Synthetic-based mud recycling system

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.

What is offshore drilling?

Offshore drilling is one of the greatest technological breakthroughs in recent decades, and many new techniques have been developed to profit from the abundance of oil underneath the ocean floor. While drilling for oil has been around for hundreds of years in one form or the another, the effective extraction of petroleum from beneath the sea floor did not surface until the last forty years. The search for oil often turns out to be unproductive, but this practice is vital for the economic future of many nations.

Offshore drilling rig mud degasser

An offshore drilling company require the degasser from us

The drill vessel Belford Dolphin rig is considering installing a Diverter line degasser , in the vessels present offshore drilling location , the wells are subject to gas suspension in the riser (deepwater exploration) , venting this off via the choke and kill manifold to the present Poor Boy degasser  is not suitable.

The plan that is being researched at present is to install a degasser in the diverter line returning to the gumbo box.

Your model ZYQ1000 mud gas separator  or ZYQ1200 poor boy degasser is of interest to the vessel, please advise if a larger inlet can be fitted to these units IE  8” as opposed to a 5” inlet

Please supply a quote and delivery time for this offshore drilling mud degasser

The degassers for offshore drilling mud  as shown are minimal for what the client has requested from the rig.

On the present drilling location gas is being trapped in the riser (suspended in the mud) this is creating a situation were gas bubbles are coming out of the riser and causing mud to be expelled onto the drilling  rig floor , by the time this is noticed the gas bubble has all but dissipated , leaving a mess on the rig floor Continue reading
