Drilling Optimisation

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.

New technologies

IMDEX COREVIBE™
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.

IMDEX XTRACTA™
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.
