Solids Control

Dual Centrifuge System & Flocculation Unit For Geothermal Well Drilling Project

Client:

Project Management Team

Location:

UK

Separo's Solids Control Services (SCS) division supplied a dual centrifuge system and flocculation unit for the drilling of a geothermal well in the UK. The well was drilled to a depth of 5275 metres - making it the deepest onshore well ever drilled in the UK.

About Our Client

Our client for this project was the project management team for the well.

The Challenge

Our client required a centrifuge system and flocculation unit for the processing of drilling mud during drilling.

Separo's SCS division was approached to supply a system and advised space was at a premium. Utilising our extensive fleet of decanter centrifuges and extendable frames we were able to supply a suitable solution based on a dual centrifuge system on an extendable double support frame, complete with pumps and conveyor system. To accommodate the space restrictions we were able to situate the flocculation unit on the ground level within the support frame.

What We Did

Following installation, the client was able to use the equipment to optimise the use of WBM during the project, allowing the mud to be reused.

Value Gained

The ability to recondition and reuse mud resulted in significant costs savings as well as reducing the carbon footprint of the project by reducing overall waste.
