By owning and operating our own drilling rigs and not subcontracting, we are in control of the costs. We operate locally and are familiar with the geology of the areas we work. Our rigs are specified to do the job we require – to drill geothermal boreholes. We do not need the capability of more sophisticated more expensive rigs, this means we can keep our costs down.
Anyone considering this type of installation should be aware from the outset that the drilling process is a messy business, if the project is new build, the earlier in the programme this is scheduled, the better.
