Geotechnical drilling is drilling which is often related to the construction of a structure such as a building or an oil rig. It can be part of the construction process as well as part of the investigation process conducted on site before the structure is built.

 It includes drilling to remove rock and soil samples, along with drilling to evaluate soil stability and other topics of interest. As part of the construction process, geotechnical drilling includes drilling to prepare for foundations, caissons, and various supports. Drilling of this kind is overseen by an engineer who confirms the placement of the drill and makes sure that the drilling is conducted properly.

What is geotechnical investigation?

Before the construction starts it is good to know your conditions.Investigating the soil is a good way to map the challenges ahead.

Commonly used methods

Depending on ground conditions and required drilling depth, core drilling or RC drilling can be the methods of choice. SPT or Standard Penetration Tests are performed by recording the number of hammer blows needed to drive up a sample tube to certain depth in to the ground. This would indicate the relative density of the soil.

 How to process the mud produced by Geotechnical drilling?

The mud produced by Geotechnical drilling is very less, it depends on the length and the core diameter. Usually its treating capacity is only 5m3/h or less, but it can not be discharge away directly to the environment because of strict environment protection regulation. If you have such problem, pls contact with GN solids control.

Enhance drilling rig efficiency and improve fluid performance

Effectively removing solids from returned drilling fluid is vital to your drilling rig’s performance and, ultimately, the ability to achieve your drilling objectives. Having the right equipment to handle these solids is critical, if you want to enhance drilling rig efficiency and improve fluid performance.

2 Solids Control Services (SCS), specialises in the supply of high quality decanter-centrifuge based systems and associated contracting services, applicable to a broad spectrum of solids control and separation applications on a worldwide basis.

New and ever increasing environmental legislation increases the importance of employing efficient and reliable methods to meet waste reduction and minimisation targets.

Using SCS systems for the treatment of waste streams, whether from drilling operations or industrial processes, can render the constituents of those waste streams suitable for refuse, thereby reducing adverse environmental impact and the costs associated with waste disposal.

3 GN solids control just provide solids control equipments and technical support for solids control industry.
