Exploration & Coring
Core and Sonic Drilling:
Pinnacle offers the full scope of drilling product, drill, rigs and accessories for coring including sonic. Sonic drilling enhances coring by using high –frequency, resonant energy to advance a core barrel or casing into the ground. The energy is transferred down the drill string to the bit face. At the same time, the drill string rotates and evenly distributes the energy and impact to the drill face.Read More
CASING: Many variables have to be considered when choosing the right casing for your application.
Typical variables might include such things as:
- Rotary or Percussion Drilling applications
- Permanent or Retrievable
- Thread Type
- Number of starts/leads
- Inner (ID) and Outer Diameter (OD) dimensions for your bit to pass through
Other variables would be the type of connections you require:
- Pin x Box
- Box x Blank
- Pin x Blank
Would you choose to weld-on tool joints, use casing shoes or try other types of fittings.
