Xinjiang is located in most northwest of China, and in Xinjiang, there are rich oil reservations which brings to the region and country wealth. Meanwhile, Xinjiang Province is one of the most beautiful places in the world, where there are pretty meadows, great mountains, and clear lakes. In order to utilize the resources without bringing damage to the environment, the drilling companies and contractors must pay attention to how to safely and efficiently treat the drilling cuttings.
As per the different drilling fluids used for the oil and gas exploration, there are mainly 3 kinds of drilling fluids, water based mud, oil based mud and synthetic based mud. Among those 3, the oil based mud is the most popular one to be used. In this case, the oil based mud is used for the project in Xinjiang, and GN Solids Control supplied a proposal with following equipment for further treatment of drilling cuttings from oil based mud solids control system, from the shaker discharge:

  1. Vertical cuttings dryer GNCD930, which is designed for the oil based mud drilling cuttings, by using the suitable screen basket among 0.25mm,0.3mm and 0.5mm, the oil on cuttings could be reduced to 0.05% after discharge.
  2. Decanter centrifuge GNLW363-VFD, a middle sized high speed decanter centrifuge for further treatment of drilling cuttings saved from vertical cuttings dryer. The high speed centrifuge can efficiently remove the particles between 2 to 5 microns.
  3. Centrifuge feeding pump and vertical cuttings dryer flushing pump. Both pumps are screw pumps from Netsch brand, who has been cooperating with GN company for years.
  4. conveyors for transferring cuttings. GN has been making screw conveyors for years, and GN Screw conveyors are of high quality. Besides the screw conveyor, for drilling cuttings transferring, GN also has vacuum pump available.
    For more information, welcome to contact GN freely.
