Ensure execution of drilling programs to specification, on time, within budget and safely
As the cost of drilling increases, the need to improve productivity is paramount. Additional costs caused by higher operational standards, environmental restrictions and increased hole depths will continue.
As specialists in Drilling Optimisation, IMDEX’s vision is to ensure the execution of drilling programs to specification, on time, within budget and safely.
Our solution assists clients to:
- Hit targets accurately
- Drill as fast as the ground will allow
- Reduce down-time
- Be safe and environmentally responsible
- Deliver a cost effective quality drilling program and have the data to back it up.
Energy pulse assisted drilling
Conventional wireline coring has been transformed. High frequency energy pulse assisted drilling (EPAD) enables the IMDEX COREVIBE™ to deliver a 30%* productivity gain, due to an increased Rate of Penetration (ROP) whilst retaining good bit life, core quality and keeping the hole on target.
*Validated by SGS, a world leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company.
Retractable core barrel
Pulling rods is one of the most laborious, time-consuming and risky parts of diamond drilling. IMDEX XTRACTA™ allows the driller to inspect and/or change the bit/reamer each time the core is retrieved, optimising bit usage and minimising rod pulls.
With no need to pull the rods to change bits, the hole is always cased and maintaining hole integrity.
Make the most of your drilling fluid
A proactive solution for fluid loss and borehole instability
AMC’s patent pending Borehole Optimisation System (AMC BOS™) anticipates fluid loss, lost circulation and unstable zones, even in the most difficult conditions – making operations more predictable and decreasing the risk of hole loss.
This solution comprises of the AMC BOS UNIT™ an in-hole lubricating and casing while drilling tool, and AMC BOS FIX™ a rapid fill lubricating grout
