We supply complete mud circulation system for all the rigs we supplied. As a part of rig package, Mud system is a separate but an essential part, the handling of drilling fluids can save huge cost of drilling. Mainly used on oil & gas drilling, Coal bed methane drilling, horizontal directional drilling and also in geothermal drilling.
In mud system, Solids Control Equipments are used to maintain the drilling mud properties, normally in 4 phases of solids controls as below:
The First phase solids control controls with the shale shaker for solids up to 100 microns.
Secondary solids control by desander for solids up to 50 microns.
The third solids control by desilter unit to remove solids above 20 microns (Sometimes the desander and desilter are combined as one high efficiency mud cleaner).
The fourth solids control by centrifuge to separate solids up to 2-7 microns.
Mud System normally includes below mud tanks depends on their functionality:
Shaker Tank having Shale shaker, Desander, Desilter & Degasser as main solid control equipments.
Intermediate tank having centrifuge
Suction Tank with chemical treatment tank and fresh mud mixing hopper &
Reserve tanks for maintaining the mud flow circulation throughout the system.
All tanks are equipped with Agitators, Mud guns, Centrifugal pumps, Pipes & Fittings, Walkways & Handrails, Electrical & Instruments as necessary.
The drilling mud travels up the stand pipe and through the rotary hose, and then downward through the kelly or top drive system, drill pipe and bottom hole assembly by the mud pumps. It exits the drill string through the bit nozzles and picks up drill cuttings from the bottom of the hole. It then carries the cuttings up the annulus, pass the blowout preventers, and through the mud-return line to the shale shaker.
At the Shale shaker, the larger cuttings are screened out and diverted to a "Reserve pit" (actually a waste pit). Desander, Desilters and Centrifuges may be used to filter out smaller particles or cuttings. The mud flows through the active tanks to suction tank and finally, it returns via mud pumps to repeat the circuit.
Skid Mounted & Trailer Mounted Mud Circulation System for various drilling applications based on their Drilling Capacity, Drilling Depth, etc…
Our Mud Circulation System capacity ranges from 200 GPM ~ 1000 GPM based on different kinds of drilling applications and their capacities.
