Oil rigs solids control system

Solids control system for oil rigs are treated more and more important. Solids control does not only meet demand of oil well drilling efficiency, cost, but also the environmental protection requirements

Solid control summarize

Solids control is a technique serving a drilling rig to separate the cuttings/solids out. If not cuttings will bring bad effect. Fluids carry out the cuttings out of well surface. Normally, a solids control system contains five stages: shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, and centrifuge. The shale shaker separates solids with diameter above 75μm, the desander addresses solids from 46-74μm, and the desilter segregates solids between 15-45μm. Sometimes , mud cleaner replaces separated desander and desilter. When air enters the drilling fluids, a vacuum degasser separates the air out of fluids. When there is no air in the mud, the degasser works as a big agitator.

Mud tank is the platform for all of above listed equipment. After separating the solids, pumps transfer the clean mud  into the borehole again as a circulation.

Advances of solid control system

Recent advances in solids control include the creation of a closed loop system which allows for increased environmental control and reduction in the potential for spills of drilling fluids. More and more drilling contractors have either utilized or are considering the implementation of closed loop systems, particularly for hydro-fracturing operations.

Solids control platform

For complete mud system, mud tanks are treated as platform as they are vessels containing the drilling fluids. They are carrier for solids control equipment. Including shale shaker, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge, mud agitators and pumps.

Based on different drilling rigs we’ll configure various solids control platform. Tanks quantity and volume vary significantly, certain equipment capacity or flow rate will be various as well. Besides oil drilling rig solids control system we need the solid control platform for work over rigs and HDD projects as well.

Most of clients and users have noted drilling mud and processing importance. So the solids control or related equipment are more and more popular. That’s not only because of cost but also the environment effect.
