A mud plant is a place used for prepare the drilling mud for drilling rigs, it could be regarded as a mud station. In some mud plant, the used mud can be also treated then returned to solids control system. 7500BBL mud plant is not a small one.

This liquid mud plant manufactured by GN Solids Control is combined by following sections:

1. Mud mixing tank with agitators. This tank is used for prepare the drilling mud by adding useful chemicals into it through a mud mixing hopper. This mud mixing tank also has a storage capacity of 7500BBL.

2. Mud mixing hopper and mud mixing pump. In practice, a mud mixing hopper and a mud mixing pump could be regarded as a integrate mud mixing unit, which can be located on a mud mixing tank or separately besides and mud mixing tank. The end user can choose parallel hoppers together and 2 centrifugal pumps to be linked in parallel. Either pump could serve for either hopper, one for use, the other back up.

3. Vertical mud storage tanks, totally 14 sets, each with 500BBL volume. In order to save space, those storage tanks are made in cylinder shape vertically. All tanks are equipped with level meter to show the mud volume inside. By well-designed pipelines, pump from outside those tanks can suck mud from each tank.

Besides the mud liquid plant, GN Solids Control can also provide waste management systems for both drilling cuttings treatment and drilling fluids treatment, including chemical dosing and decanter centrifuge. For mud liquid plant, clients can invest in such a system to treat the used drilling mud, to remove the particles from the drilling liquid and return the clean mud back to the mud plant.
