The Geo-Drill consortium is pleased to announce the publication of the 5th issue of its newsletter. From coatings development to enhance the life of the drilling components to working towards prototypes for novel hammer, the project continues to work towards a ‘holistic technology’ to reduce the cost of geothermal drilling.
GEO-DRILL PROJECT Q&A
Find out more about the project from our expert Kevin Mallin from Geolorn Ltd. In this Q&A blog, Kevin talks about the operating environment of drilling tools and impacts of the project Geo-Drill on the drilling industry. Read more
GEO-DRILL: HIGH VELOCITY OXYGEN FUEL (HVOF) SPRAYING
The selection of appropriate coatings should increase drilling times, reduce repair times and minimise cost. A wide range of HVOF coatings, including both cermet coatings and alloy coatings, are deposited by TWI Ltd to explore their possibility in protecting drilling components in Geo-Drill. Read more
GEO-DRILL – SIMPLE TECHNOLOGIES, DONE BRILLIANTLY
Simple technology, done brilliantly, makes sense, does it not? This is the ethos of The Geo-Drill project. To drill deeper wells, with lower costs and associated risks, tapping into higher temperature reservoirs and/or formations. Read more
