Coal Bed Methane Exploitation

Drilling deep boreholes to intersect gas productive coal seams. Our specialist ‘dual head’ drilling rigs are able to drill fully cased holes up to 350m deep in a ‘one-pass’ operation, simultaneous casing of holes also allows ‘casing off’ shallower workings without reducing hole size. Borehole depths of over 600m have been drilled for test and production wells.

The sophisticated cuttings collection systems fitted to the casing drive head can easily be adapted to provide wellhead gas protection.
