It is always not easy trip to get big tenders, after few months' documentation preparation and request following up, GN finally was awarded the tender of solids control equipment for 16 drilling rigs in Ukraine.
The client was planning to upgrade the existing mud recycling system by replacing the old equipment. This tender includes 30 units decanter centrifuges, 30 units shale shaker and mud cleaners, and 6 units vacuum degassers.
Shale shakerand mud cleaner are the equipment use to remove the large size drilling cuttings in the drilling fluids. GN's shale shakers model of GNZS594E-HB which is especially designed for the oil and gas drilling with weir feeder to buffer the high pressure impact for protecting the shaker screen. The screen deck of the shaker is adjustable from -1°to +5°,operator could even adjust the shaker deck during running of the shaker. With the G force up to 7.5, the shaker could greatly dry the solids for drilling fluids recovering. The cyclone manifold is bolted fixing on the shaker unit and could be removed for easy transportation and installation.
Vacuum degasserunit is installed after the shale shaker and before the mud cleaner. It is used to remove the gas in the gas cut in drilling fluids. By removing the gas, the vacuum degasser could ensure the drilling fluids with a proper gravity. And the centrifugal pump could transfer the drilling fluids to the cyclone unit with sufficient pressure.
Decanter centrifugeis used to remove the fine solid particles in drilling fluids. The client equipped 2 unit centrifuges for each of the drilling rig. When drilling, the decanter centrifuge with low speed could be used for barite recovery, and the other centrifuge with high speed would be used for ultra-fine solids separation.
To make sure the project operate smoothly, the equipment have been divided into 4 batches for delivery. The remaining units are still under fabrication progress.
This is a special designed system, for helicorpter, which was a big challenge. And it comes on time, we have done a lot of R&D on equipment, upgrading the shale shaker, optimise the decanter centrifuge, further cooperate with client to have one stop solution for waste management, oil sludge separation; and work on TDU research for years, which is now in production process. Yes, the simple mud tanks, now it is time to have some challenge, and it is time to make some better mud tanks which we are more proud of.
With some experience we had before, production of small diamond drilling system, which is also firstly been used in PNG, and the biggest concern back that time is weight limitation is 900kg. While now it is 9ton, and with bigger tank, more factors been brought up.
- Weight & Design Less than 9 ton, and we do not want to lose volume, neither strength. So here it comes, how to find the best solution. All skids, with SolidWork, have been carefully calculated. Not only weight, analysis takes more effort.
- Material To meet the critical standard, all the material have been carefully selected, SS316 pipeline, high strength plates, PPG painting, and top quality famous brand valves, unions, bearings.
- Process Welding proceedure comply with AWS, ASME, NDT, lifting test; all the necessory steps to make sure it is done properly.
- Heard this brand before, and discussed with some reference
- GN is willing to take some challenge, to do some higher standard / requirement product
- GN got the ability to do this
- Years of experience API Q1 quality control
Oil & Gas Indonesia is a comprehensive showcase for petroleum exploration, production and refining services and products. It is held in Indonesia every two years to gather the petroleum professionals, decision makers and suppliers for advanced techniques communication and deal closing.
GN entered into this market by supplying the solids control equipment there for drilling fluids recovery. With the development of GN and the much stricter regulation on drilling waste discharging, GN’s drilling waste management equipment was brought into this market.
This time, GN team will show there new developed shaker screens. Welcome all visitors to GN stand for business negotiation and ideas exchanging. Please write down below information leading you to GN stand.
Shaker screen is one type of wear parts used on shale shaker. As per different mud condition, the lifetime of the screen panels would be various. However, comparing with other parts on solids control equipment, the replacing frequency of screen is much higher. This is the why more and more people focus on the screen business. Since GN second plant come into use, the quality and production speed was much increased. Nowadays, GN is able to manufacture the replacement screen to fit almost all well know shakers in the industry. In order to ensure the quality, GN use robot for frame welding and composite material injection molding. This greatly increased the products consistence and usage & storage time.
Besides the drilling mud solids control equipment, GN is also able to provide the full line equipment used in drilling waste cutting treatment and oily sludge recovery solution. Welcome GN stand for more information on GN new developments including equipment and concept.
