  • Drilling Muds and Drill Cuttings Recovery for Beneficial Reuse

    Drilling Muds Drilling mud, also known as drilling fluid, is a vital component of the drilling process. It helps in the process of drilling boreholes into the earth where holes are required for extraction of oil and gas, core sampling and various other purposes. It is broadly of three types, including water-based, oil-based, and synthetic-based. Among all of these, synthetic-based muds ...

  • Drilling Mud in Horizontal Directional Crossing Project

    Horizontal Directional Crossing Project has a not long development in the country and even the world. But in recent years, pipeline horizontal directional crossing has been great development, large-scale construction of oil and gas pipelines across the length and across the diameter of the continuous creation of new records. In horizontal directional crossing project, the drilling mud play a very ...


  • Solids Control for Drilling Mud Process System

    Nowadays, more and more drilling contractors recognize solids control’s importance to oil and gas drilling, HDD, CSM/CBM exploration, etc. How does solid control affect well drilling? Please find the following details. Cost Comparison of Two Oil Well Drilling Let’s find the difference of two kinds of oil well drilling with and without solids control system. Final effect or result is ...


  • Maintenance of Oilfield Drilling Mud Decanter Centrifuge

    Decanter centrifuge is widely used in drilling mud separation to separate smaller solid particles after the equipment processing such as drilling mud shale shaker and drilling fluids mud cleaner or desander and desilter. Usually, decanter centrifuge is equipped with screw pumps or slurry pumps to feed drilling mud to ...


  • Hydraulic properties of a sandy loam soil following spent drilling mud application on native prairie

    Water-based drilling mud (WBM) systems are used by the petroleum industry during drilling of oil and natural gas wells. Provincial regulations in western Canada allow disposal of spent WBM on cropland and sometimes native prairie at low rates. There is concern, however, that application of drilling waste on native prairie in semiarid climates may alter soil properties, which may adversely affect ...

  • The “Straight Skinny” on bentonite-based drilling muds & their standard practice use in the horizontal remediation well industry

    Let’s make our point up front: 1) bentonite-based drilling fluid is NOT bad for horizontal remediation well (HRW) projects; 2) it does not damage the formation; 3) it is a naturally occurring clay material that is mined; and 4) it does flush easily/adequately during well development. Most remediation professionals have designed and/or installed vertical wells at one time or another ...

  • Why the mud won`t stick anymore

    Certainly, the Increased demand on resources within the oil and gas Industry has led to significantly higher costs In many areas of operation, not least having the means to clean equipment, such as mud tank*, pffertivply. And in the process of cleaning the mud pits on the rigs and the cleaning ot Thp mud Tanks on platform supply vessels and barges, there is the added complication of tightened ...

  • Mud desanders and desilters used in solids control system

    Mud desander is the second stage in the operation of drilling solid control equipment, commonly used is 10"and 12" cyclones. Oilfield mud desander is mainly used for the separation of solid particles in drilling fluid to particle size 45-74 microns in diameter. According to the processing capability, the ...


  • How to Deal with Drilling Waste

    At present, environmental protection is a basic state policy in China, and it has been a strategic mission and goal for our country to maintain a sustainable development of society, economy and environment. Along with the continuous improvement of environmental laws and the increasing environmental awareness among people, the departments concerned have successively enacted various environmental ...


  • Nigerian drilling platforms wastewater treatment

    Wastewater on a self-contained drilling platform comes from several sources. The following examples are samples obtained from the seven oil-drilling platforms off of the coast of Nigeria. The first platform had samples from the industrial laundry, kitchen, emulsified wastewater, cutting oily-water and drilling mud. The samples were treated individually and then combined so as to simplify the ...

  • The mechanism and law of wellbore instability due to drill string impact in air drilling

    Due to the low density and small damping factor of gas, drill string vibration in air drilling is much more violent than that in mud. Drill string impact on wellbore wall has a vital effect on wellbore stability in many cases. However, there are few researches about drill string impact on wellbore wall so far. In this paper, the calculation model of drill string impact on wellbore wall was ...

  • Centrifuge Technology in Drilling Fluid Recycling

    Drilling fluid additives and the water that contains them are an essential part and expense of successfully completing a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) installation, and the longer the bore and larger the product being installed, the more drilling fluids cost. Therefore, it makes economic sense to recycle drilling fluids by removing cuttings and recirculating the cleaned ...

  • Experimental study of the effect of temperature on the flow behaviour of oil-based muds in Niger delta formation

    The behaviour of the drilling fluids under high temperature is extremely important for drilling deep wells. Most commercial oil-base drilling fluid systems have limitations such as reduced rheology and filtration control if the fluid is exposed to higher temperature for prolonged periods of time. Formulating a drilling fluid system that can adequately withstand drilling in a high temperature ...
