One African drilling company now is using GN Cuttings Dryer and GN Hi-G Shaker to treat the OBM and WBM in the rig site. These two systems are two sets paralleled systems which are put in front of the treating tank.
Drill cuttings discharged from the shaker, desander or desilter can be collected by a screw conveyor and feed into a Hi-G shaker. GN Hi-G shaker has a large G force which can reach to 8.0G. GN Hi-G shaker is mainly used for treating the WBM.
One set of GN Cuttings Dryer is parallel located near the Hi-G shaker. GN Cuttings Dryer is mainly used for treating the OBM. Generally speaking, when the oil in the cuttings treated by GN Cuttings Dryer, it can be changed from around 20% to less than 5%, the best result can reach to nearly 2.63% in the final cuttings.
By using GN Cuttings Dryer and GN Hi-G Shaker, customers will be able to protect the environment and recycle oil from drill cuttings for reusing. When compared with the total cost of the GN equipments, clients can sell the oil and make money. And when the oil price goes higher, those recycled oil will be a large profit for them.
