INROCKÂ® professionals stand ready to help you plan your next project. Below are the typical services we provide our clients when evaluating a project. These services and expertise can help contractors better plan projects and increase profitability.
PROJECT FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS & PLANNING
INROCKÂ® assists clients in determining if a potential directional drilling project is feasible, both physically and financially, prior to bidding a job. Directional drilling, particularly in hard rock can alter normal project planning considerations significantly from typical soft bores, due to increases in job duration, drilling tool component costs, surface equipment requirements, and rig size and power. Comprehensive preplanning can be the key to successful project completion.
ROCK HARDNESS ANALYSIS
INROCKÂ® maintains multiple resources including our own in-house knowledge database collected from drilling thousands of pilot holes across the world to help clients evaluate and plan for specific ground conditions. INROCKÂ® analyzes geological information to help predict the correct drilling tool cutting structure required, cutter duration, cutter quantity and borehole production rates.
PROFILE DESIGN & EVALUATION
Ground conditions are critical in evaluating profile design. INROCKÂ® can help you identify potential problems and aid in selecting the best borehole path and profile. In addition, INROCKÂ® frequently helps clients evaluate bore design to identify challenges (radius design, entry/exit angles, etc.) with executing specific projects.
Proper hydraulics leads to longer tool life and more efficient drilling which results in increased profitability for contractors. INROCKÂ® assists clients determining mud pump output requirements and pressures required for optimum tool performance, and to adequately remove drilled cuttings from the borehole.
TORQUE & DRAG
INROCKÂ® helps clients analyze torque & drag to evaluate rotational torque requirements, push/pull forces, and drill rod limits.
CUSTOMIZED TOOLING PACKAGE
INROCKÂ® will use the various analysis performed and develop a tooling package customized to your specific project needs. INROCKÂ® then develops commercial proposal to fit your budget and project needs including providing both Rental and Sale options for the products required.
