Boart Longyear Ltd. announces a plan to expand Mine Water Services to Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.
last 25 years, Boart Longyear Drilling Services has developed and honed an
effective reverse circulation method in North America,
and has established the leading process within the industry, while creating the
most highly specialized crews in the world.
Longyear utilizes a unique process which is capable of drilling large-diameter
holes in the most difficult ground conditions in a single-pass,” says Dale
Johnson, Global Director of Drilling Services Operations for Boart Longyear.
“Drilling a large-diameter borehole in a single-pass vs. multiple passes, which
can degrade the borehole, improves the likelihood of drilling a straight
borehole to target depth successfully. Our unique method of drilling and
completing wells provides better overall well efficiency and production – ultimately
saving our client’s downtime and money over the life of a well.”
Longyear offers a full range of mine and other water services drilling. This
includes production, de-watering, re-injection, monitoring, geothermal and
municipal wells. In North
America, Boart Longyear also provides pump installation and
documented procedures create reliable and effective large-diameter and deep-hole
drilling systems,” says Johnson. “Our water well services in the mining
industry are primarily utilized for monitoring water tables in and around the
mine, water supply needed in the mining process and/or lowering water tables to
allow safe and efficient mining. We also
install piezometers and other instrumentation holes for ground monitoring, and
horizontal drains to eliminate perched water causing pressure on mine pit
Longyear has assembled an international strategic operations team that currently
is training drill crews from Russia,
Kazakhstan and Peru.
