To help you better understand how Zero Impact Drilling works and why it’s so important, the expert team at Bostech Drilling in Perth have put together a comprehensive summary below.
What is Zero Impact Drilling?
Zero Impact Drilling is essentially a drilling program which can be completed without causing any noticeable or long-lasting damage to the environment. Zero Impact Drilling is achieved by:
- Clearing drill lines & creating better access
- Using specifically designed drilling equipment which includes a zero-impact sampling trailer
- Thorough site cleaning after the job is complete
The Zero Impact Drilling process
Here at Bostech Drilling, we have developed a sampling trailer which is key to the Zero Impact Drilling process. The sampling trailer features two mounted cyclones for collecting outside return and any potential spillage. When this is full, it is removed, emptied and thoroughly cleaned before being used again.
The innovative design of Zero Impact Drilling equipment also allows the rig to safely move in between trees rather than rolling over and destroying them as traditional drilling equipment sometimes will.
Both the site preparation and site cleanup are essential to the Zero Impact Drilling process. The team at Bostech Drilling will assist the client with cleanup required. This includes the removal of waste, bagging spoil from the cyclone and outside return hose and removing all waste for off-site disposal. All drill samples, groundwater and any other potential spoils are contained so that unnecessary environmental impact is eliminated.
