Geothermal well construction.

Crack the challenges of geothermal drilling

Carrying out a reliable geothermal well construction project is no easy task—even if our experts make it look that way. We leverage our GeothermEx™ geothermal consulting services to get it done right. Our expertise enables

  • optimal drilling performance using unique drill bit designs in different types of hard rock and sedimentary rock
  • operating in high temperatures by using durable, corrosion-resistant equipment for long-term operational stability that withstands pressure and temperature cycles
  • drilling more reliably and accurately to reach drilling targets—whether they are shallow, simple wells, or complex multilateral wells for enhanced or advanced geothermal systems (EGS and AGS).

Our drilling expertise runs deep

We provide everything from early consultation to complete management of all aspects of planning, drilling, logging, and testing. Our experts have supported everything from single-well drilling and workover operations to field development programs.
