steadily over the last 20 years and is now the preferred method on many installations due to its low cost and low impact on surroundings.

GN solids control will ship a complete directional boring mud recycling system to Brazil for application. The directional boring equipments we produce including HDD mud system, shale shaker, mini mud cleaner, desander, mixing pump, jet mud mixer, etc.

Directional boring, commonly called horizontal directional drilling or HDD, is a method of installing underground pipes and conduits along a prescribed bore path from the surface, with minimal impact to the surrounding area.

GN direction boring equipments application

The process is used for installing telecommunications & power cable conduits, water lines, sewer lines, gas lines, oil lines, product pipelines and environmental remediation casings. It is used for crossing waterways, roadways, shore approaches, congested areas, environmentally sensitive areas and any area where other methods are more expensive.

They have been used in Australia, Indonesia, Brazil, France, Singapore, application including HDD, diamond drilling, water well drilling. Our directional boring equipments have been showed in Australia no-dig show, and it is approved by many HDD operators. We will take another set of HDD mud cleaning system in CIPPE ( world’s largest oil show) held in Beijing, if you want to check its performance, pls visit us in CIPPE.

Natural gas drilling rigs can be used not only to identify geologic reservoirs but also to create holes that allow the extraction of natural gas from those reservoirs. Primarily in onshore gas fields once a well has been drilled, the drilling rig will be moved off of the well and a service rig (a smaller rig) that is purpose-built for completions will be moved on to the well to get the well on line. This frees up the drilling rig to drill another hole and streamlines the operation as well as allowing for specialization of certain services, i.e., completions vs. drilling.

Natural gas is a naturally occurring gas mixture consisting primarily of methane, typically with 0–20% higher hydrocarbons. It is found associated with other hydrocarbon fuel, in coal beds, as methane clathrates, and is an important fuel source and a major feedstock for fertilizers.

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, uses huge volumes of water, chemicals and sand injected into rock at high pressure to release natural gas. Its development has unleashed a natural gas boom in the US and around the world. US has developed such method to drill for natural gas.

GN solids control provide mud cleaning system for directional drilling and fracking for natural gas, we are thinking to design such mud system for US market. All the electric motors and control panels will use IECex certified or US motors.

To design a system, we need to clarify the following questions:

1 What kind of drilling you are doing?

2 What is your required active capacity of the mud pits

3 What equipments you used before? If you have no experience, we will provide our standard design.

Thanks for your info. about your needs for drilling fluids  system and submersible slurry pump

,now we are clear about your requirements.

We enclosed two directional drilling mud  system we ever manufactured for our customer and the quotation for your models.

About the Submersible slurry pump,from your system conditions,we recommend a new model of our company to you.It has higher flow but low power.

2,About the mud Cleaner,your current one doesn’t work properly  is probably because the parts of the whole system doesn’t integrated well.The sand pumps, the submersible slurry pump,the hydrocyclone and the linear motion shale shaker should intergrate according to the whole system treating capacity.

From your 4×3 sand pump,we know your treating capacity,and our design for you is a well integrated one.We have ever designed many complex for systems for drilling.Our technology are real projects proved.We insist on providing customer customized cost-effective solutions.

For any further info. Pls let us know.

Awaiting for your soon reply.We will try our best to supply you the best drilling mud system and submersible slurry pump.

We got an inquiry for a directional drilling mud system.

Jessie , We currently own a 4,000 gal mud recycler which our company built ourselves which the current shale  shaker does not seem to work properly .

We are a trenchless directional drilling company and have been in the industry for 15 years .

The recycle we own has a three tank system , a settling 2,0000 l , a desilt 4,000l and a active clean tank 11,000 approx values .

This directional drilling mud system has 2   4×3 pumps which 1 is used for running 6 x 3″ hydro cyclones and the other to drive mud guns and to charge the drill rig mud pump

The shaker is a double decker (doublelife from Oklahoma USA ) with 5ft x 4ft screens . The bottom is used as scalper shale shaker and the top handles the underflow from the hydrocylones(drying screens) . This is the directional drilling mud  system weakness and we want to improve this but still use the current tank structure .

The genset we have is a 85kva .

Can you help us and how much would it cost for the mud cleaner that you have sent photos of ?

Please find the attached pictures of our directional drilling mud system .
