Drilling mud solid control and waste management

Introduction of Drilling mud solid control system:

Solid control system is a technique used in a drilling rig to separate the solids in the drilling fluids that are crushed by the drill bits and carried out of the well surface. Normally, a solid control system contains five stages: the mud tank, shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, and centrifuge. The shale shaker is used to separate big solids with diameter above 75μm, the desander addresses solids from 45-74μm, and the desilter segregates solids between 15-44μm. Sometimes the desander and desilter are combined as one high efficiency mud cleaner. When air enters the drilling fluids, a vacuum degasser is used to separate the air. When there is no air in the mud, the degasser works as a big agitator. All these stages are mounted on the top of the mud tank. After separating the solids, the clean mud can be pumped into the borehole again.The mud system with 4 phases of solids control process can be understood as the 5 phase purification system. From shale shaker, vacuum degasser, to Desander cone, Desilter cone, and the decanting centrifuge: different working principle, different separation point. Every well drilling requires such a system to process drilling mud. However, per different well depth and different drilling conditions we’ll get different configurations and different results.

Introduction of Drillingmud waste management:

Drilling waste management system, also called as drill cutting treatment system or drilling cutting management system. According to different applications, it can be classified as water-base drilling waste management system and oil-base drilling waste management system.

The main Drilling waste management equipments are drying shaker, cutting dryer, decanter centrifuge, screw conveyor, screw pump and tanks. The drilling waste management system can effectively control the moisture content (6%-15%) and oil content (2%-8%) in drilling cuttings and stabilizes the liquid phase performance.

Solids Control and Waste Management

KOSUN focus on production Solids Control and Waste Management Equipment  in Drilling Operations since 1992. KOSUN is a professional company providing comprehensive solutions to solid waste treatment in the field of energy conservation and environmental protection, which focuses on development and services of complete technologies and equipment of sludge reduction and resource utilization.

The solids control system forms the first waste management practice in any drilling operation. It removes drill cuttings from the drilling mud at the surface just before the mud re-enters the mud-pit for recirculation. Apart from drill cuttings, the solids control equipment also removes some gases and other contaminants in the mud before they are re-circulated. The early removal of these solids avoids accumulation and clogging of the system and the separation devices sizes of solids.

The components of the solids control system will depend upon the types of drilling fluid used, these formations being drilled, the available equipment on the rig, and the specific requirements of the disposal option. But basically, standard solid control equipment will comprise of shale shakers, degassers, desanders and desilters. The mud passes over a shale shaker, which is basically a vibrating screen. This removes the larger particles, while allowing the residue to pass into settling tanks. The finer particles are further removed in the desanders and desilters. If the mud contains gas from the formation it will be passed through a degasser which separates the gas from liquid mud, having passed through all the mud processing equipment the mud is returned to the mud tanks for recycling, while the residue (drill cuttings with adhered drilling fluid) is either kept in a temporary storage facility for treatment and final disposal or direct discharged into the sea. In general, the solids control equipment reduces the volume of drilling waste requiring disposal.

KOSUN oil-based mud drilling waste treatment system

Kosundrilling waste treatment system is also known as drilling mud zero-discharge, rock cuttings mud zero-discharge, drill cuttings mud zero-discharge, mud while drilling mud zero-discharge. According to the useage, it is divided into: water-based mud zero-discharge and oil-based mud zero-discharge. Its main equipment includes: dry shale shaker, drill cuttings dryer, drilling fluid centrifuge, screw conveyor, screw pump, etc. The mud zero-discharge can effectively control the cuttings moisture content (6% -10%) in the drilling mud, stabilize the liquid phase performance, and achieve the purpose of mud zero-discharge drying treatment. According to customer needs and site conditions, the mud zero-discharge system can be customized.

Filter presses and drill cuttings dryers are important equipment for processing drilling mud waste to achieve solid-liquid separation and dehydration and drying. Compared with drill cuttings dryer, the filter press is an early dewatering device for waste drilling mud. It requires the addition of chemical auxiliary, the screen cloth is easy to block, the operation is complicated, the labor intensity is high, and the maintenance cost is high. The drill cuttings dryer is a new type of solid-liquid separation and drying equipment. It does not need to add chemical auxiliary. The
vibrating screen is not easy to block. the installation area is small. It is easy to install and operate. The processing capacity is strong. . With low maintenance costs, at present, it has become an popular equipment for domestic and foreign enterprises to solve the problem of solid-liquid separation and drying of mud in the fields such as drilling while abandoning or abandoned mud ponds, and the treatment of mud zero-discharge .

Sludge dewatering and capacity reduction is not only an important part of sludge treatment.

Sludge dewatering and capacity reduction is not only an important part of sludge treatment, but also the most difficult part to realize. Domestic sewage treatment plants can only reduce the sludge moisture content to about 80% by mechanical dehydration, and a large amount of water brings great difficulties to the follow-up treatment of sludge. If the water is removed by means of heat evaporation, the huge energy consumption makes the sludge treatment cost high.

