GN Solids Control has been providing solids and liquid separation treating equipment to more then seventy countries unit now.
Several weeks ago, the gas pipe line that connects China and Russia finally made it. It is such a great news that in the next 30 years Russia will deliver more than 1 trillion square meters gas to China. China Petroleum Pipeline Bureau (hereafter called CPPB) has invested more than 0.4 trillion usd to built the under ground gas pipelines since 2015.
CPPB is one of the largest customers for GN Solids Control. They have more than 20 sets GN Solids Control treating systems. When building this pipeline, they used 5 sets GN high configuration mud treating systems to eliminate the solid from HDD machines. Here are the main treating equipment in one set GN 500 GPM mud systems:
Drilling mud underground is pumped to GN Desander first by a submersible pump. Here the desander is composed by 2 sets 10 inch cyclones, which can help to remove solids larger than 55 microns. Effluent is discharged to the bottom shaker screens to eliminate more water to get drier solids.
Desilter is fixed with multiple 4 inch cyclones to eliminate solids larger than 25 microns. Same with the desander, it also has a bottom shaker to treated the cyclone’s effluent.
GN desander and GN desilter is fixed on a DNV lifting frame for fast relocate.
3.GN Decanter Centrifuge
2 sets GN 14 inch bowl decanter centrifuges are using after desilter. The first one is a middle rotating speed decanter centrifuge and the second one is a high speed one.
The first middle speed centrifuge help to remove most of those larger solids from volume, while the second high speed centrifuge separate out finer solids from particles. These 2 centrifuges can be also moved by lifting frames easily.
4.GN Mud Tank
GN provides 2 mud tanks to keep the above 2 sets lifting frames with treating equipment.
