Increase Solids and Fluid Handling Capacity, Drilling Fluid Recovery, and Waste Reduction to the Max

September 22, 2022
Schlumberger
The biggest challenge operators are facing today is the bottleneck at the shakers, the ability to drill faster and the shakers’ ability to keep up with the drill rates, also for those shakers to retain as much of the expensive drilling fluid as possible while keeping those fluids out of the waste stream. The MONGOOSE Max high-capacity shaker is the latest advancement in shakers, significantly increasing solids and fluid handling capacity by 35%, and fluid recovery by 40%. With the integration of the new vacuum technology, the overall oil on cuttings by weight average is 10% over the more than 18% with third-party shakers. The whole mud on cuttings is reduced by up to 40%, with the discarded solids passing 99% of the US EPA Paint Filter Liquids Test 9095B and lowering the solids waste stream by 25%.
