As the crude oil market is down, we get more business from trenchless client. More and more sets of customized mud system export to MENA region.  One client is from North Africa region, they have rich experience in American Augers drilling rig & mud system operation. And now, they are searching for more cost-effective mud system for their HDD operation. They find GN and ask for quotation and mud system drawing for 1000gpm.  As the client only like the MCR-10000 mud system design from America Augers, we offer the similar mud system GNMS-1000GXL mud system.

3sets of shale shaker: GNZS703E-HB shaker. Each shaker model has treating capacity 500gpm. And 3sets of shaker can reach up to 1500gpm. As the client’s request, they will use two of them, and one of them as backup.

2sets of mud cleaner: GNZJ703E-2S12N.  Each mud cleaner have treating capacity 1000gpm. And 2sets of mud cleaner can reach up to 1000gpm. As the client’s request, they will use one of them for operation, the other one as backup.

3sets of centrifugal pump; two pump for feeding the cyclones in mud cleaner, and one pump for mixing hopper.

1set mixing hopper for mixing bentonite or barite.

trailer mounted mud tank with eight tyre for easy movement from site to site.

Another client from Middle East region has a smaller project, and need 100-150gpm mud system. The mud system is compact design with much cost effective equipment list, including double deck mud cleaner with coarse mesh screen, and four cyclones. The mud cleaner can remove +40microns solids particles. After mud cleaner, the clean mud will go to clean tank directly, and where bentonite or barite may also mixing there. One mud hopper and mixing pump also attached.

If you have some HDD project and need mud system, pls contact us freely.

GN has many different model shale shakers for option. Different area drilling operation may need different models. For example,

  • mining/diamond drilling project may require two panel screen shale shaker;
  • workover oil rig may require three panel screen shale shaker;
  • HDD project / water well drilling may also require three panel shale shaker
  • Big oil drilling rig may require three panel or four panel screen shale shaker
  • The drilling contractor can choose proper shale shaker model as per the technical request and budget.

Small water well rig may no need mud system, just requiring drill rig and mud pump. But for deep water well drilling, mud system is also necessary to get better drilling performance, and give better project to the drill rig bit and mud pump.

GN Solids Control mainly focus on oil drilling mud system. And we also have some client from water well drilling project, get mud system from GN; For example, client from Niger, they have 100 water wells project to improve the local life quality, and they bought the rig fro Italy Drillmec brand, and have mud system from GN.

3) 1ea mud hopper, the mud hopper is necessary to mix the chemicals and adjust the gravity of drilling fluids.

4) 3ea centrifugal pump. 2ea centrifugal pump is used for feeding the mud cleaner, desander cones and desilter cones. 1ea centrifugal pump working with mud hopper, to give power for mixing the chemicals.

5) 1ea mud tank to support all above mentioned solids control equipment. The mud tank is same size with container, can be locked on trailer, guarantee on the safety during transportation.

6) 1ea submersible slurry pump, this is option. The client can buy from GN the slurry pump for feeding the mud system, and even the hose to connect the slurry pump to the mud system.