The reason why sludge dewatering and capacity reduction is difficult is that the sludge obtained in the sewage treatment process has high hydrophilicity, which makes it difficult for the water in the sludge to be liquid to achieve low-cost and efficient separation, resulting in the dewatering sludge difficult to achieve the economic and environmental unity of the treatment goal.

The sludge produced by sewage treatment has a high water content. Due to the combination of water and sludge particles, mechanical method to remove the sludge has a certain limit. The content of organic matter in the sludge, the proportion of ash, especially the addition of flocculant, has an important impact on the final solid content.Mud cake is still high in moisture content and fluid property, so it is difficult to dispose of it and the cost is still high, so it is necessary to further reduce the amount.At this point, in addition to natural air drying, only through the input of heat to form evaporation, can achieve a large reduction.The process of using heat to dry is called heat drying.

Produced in the process of oil and gas exploration and development, drilling fluid waste amount is large.

Produced in the process of oil and gas exploration and development, drilling fluid waste amount is large, due to containing various products at the same time, the concentration of pollutant composition complex, high, high chromaticity, chemical oxygen demand (cod), the traditional approach is difficult to adapt to the new environmental protection requirements, an urgent need to accelerate drilling waste management efficient treatment and new technology, new technology and new equipment development, application, change the traditional waste drilling fluid end management ideas, set up the drilling pollution “wellsite closed loop” process control and new concept of clean production and complete the engineering application, Realize the new drilling clean production mode of “well standardization, green source, process reduction, end resource and equipment integration”.

Based on this, we look forward to the next trend: first, we should strengthen the exploration and field application of environmental protection drilling fluid, develop intelligent environmental protection drilling fluid technology, and reduce the difficulty and cost of end treatment and disposal of drilling fluid waste by greening the source. Ii. Improve the selective removal technology of micro and poor quality solid phase in drilling fluid, upgrade the treatment device, formulate the group’s unified drilling cleaner production standards, well site design standards and performance standards of recycled drilling fluid, and maximize the recovery and utilization of waste drilling fluid and waste water through process reduction. Iii. Establish the technical specifications for the classification, classification, temporary storage, treatment and disposal of drilling fluid wastes. According to different well depths, different drilling fluid systems and different lithologies, adopt corresponding treatment and comprehensive utilization technologies respectively, and realize the transformation of drilling fluid wastes into treasure through end-resource recovery. Iv. For drilling fluid wastes with different physical properties and different pollutant contents, different modular treatment units are selected to realize the modularization and standardization of drilling fluid waste treatment equipment through the integration of equipment.

Maintenance and management of solid and liquid separation equipment and drilling waste disposal equipment produced by KOSUN

Equipment wear and maintenance

The concept of wear and tear: there are two types of wear and tear that can occur over a long period of time. One is material wear, refers to the use of mechanical forces caused by friction, vibration loss; The second is base wear. If the equipment is scrapped due to improper operation or other reasons, it cannot be used again. Or because of the progress of science and technology, the equipment with better performance and efficiency of the same purpose keeps appearing, which reduces the “value” of the original old equipment. Formally, the former is called visible wear and the latter is called invisible wear.

Equipment maintenance job category: equipment maintenance includes lubrication, corrosion protection, parts control and replacement, etc. Generally, equipment maintenance is classified as follows.

1. Daily maintenance. This is the external maintenance of the equipment, such as cleaning, inspection, refueling, etc., which is undertaken by the operator as part of the handover.

2. Primary maintenance. Inspection and maintenance of vulnerable parts of equipment. Including cleaning, lubrication, equipment parts and key disassembly, adjustment, etc., generally under the guidance of full-time maintenance personnel by the operator.

3. Secondary maintenance. Carry out strict inspection and repair of equipment. Including replacement parts, repair equipment precision, etc. By full-time maintenance technical workers.

4. Minor repairs. This is a minimal amount of local maintenance, with only local repairs, replacements and adjustments.

5. To repair. This is one of the biggest planned repairs. Including the total dismantling of equipment, inspection, repair, replacement, adjustment, and finally reassembled into a new machine, and the appearance of the equipment for repainting or painting. Usually only a few years or even ten years to carry out, can be completed by professional (repair) factory.

Principles of equipment maintenance work

Pay equal attention to maintenance and planned overhaul, and give priority to prevention. Adhere to good maintenance, can reduce the equipment “wear” degree; Timely maintenance and can prevent small problems into big problems.

Adhere to the principle of maintenance first, production later. Production must have good equipment, so cannot do without maintenance. In order to catch up with the production task, it is not allowed to make the maintenance equipment “operate with disease”, so as to cause serious damage or accident, which will bring greater loss to the production.

Adhere to the principle of combining professional repair with mass maintenance. Workers are the users of the equipment, they are most familiar with the performance and technical status of the equipment; And professional repair personnel has the advantage such as special knowledge and overhaul means, so equipment maintenance should be given priority to with major, group union only.
