TRAINING COURSE

SOLIDS CONTROL SYSTEMS - SCS

SOLIDS CONTROL SYSTEMS - SCS





Non-Productive Time (NPT]. Invisible NPT relates to drilling performance, excessive volumes of drilling fluid, as well as cementing problems and barrier failure. All drilling fluid surface treatment systems should have three identifiable sections: Suction, Addition, and Removal. The suction section must blend the fluid so that the mud weight in the drill pipe is the same from top to bottom for reliable well control. Tank volumes, agitation, mud guns, and additional procedures are discussed to ensure a homogeneous fluid.

Drilled solids are easier to remove when they are large. Solids control starts with curttings removal at the drill bit to eliminate regrinding and reduced drilling rate. Removal of drilled solids requires an understanding of the performance of shale shakers, hydrocyclones, mud cleaners, and centrifuges.

Analysis procedures applicable for all drilling rigs, large and small, as well as any drilling fluid, will be discussed. Procedures will be presented to determine the optimum drilled solids removal efficiency for each target drilled solids concentration.

Designed For

Only people interested in eliminating non-productive time while drilling; such as: drilling engineers, drilling rig supervisors, tool pushers and drilling managers.

You Will Learn How To

• Evaluate effect of drilled solids on total cost • Remove drilled solids from beneath the drill bit • Transport drilled solids to surface • Component arrangement of drilling fluid processing plant for proper performance • Determine Equipment Solids Removal Efficiency of system • Understand the new API RP 13C (Solids Control) • Evaluate effect of drilled solids on drilling fluid properties • Minimize volume of discarded drilling fluid.

Course Content

• Analysis of different aspects of drilling affected by drilled solids • Solids transport capabilities of a drilling fluid • How shale shakers, hydroclones and centrifuges separate drilled solids • The new API shaker screen designation and how it works • Equipment arrangement on a drilling fluid processing plant • Mud tank agitation • Mud gun placement • Degasser operation and objective • Guidelines for effective drilled solids removal • Developing a thin, slick compressible filter cake in a well bore, maintaining a homogeneous fluid to fill drill pipe.
