Couple months before, GN delivered 3 units of poor boy degasser to GNPC. Today GN finished another order of poor boy degasser from a France Client. GN’s poor boy degasser is manufactured as per API and ISO standard for underbalanced condition drilling to prevent dramatic pressure surges. For most of the deep drilling rig, a poor boy degasser is indispensable equipment for safety operation consideration. 
On oil drilling site, the poor boy degasser is always located beside the mud recycling system. In normal condition, the dirty mud back from well will go directly to the drilling mud shale shaker for solids separation. Under this condition, the poor boy degasser will not be applied. In case gas layer was intruded, a blowout might happen. This is the when the poor boy degasser will be used.

GN’s poor boy degasser is with simple structure for gas cut mud hitting on the baffle plates for dispersion, and then the gas separated The degasser unit could be designed to fix on a skid, thus the poor boy could be folded and easily moved on site. The chock manifold can also be installed on the skid. Before the drilling mud getting into the poor boy degasser, the chock manifold will reduce the pressure of the mud firstly.
Mostly, the poor boy degasser will be connected with an ignition device. The flammable and poisonous gas discharged from the poor boy degasser will be guided to the ignition device for burning out. Safety should be give the priority forever in any jobsite. 
GN Solids Control is able to provide a one stop solution for all solids control equipment request, as well as the complete mud recycling system. If any request aroused, please feel free to contact with GN.
