Title (EN) SEPARATING DRILLING CUTTINGS AND GAS USING A LIQUID SEAL
(FR) SÉPARATION ENTRE DES DÉBLAIS DE FORAGE ET UN GAZ AU MOYEN D'UN JOINT LIQUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A gas separator, gas separation system, and method for separating gas from drilling cuttings by actively maintaining a liquid seal of liquid in a lower portion of a separation vessel by controlling an introduced amount of the liquid admitted to the separation vessel as a removed amount of the liquid is removed from the separation vessel and by promoting agitation of the drilling cuttings in the liquid in an agitation chamber within the lower portion of the separation vessel to aid removal of the drilling cuttings along with the removed amount of the liquid.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un séparateur de gaz, un système de séparation de gaz et un procédé permettant de séparer un gaz à partir de déblais de forage par le maintien actif d'un joint liquide de liquide dans une partie inférieure d'une cuve de séparation en régulant la quantité de liquide introduite dans la cuve de séparation quand une quantité du liquide est enlevée de la cuve de séparation et en favorisant l'agitation des déblais de forage dans le liquide dans une chambre d'agitation située dans la partie inférieure de la cuve de séparation pour faciliter l'élimination des déblais de forage avec la quantité enlevée du liquide.
