460M HDD in Hard Rock Strata

January 29, 2024 by  
Filed under Prime Blog

Tracking Used: ParaTrack-2 + AC Beacon + Surface Coil


Location: Boyne River, Gladstone, Queensland, Australia.
Distance: 460M
Depth: 35M
Entry Angle: 13deg
Exit Angle: 14deg
Ground: Hard Rock
Pipeline: 4″ Steel Gas Pipeline
Technique: Mud Motor Assembly
The project involved drilling 460 meters through hard rock formation for steel gas pipeline crossing beneath the Boyne River in Gladstone, Queensland, Australia. The drilling was executed with precision using ParaTrack-2. Guidewire magnetic surface coil was laid on entry and exit side. AC Beacon, a wireless magnetic source was used for the river section of the crossing. The drilling technique incorporated a Mud Motor Assembly, enhancing control and efficiency in navigating the challenging hard rock terrain. This technical approach combines cutting-edge technology and strategic engineering to achieve successful directional drilling in challenging geological conditions.

Longest Gyro Module HDD crossing in Poland

November 22, 2023 by  
Filed under Prime Blog

Congratulations to the team for a job well done and in breaking a national record covering an impressive 2km!

Tracking used: ParaTrack2 + Gyro Module (100m of coil on 1 side, 220m of coil on the other side)
Location: Stepnica, Poland
Distance: Away: 2014m, MD: 2022m
Depth: 45m
Entry Angle: 10deg
Exit Angle: 12 deg
Ground: sand, clay
Pipeline: (size and material) 500mm steel
Technique: Mud Motor, PMR intersect, ParaTrack Gyro Module
What was the end use: Replacing old gas line

The steering of the pilot hole went smooth which also helps in reducing the pull force of the product pipe. The pilot hole was drilled with a 8” mud motor assembly and a 12 ¼” Tricone bit. Prime Horizontal provided two times the DHA  and mud motors as well as the guidance with the ParaTrack-2 system.
