1500HP Drilling Rig Solids Control Equipment for African Client

Without doubt that oil price is at a peak high level due to complicated international relations and under a long time of recovery from COVID, more and more energy companies are investing on capital equipment and planning to product more oil in the coming years. 

As a leading solids control equipment manufacturer, GN Solids Control has provided thousands of successful drilling mud solids control systems to global drilling contractors, and today we would like to share another batch of 1500HP drilling rig solids control equipment we provided to a African client. 

GN Solids Control delivered 3 sets shale shakers GNZS594F-SHBF, 1 set mud cleaner GNZJ594F-3S16N, 2 sets decanter centrifuges GNLW363D and mud hoppers etc. 1.GN Drilling Mud Shale ShakerGN Shale Shaker (model GNZS594F-SHBF) is a 4 panels shaker, fixed with Italy OLI vibrators. Under the linear motion of G force up to 7.5, shale shaker is able to remove solids above 100 microns. GN shale shaker is able to change the working angle conveniently to adjust the liquid pool without stop running by using the patent design of synchronous lifting lead screw from either shaker side. 2.GN Mud Cleaner GN Mud Cleaner (model GNZJ594F-3S16N) is a shaker fixed with 3 sets 10inch cyclones and 12 sets 4 inch cyclones. Different sizes cyclones remove different range particles out when two centrifugal pump feeds mud into them separately, and the bottom shaker deck can further remove fine particles out. 

3.GN Decanter CentrifugeDecanter centrifuge has a large variety of usage when speaks of solids and liquid separation. GN Decanter Centrifuge (model GNLW363D) has a 14 inch rotating bowl, running at max speed of 3800 rpm to remove fine particles 2~5 microns from the drilling mud.  4.GN Mixing Mud Hopper After treated by above GN Solids Control equipment, clean drilling mud can be reused and pumped back to drilling rig after added with new barite or drilling chemicals to adjust the mud gravity. GN Mud hopper is a effective venturi type hopper to help expedite the drilling chemicals run into clean drilling mud fast.

Oilfield Centrifuges and Drilling Cuttings Screw Conveyor for Middle East ......

With the oil price at a high level, more and more energy companies are trying to expend the production so as to more the more drilling contractors or drilling mud service companies are making capital investment on large oil and gas drilling mud solids control equipment and drill cuttings waste management systems.

Recently GN Solids Control finished another batch of oilfield centrifuges and drilling cuttings screw conveyors for a Middle Eastern customers. It mainly includes 9 sets drilling waste decanter centrifuge, 3 sets oil based mud cuttings dryer, 12 sets screw conveyors and 12 sets screw pumps.

1.GN Decanter CentrifugeGN decanter centrifuge is one of the more popular drilling mud treating equipment especially the 14 inch bowl size among those various models from 9 inch to max. 30 inch bowl.GN decanter centrifuge runs at high rotating speed, the rotating bowl and screw propeller rotating at the same direction but with a differential speed so the large density solids are pushed along the internal bowl and discharged from the solids port, while the relatively clean water is collected in the middle circle and pushed through the liquid ports.2.GN Cuttings DryerGN Cuttings Dryer is one key treating equipment when speaks of oil base cuttings or synthesized base cuttings treatment. Usually after treated by GN cuttings dryer oil on the final cuttings can be downsized to less than 5% from 15%, recovered oil can be send to refinery plant for further treating and resell.

Screen basket of the Cuttings Dryer is hard faced, with 3 different openings 0.25, 0.35 and 0.5 mm for option. GN cuttings dryer is self-lubricated with an automatic oil lubrication system.3.GN Screw ConveyorScrew conveyor is widely used to transfer solids materials with limited distance. These 12 sets GN screw conveyors are used to collect the cuttings after treated by shale shaker, desander or desilter and feed into GN cuttings dryer.

4.GN Screw PumpGN screw pump is also called GN positive displacement pump, which usually used as the feeding pump for decanter centrifuge. Due to the special structure, every run of the rotator is a fixed volume, so it can feed a linear capacity fluids by control the rotating speed which can be controlled on GN centrifuge’s HMI control panel.
