DC got a tender order from Indonesia who are our old clients last week. The order is 4 sets ZYQ1200 Mud gas separator. ZYQ series Mud gas separator(Poor Boy Degasser) is professional equipment to treat the gas invade mud. When the drilling mud result gas invade, the proportion of its weight and viscosity have a greater deviation not to meet the requirements of drilling.

Main Specification of the ZYQ1200 Mud gas separator:

We can design and fabricate the poor boy in varying sizes and lengths to meet your specific drilling conditions

Oilfield drilling Poor boy degasser that removes air or gases (methane, H2S, CO2 and others) from drilling liquids. There are two generic types that work by both expanding the size of the gas bubbles entrained in the mud (by pulling a vacuum on the mud) and by increasing the surface area available to the mud so that bubbles escape (through the use of various cascading baffle plates).

Mud gas separators

In the oilfield, people have several names for the mud gas separator as “poor boy degasser” or “gas buster”. While drilling, the mud gas separator should be lined up at all times and filled with the present mud weight currently used.

The poor boy degasser is a highly portable unit used for removing air or gases ( methane, carbon dioxide and others) from drilling liquids. It accepts a two inch.

Yesterday, the clients from Indonesia got to our factory to check the mud gas separator and are very satisfied with the quality and delivery time. This is the first time to cooperate with this clients who is a trade company in Indonesia.

The Mud Gas Separator has been designed to capture and separate large volume of free gases within the drilling fluid. Designed for high pressure wells, this unit control the circulated gas to the surface separating the gas from the mud and vent it.

Mud gas separators are commonly used during oil drilling operations, particularly in situations when extraction is likely to yield a large volume of gas. Mud gas separator captures and separates large volume of free gas within the drilling fluid. If there is a “KICK” situation, this vessel separates the mud and the gas by allowing it to flow over baffle plates. The gas then is forced to flow through a line and vent it to a flare.

Mud gas separator

The mud gas separator skid may include one or more fluid conduits for use with a drilling rig, including an integrated vent line, a high pressure line, a low pressure line, a standpipe manifold, a rig water supply line, a diesel line, an air line, and a rig water return line. The integrated mud gas separator skid may be mechanically coupled to a drilling rig. The integrated mud gas separator skid may need only one crane lift to be mechanically coupled to the drilling rig.

Mud gas separator is also called Poorboy degasser or liquid gas separator which is a common safety device in oil and gas drilling mud circulation system. The purpose of a separator is to separate free gas or mixed gas and oil from the drilling fluid and convey the gas or oil to a flare or holding tank.

Mud-gas Separator handles a high proportion of mud solids and may experience hydrate plugging as a result of gas expansion through choke. Design of our Mud Gas Separator is based on conventional process practice, involving a liquid seal system matched to an adequate gas vent.

Specification of mud gas separator
Temperature range : -40°C TO 75°C
Pressure rating : UP TO 15 BAR
Venting size : UP TO 12″
Outlet size : UP TO 10″
Dimension: Based on rig requirements.
Capacity inlet pipe (MIN/IN) : UP TO 125/5

DC Solid control supply both vertical or horizontal Mud gas separator and fitted with internal baffles and distribution nozzles but performance of the liquid seal is independent of these design features.

Mud gas separator is designed primarily for the removal of entrained gas, from the drilling fluid. The mud gas separator is designed in multiple capacities, to meet specific mud gas needs. But what should we pay attention to when use the mud gas separator.

Two situations can cause mud gas separator blow-through.

1. Friction pressure of the gas venting through the vent line exceeds the mud-leg hydrostatic pressure, resulting in evacuation of fluid from the separator. Friction pressure of the mud through the mud return line is considered negligible because of its short length.

2. Vessel ID is too small, causing insufficient retention time for the gas to separate efficiently from the mud. This situation is commonly called insufficient separator cut.

To estimate a peak gas flow rate properly, we must consider a “typical” kick. The typical kick will depend on the well location, depth, type size, and component ratios of influx. Kick data should be based on previous offset well data and should be a realistic worst-case gas kick.

DC Machinery developed the horizontal drill mud gas separator but also supplies any custom units according to customer specifications and preferences. We also provide complete system gas handling analysis to establish the capacity of the separators in conjunction with the vent line and mud seal.

There are three types of mud gas separator used in the oil well drilling. Closed bottom, open bottom and float type. however the closed bottom is most popular one. It is closed at vessel bottom with mud return line directed back to the mud tank. Mud leg is maintained in the separator by installation of an inverted U-shaped bend in mud return line.

There are three major types of mud gas separators that Tech-Fab fabricates:

Open bottom: These separators are often called “poor boys,” and immerse the bottom of the machine in the mud deposit.
Closed bottom: A closed bottom mud gas separator features a sealed base, which directs the mud return into the storage tank.
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.

Mud gas separator is commonly called a gas-buster or poor boy degasser. It captures and separates large volume of free gas within the drilling mud.For oil and gas well drilling, we usually set mud gas separator ahead of shale shakers. The drilling mud out of well bore will flow into degasser via the chock manifold.

DCZYQ Mud Gas Separator (Poor Boy Degasser) is engineered specifically for onshore drilling operations. The working principle of the poor boy degasser is simple. The drilling mud with gas mixture in the bore hole is transferred by mud return lines to the inlet of the mud gas separator, allowing it to impinge on a series of baffles which separates gas from drilling mud. The free gas flows into the flare line to be burned and the mud discharges to the shale shaker and to the mud tank.

DCZYQ series Mud gas Separator combined with the Electric Ignition Device can be used to ensure the security of drilling process. It is divided into the normal pressure Mud gas separator and pressure auto-control Mud gas separator according to the pressure.

To achieve great performance, we kindly suggest Q345B material to resist H2S air. And the pressure vessel certification will give user more confidence for some special working condition. At DC solids control, APMGS1200 mud gas separator is rather popular. Please find more information below.
