DIRECT ROTARY – CONVENTIONAL DRILLING
Direct Rotary Drilling is the most common drilling method in the water, oil and geothermal industries. Direct –mud rotary drilling offers a number of advantages. It is a very fast and efficient means of drilling and is adaptable to a wide variety of geological conditions. In many cases direct rotary drilling can be the best alternative, especially for deep wells, directional wells or wells completed into well-lithified rocks.
In keeping with Barbour’s current core values in meeting customer’s demands, with high volume and successful water well completions, Barbour utilizes mobile, yet powerful, singles drilling rigs that offer advantages of a small footprint for tighter working conditions yet stout enough to handle drilling conditions that would normally utilize a doubles rig.
REVERSE ROTARY UNDERBALANCED DRILLING
While direct rotary drilling is the most common method used, in some cases there is a need for reverse rotary underbalanced drilling especially in soft formations, such as diatomite, or very unconsolidated materials which have been producing consistent and exceptional production wells.
In select cases, where using conventional drilling methods has traditionally experienced challenges such as lost circulation and damage to the surrounding formations, Barbour long experience with reverse underbalanced drilling methods can potentially eliminate these issues and give us the ability to gain a greater control on the hole structure without contaminating the formations and offer better completions and a better producing finished product. These services are suggested on a case by case basis.
