Per experiences and calculated data, the drilling liquid occupies in any well drilling is between 4 percentage to 10 percentages, no matter in onshore drillings or offshore drillings. Considering its effects on the drilling operation performance, which occupies nearly 50 percentages, the drilling fluid is quite vital to the drilling.

GN Waste Management Equipment

That’s why, a professional drilling manager has to have a professional team for the drilling mud services, or find a qualified drilling fluid service company. In practice, drilling companies or drilling contractors always focus on drilling work, and employing a subcontractor for the solids control system. Each drilling rig has eight systems connected to each other, among which, the solids control system is comparably independent. An expertized drilling fluid company has the right personnel and suitable equipment, and more important, they know how to treat the fluid well.

A professional oil service companies provide following services:
1. Solids control equipment and services. The solids control systems help to treat the drilling fluid directly from the well mouth. It contains three or four phases for separation, including the shale shaker as the first phase, the desander cones as the second phase, the desilter cones as the third. Some include the decanter centrifuge as the forth one. In most solids control systems, there are mixing unit for adding more chemicals into the fluid when necessary.
2. Drilling cuttings waste management systems, in some countries, this part is also regarded as a part of solids control, because this is also for treating the solids from the drilling fluid. Those systems always contains the vertical cuttings dryer, the high G drying shaker and the decanter centrifuge.
3. Drilling fluid waste management, it is the further treatment for the drilling fluid. As the fluid has been used for a long time, this system uses some chemicals to flocculate the extra fine particles into larger ones before being separated out by a decanter centrifuge.
As one of the leading manufacturers of solids control and waste management, GN Solids Control has been providing lots of oil service companies in the world for all above mentioned systems and equipment. For more information or a formal quotation, welcome to contact GN directly.

In a complete oil and gas drilling system, there are solids control system and drilling cuttings waste management system to combine a complete line for drilling mud recycling. Generally speaking, all the treating phases after the solids control system could be called as waste management system, because the solids control system is always together with the drilling rig and served as a closed loop during the drilling works. In traditional experiences, after drilling one well, the drilling cuttings would be transferred to a specific place to get further separation, for drilling waste management.

The drilling waste management system could be divided into 2 phases, the first phase is vertical cuttings dryer / high-G drying shaker plus decanter centrifuge combination, the second phase is dewatering system, with a dewatering unit, flocculation system and a high speed centrifuge combination.

1. First stage waste management system: vertical cuttings dryer + decanter centrifuge

2. Second stage waste management system: dewatering unit + decanter centrifuge

But recently, the boundary between solids control system and drilling waste management system is not as clear as before. In some countries, for every drilling rig, before start the drilling work, there must be a waste management system accompanying. That’s why, some companies are consider the vertical cuttings dryer/ high-G drying shaker plus decanter centrifuge combination as a part of solids control, while only the dewatering unit is as waste management system.

The separation process before dewatering unit is physical separation, and since the dewatering unit, it is kind of chemical separation. GN Solis Control, as the first API Certified solids control manufacturer in China, has provided to more than 60 countries and regions complete range of solids control and waste management systems and equipments including all above mentioned equipments including the dewatering unit.

May you have interest, welcome to contact us freely. We have a in-time pre-sale service, like recommending suitable equipments and give draft design for the systems and also reassuring after sale service of one week free of charge first commissioning. And GN always have in stock spare parts for quick delivery to clients.

Every day, when you open a daily or weekly newspaper, or even a monthly magazine, you could find at least one article written about the crude oil price. No doubt, this subject has become one of the hottest topics because, to shock to everyone, the crude oil price has dropped in half a year, to half as before.

People is used to see the crude oil price to fluctuate, higher or lower, just for a while, no matter caused by political, economic, or anything. But to see the crude oil to keep dropping for 6 months and get to this point, and further more, seems not to the end yet, it is really above the expectation. Foreseeing economists, this time, failed again to broadcast this.



For common people, the only connection between me and the oil seems only the car consumption for petro. I will do nothing about it, of course, couldn’t do nothing about it. I just drive from home to work and enjoy the less cost than before. And hopefully, in future, all products I need to use and produced by oil will have a lower price.

GN Solids Control

But as an Oil company or drilling company, if I were, what should I do when the aspired benefit margin is squeezed so much? As is known to all, this time, even APEC itself, couldn’t change the price of crude oil, so we have to accept the price reluctantly. And in order to survive, what we must do now, is to cut the cost, to find more cost-effective equipments manufacturers and service providers. As a consumable system in a drilling rig system, the solids control system is one of my concern.

GN’s Products

GN Solids Control, as the TOP solids control manufacturer in China, is always giving good price for best equipments to its clients. It has very cost-effective solutions and never sell spare parts at a high price. It is always ready to support to old and new customers via its professional equipments and service.

As one of the most complicated process in the world, drilling is very difficult to understand. For a common people, we need to learn some necessary subjects and try to understand the drilling process (such as various drilling tools should be chosen properly) in the practical usage.


When people do the drilling work, it’s sure that many underground materials such as rock or wood as well as some other hard materials will be extracted from those digged holes.

For most people, we might have no idea of environmental drilling. In the Drilling Waste Management, the environmental drilling is commonly used. Compared to the vertical drilling process or horizontal drilling process, the environmental drilling seems a little complicated and this is usually used in water wells.

In order to get the underground water, we need to use some pumps after drilling a hole and extract the mud from it. Various pumps (for example mechanical pumps or vertical turbine pumps) can be used pump the water to the ground. Although there are still some undeveloped regions using labor to draw water from well by tying ropes with a set of bucket, most places are using Mechanical Shear Pump.

As the development of environmental drilling fluids, to get water from wells are becoming easier and easier than many years ago. At the same time, since people are having much more strict demands on the water quality, we need an extra process which is to eliminate those harmful materials from the underground water.

Nowadays, pumps that are using electricity are much more popular, there are no doubt the electrical pumps having many large advantages. When drilling a well, it is very important to consider how to extract mud from underground. As to GN Solids Control, a famous brand in the world, clients from sixty countries are using GN Solids Control Equipments. Any questions are welcomed to contact GN engineers.
