Trip tank is a 7-8 cubic meter mud hold tank with trip pump beside shaker tank. Normally it’s including one mud tank, mud agitator, centrifugal pump and mud gun.

What is the trip tank do?

1. Provide sufficient hydrostatic pressure to prevent influx from reservoir. When TOH, mud hydrostatic will be lost because mud volume must substitute drill pipe volume pulled out of hole. If hydrostatic pressure decreases too much, influx from reservoir can come into the hole and make a trouble in well control. For this reason, mud in trip tank must be filled into hole to maintain hydrostatic pressure.
2. Kick Indicator: Volume of mud from the trip tank is pumped in the hole can be an indicator that relates to a situation occurring in wellbore as kick. If the volume of mud measured by trip tank is less than the expected volume of drill pipe volume tripped out of hole, the suspect problem is kick because volume of kick substitutes volume of mud.

Gas Drilling in Papua New Guinea

There are a lot of gas drilling in Papua New Guinea which will enable them to purchase drilling rigs and solids control system or equipment like shale shaker, decanter centrifuge, mud tank, centrifugal pump,etc. Origionly they like to purchase US rigs and solids control equipment, but they are trends to buy China equipment since China equipment is getting top quality with lower price.
