A Busy Time for Drilling
At Southern Testing we’re continuing to expand our rotary drilling capabilities and have had a very busy few months. Our commitment to providing a high quality, efficient service is keeping us working hard.
Our crews have been out continuously coring and down the hole hammer drilling with a wide range of techniques including recirculated flush and polymer flush drilling.
To cover demand, we’ve hired in additional rigs for our skilled crews to operate: coring 20m a day in difficult conditions with a Comacchio 205 and installing wells to 50m with a Comaacchio Geo 300. The latter rig is moving on to complete borehole soakage drilling at a variety of sites around the southeast.
We mobilise to site with both HGV and 4×4 towed equipment to ensure the highest level of versatility, and carry a full range of drilling tools to allow us to drill and sample in soil and rock alike.
Our field operations team are happy to discuss rotary drilling capabilities and techniques with our clients to ensure that their site investigation is conducted in the most effective way: we can cover most drilling techniques.
