Offshore equipment/Mud gas separator/poor boy degasser From China Supplier

DC offers a compact Mud/Gas Separator that is well-suited for the space limitations of offshore drilling. The Offshore Mud/Gas Separator is ideal when drilling is likely to encounter large volumes of gas.

Mud gas separator is also called Poor boy degasser, Gas-Liquid separator. It captures and separates large volume of free gas in drilling fluid. If it has “KICK” situation, this vessel separates the mud and the gas by allowing it to flow over baffle plates.

Features and Benefits
1. Separates free gas accumulations, including toxic gases such as hydrogen sulfide, from the drilling mud system.
2. Reduces Hazardous Gas Threat – The separated gas is carried by vent lines to a remote location and flared.
3. Fail-safe gas delivery can be controlled by a back-pressure manifold valve in the flare line.
4. Skid-Mounted and Trailer Transportable – Simplifies transport, spotting and installation. Unit can be laid down during over-the-road transport.
5. Versatile Configuration – Designed such that it can be raised or lowered for flow line adjustments to minimize piping.

4 Set of ZYQ800 Mud gas separator shipped to Indonesia

Poor Boy Degasser or Mud Gas Seperator, located downstream of the choke manifold, is a vertical vessel used to separate any gas from drilling fluid during well control situation. We got an repeat order of the 4 sets ZYQ800 mud gas separator from Indonesia tender project.

The mud gas separator is utilized where the amount of undesired gas was carried to the surface and does not interfere with the drilling fluid column, the separator provides effective gas control, venting gas at a safe distance from the rig and returning drilling fluid to the system in a controlled flow. When fluid passes over the separator baffles, gas escapes easily and is carried by the top vent line to the remote igniter where it can be burned off.

Mud gas separators are commonly used during oil drilling operations, particularly in situations when extraction is likely to yield a large volume of gas. Often referred to as degassers, these systems offer many benefits when drilling operations are centered on mud columns that are below optimal balance, and in so-called “sour gas” environments when there is a high concentration of hydrogen sulfide in the drilling fluid.

Mud gas separators in other countries also called Poor boy degasser,Liquid-gas separators,Mud/Gas Separators, etc. DC Solids Control designs and manufactures ZYQ Mud gas Separators. Mud gas Separators is an extremely reliable, vital piece of safety equipment for today’s drilling operations. It is ideal for use where drilling is likely to encounter large volumes of gas, sour gas or when an operator is drilling with an under balanced mud column.

How to work of mud gas separator with high efficiency

The gas discharge line of mud gas separator must be fixed. We must accord the specification or service requirement which is provided by manufactures clean and maintain mud gas separator. When in winter, if the bottom of mud gas separator is installed the cleaning value, in order to the fluid freeze block mud gas separator we should open the value.

Working theory of mud gas separator

The gas cut drilling fluid enter into separator from the separator inlet month, after impacting with the impact plate, scattered in a series baffle, crashing and increase and reveal the surface area, then downward flow causing the flocculated flow state, make the gas separation with drilling fluid. The free gas is discharged through the gas outlet of the top tank, the length of the exhaust pipe is decided and installed by the field and is lead to the safe place, but the after degassing drilling fluid flow into circulating tank through drilling fluids shale shaker.

Poorboy degasser also called mud gas separator that is an ideal for use where drilling is likely to encounter large volumes of gas. The technology is especially beneficial in sour gas environments or when drilling with an under balanced mud column.

To be as an professional producer of drilling fluid circulation equipment, DC Solid control has many different models of mud gas separator for sale, such as ZCQ800, ZCQ1000, and ZCQ1200. Different types with different treating capacity that according to your actual use to proposal.

Each mud gas separator has limitation on much it can safely handle volume of gas. If the volume of gas exceeds the maximum limit, gas can blow through into the rig. It is very important that you must estimate gas flow rate on surface based on pit gain and kill rate in order to see how much expected gas on surface. This will be the
limitation on how much you can circulate for well killing operation. You can estimate the volume gas on surface by using well control kill sheet provided by several companies. You need to ensure that the vent line should be as straight as possible with a larger ID in order to minimize back pressure while venting the gas out.

Anything that you don’t understand, please contact us to learn more about how to calculate the gas volume of your drill rig. And welcome to your valued inquiry of mud gas separators.

Major types and features of DC Solid control Mud gas separator

Mud gas separator (also called poor boy degasser or gas-buster) is a vertical vessel which is used to remove undesired gas from drilling mud when it returns from the well while circulating mud in order to control the well. The mud gas separator is designed in multiple capacities, to meet specific drilling rig conditions.

2. Large capacity
3. Easy transportation and installation.
4. Maximizes free gas/mud separation

8. Heavy-duty steel construction and adjustable mounting skid for any rig

There are three three major types of mud gas separators:

1. Open bottom: These separators are often called “poor boys,” and immerse the bottom of the machine in the mud deposit.
2. Closed bottom: A closed bottom mud gas separator features a sealed base, which directs the mud return into the storage tank.
3. Float: The float design is similar to the closed bottom type of separator, except that it has a valve rather than a permanently sealed line for the mud return. Fixed or elevated pedestals are also used to mount the base.

DC Solid control can design and fabricate the poor boy in varying sizes and lengths to meet your specific drilling conditions.

Pertinent features of the Mud gas separator from DC Solid control

In the oilfield, the mud gas separator is sometimes known as “poorboy degasser” or “gas buster”. They may be vertical or horizontal in design.

A vertical separator is normally used for high fluid throughput, while a horizontal separator provides a longer retention and superior gas separating capacity. Internal design and configuration governs the individual efficiency of the equipment.

The mud gas separators should be designed to a recongised pressure vessel code. To avoid plugging by solids, hydrates or mechanical malfunction, the separator back pressure should be controlled by a liquid seal rather than conventional back pressure regulators or liquid level control valves. A pressure gauge is required to monitor the pressure in the separator vessel.
