The mining sector in Chile is one of the pillars of Chilean economy and copper exports alone stands for more than one third of government income. Mining Minerals exploration by diamond core drilling will need decanter centrifuge. Usually the decanter centrifuge for mining is different with oil & gas drilling. The latter one will be with small handling rate and high G force, it needs to separate fine microns. The decanter centrifuge used for oil drilling fluids usually with larger treating capacity( 40~60m3/h, like MI-Swaco 414, 518 series or GNLW363 &GNLW364G decanter centrifuge).

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 drilling mud system

natural gas drilling mud system

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.

 There is big demand of oilfield drilling mud system/solids control system in Venezuela. Before they mainly purchased the drilling mud system from USA . But now more and more clients realize that they can purchase rig packages from China, although the delivery time and transportation will be longer and complicated, they can save a considerable drilling cost.

A complete drilling fluids circulation system including shale shaker, mud cleaner( or separate desander, desilter), screw conveyer , Cutting dryer, recycling mud tank, decanter centrifuge(with feeding pump), drilling mud reserve tank/storage tank, etc.

After processed by cutting dryer, the large drilling cuttings have been separated out, the drilling fluids flows to recycling tank or to decanter centrifuge through screw pump. Since decanter centrifuge has higher separation factor than cutting dryer, it can separate fine particles from the drilling fluids and recycling barite to keep the drilling fluids balance.

Repairing an oil well sometimes requires a workover. It is commonly called by several names such as completion rig, workover rig, or pulling unit.

 Function of workover rig 

workover rig equipments and material

workover rig equipments and material

In many cases, workover implies the removal and replacement of the production tubing string after the well has been killed and a workover rig has been placed on location. Through-tubing workover operations, using coiled tubing, snubbing or slickline equipment, are routinely conducted to complete treatments or well service activities that avoid a full workover where the tubing is removed. This operation saves considerable time and expense.

 Companies that supply this type of equipment are Key Energy Services, Pool Workover Services, and Basic Well Services.

 Of all the problems that can occur during production, three stand out the most: equipment failure, wellbore problems, and saltwater disposal.

 WELLBORE PROBLEMS

 Sanding, formation damage, paraffin accumulation, oil-water emulsions, and corrosion are common wellbore problems.

 GN workover rig solids control system is mainly used for sanding problem. The system can separate large particles sand from the drilling fluids so the drilling mud can be recycled for drilling and “kill”the well. The working principle is to clean the drilling mud by 4 phase cleaning, they are shale shaker, desander, desilter, decanter centrifuge. But usually for workover operation, sometimes you can use a shale shaker and centrifuge only, because the sand size is not so large, but it needs to separate finer particles than oil& gas drilling.

Oil well drilling mud conditioner are manufactured in our China factory.We provide you with competitive price,best solutions for drilling mud condition.

The present invention relates to additives or conditioners for oil well drilling fluids, and more particularly to a boron-chrome lignosulfonate drilling fluid additive or mud conditioner.

Drilling mud conditioner

Drilling mud conditioner

GN Solids Control design and manufacture Drilling Mud Conditioner utilizes a combination of hydro cyclones and a linear motion shale shaker to separate solids from liquid. The combination of hydrocyclone cones utilized is dependent upon the specific application of duty. Cone combinations typically consist of a few desander cones (10-inch or 12-inch) and several desilter cones (4-inch).

The most commonly used drilling fluids are aqueous dispersions of clay. The drilling fluid or “mud” is pumped down a hollow drill string, through the bit at the bottom, and up the annulus formed by the hole or casing and the drill string to thesurface. After reaching the surface, various operations are performed on the drilling fluid to remove the cuttings and formation material thereform. The drilling fluid is then treated with additives to obtain a desired set of rheological properties,and is then pumped back into the well in a continuous circulating process.

A satisfactory drilling fluid must have various desired functions, such as gelling during temporary work stoppage and other functions well known in the art, which contribute to the success of the well drilling operation. In order to accomplishthese various functions, it has been found necessary to incorporate certain additives in the drilling fluid. Modified lignosulfonates derived from spent sulfite liquor obtained from the pulping of woods have proven to be effective additives forobtaining the desired properties in drilling fluids.

These cones are mounted above the screen deck of the linear motion  shale shaker. The mud is fed first through the hydrocyclones, where it subsequently cascades down over the shale shaker. The remaining solids, including barite, are returned to the active drilling mud system.

The screens used on the shale shaker determine the cut point for the mud conditioner unit. When weighted mud  are used, shaker screens are selected in a manner that ensures that the majority of the weight material is returned to the mud system. Typically, API 170 screens (>82.5 to 98.0 microns) are utilized to reduce the amount of weight material discarded by the screens.

Drilling mud conditioner are widely used in petroleum oil and gas exploration industry, no-dig engineering, geotechnical engineering, mine, metallurgy, coal, hydropower and many other industries.GN drilling mud conditioning equipment can be used in both onshore and offshore oilfield project.HDD Horinzontal directional drilling mud system
