Groundwater Engineering Services

Groundwater engineering services in the areas of groundwater supply, well-field design, well-field operation, aquifer recharge, water rights, and conjunctive use

Schlumberger Water Services (SWS) provides engineering services in the areas of groundwater supply, well-field design, well-field operation, aquifer recharge, water rights, and conjunctive use. Our groundwater hydrologists and engineers have designed deep production wells and well-fields in desert environments that are capable of producing many thousands of gallons per minute of yield. SWS has modeled the operation of large well-fields, including assessment of safe yields and potential impacts to other well users. We have assisted clients with the design and operation of pipeline systems to transport water from well-fields to end users. Schlumberger Water Services has extensive capabilities in unsaturated flow that are used to evaluate aquifer recharge for water storage and supply. Services offered for groundwater engineering include

  • drilling program management
  • well design, construction, and development
  • aquifer testing and analysis
  • well-field design and operation
  • aquifer storage and recharge
  • pumps and piping system design
  • costing
  • operation and maintenance plans
  • impact assessments
  • water rights

Project Examples:

LOCAR drilling program
Location
- UK
Client - Natural Environment Research Council
Description - A consortium of National Environment Research Council, Hydro-Logic Ltd, BGS, and CEH Wallingford appointed SWS to manage the installation of about GBP 3 million of scientific monitoring infrastructure in three flagship catchments under the LOCAR program (lowland catchment research). This project involved the successful implementation of a complex program of high-value contracts, including managing a major drilling program that installed about 75 monitoring boreholes. For this project, SWS managed the tendering process, land acquisition, drilling supervision, and financial reporting.
