Workover is used to refer to any kind of oil well intervention involving invasive techniques, such as wireline, coiled tubing or snubbing. More specifically though, it will refer to the expensive process of pulling and replacing a completion.

Workover Rig is available for both onshore as well as offshore. Before any workover, the well must first be killed. Since workovers are long planned in advance, there would be much time to plan the well kill and so the reverse circulation would be common. The intense nature of this operation often requires no less than the capabilities of a drilling rig.

Workover parts may include the following parts basically:

Workover rig, Manifold, triplex mud pump, mud system, BOP, Top drives, Blow out preventers.

Workover mud system:

GN solids control produced workover mud system for 250HP, 350HP, 450HP, 550HP, 650HP,750HP workover rigs. They have been applied in more than 60 countries in the world. Some clients may get the mud system from rig package supplier. But a much sane choice is to buy the mud system separately from solid scontrol Continue reading »

GN designed and produce a complete set of 10000feet drilling mud system, it is around 3000m dept and horse power 750HP. It including 4 mud tanks,recycling tank, active tank, mixing tank, mixing skid. It is a customized system according to client’s isea.

Technical specification of 10000 feet drilling mud system:

10000ft drilling mud system

10000ft drilling mud system

1)      Recycling Tank (40feet Container Size) with 2 GNPS703 Shale Shaker,1GNZJ703 Mud Cleaner with 2x10inch Desander cones,12x4inch Desilter cones,and as well as desander desilter feeding centrifugal pump SB8x6-13(55Kw).And one trip pump for the trip compartment.

2)      Active Tank(40Feet Container Size) with Mud Agitators and Mud Guns.

3)      Mixing Skid(20feet container size) with 2 mud hopper, One SB8x6-13(55KW) Centrifugal Pump and one shear pump.

4)      Mixing Tank(40feet container size) with one SB8x6-13(55Kw) mixing pump and one mud hopper, completed with mud agitators and mud guns.

Usually clients will buy 10000ft drilling rig from USA, so the electricity is 460V60HZ, 480V/60HZ, GN drilling mud system can meet their electricity rate. And our explosion proof mark of the electric control system is class1, div 1. As a part of the land rig of 10000ft, our drilling mud system including pipelines from shale shaker inlet to outlet of mud pump charging pump, including mixing pipeline, water pipeline, mud gun pipeline, overflow line, suction line,etc. Also we provide mud gas separator installed on the trip tank( if the mud system has a separate trip tank.) In this 10000 feet drilling mud system, their trip tank is in the 1st recycling tank, they have a trip compartment with trip pump.

GN solids control produce mud recycling system/circulation system for both land rig(onshore drilling) and offshore drilling.

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.

List of the top offshore drilling service companies

1 Transocean-the world’s largest offshore well services drilling company

Largest offshore driller with 165 mobile offshore drilling and production units, inland drilling barges and supporting assets.
– Largest “floating” rig driller with more than 60 semisubmersibles and drillships.
– Largest deepwater driller with almost 40 units that can drill in more than 2,000 feet of water.
– Largest shallow-water driller with 54 jackups, including the largest jackup fleet in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico with 27units.
– Largest inland drilling barge driller with more than 30 units.
– Largest offshore driller in market equity capitalization.

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

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.


 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.
