Mud Gas Separator

mud gas separator


Mud Gas Separator is commonly called as gas-buster or poor boy degasser. It captures and separate 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. A "KICK" situation happens when the annular hydrostatic pressure in a drilling well temporarily (and usually relatively suddenly) becomes less than the formation, or pore, pressure in a permeable section downhole, and before control of the situation is lost. It is always safe to design the mud/gas separator that will handle the maximum possible gas flow that can occur.
