Air-drilling

Airpac Bukom has supplied comprehensive high-pressure air packages and operators to support drilling of geothermal wells.

Air Drilling

Airpac Bukom recently supplied six 950 scfm high-pressure Air Compressors, a 1800 psig Booster Compressor, a 2000 psig Booster Compressor, one high-pressure Air Receiver, a containerised workshop and a large quantity of air hoses to support air-drilling of a geothermal well in Espoo, Finland.

We were tasked with providing support to air-drilling operations of at least 3000m, before a possible switch to water-drilling. Well One was drilled to approximately 3500m, after some initial difficulties, and Well Two as drilled beyond 4500m, before the decision was taken to switch to water-drilling. Our team of three operators, on split shifts, successfully managed the entire package and provided support to the client on a daily basis.

Airpac Bukom’s equipment and operator provision resulted in successful operation and maintenance of the entire air package, ensuring no downtime was suffered as a result of compressor issues.

Airpac Bukom has also previously supplied equipment packages to support geothermal projects in Innamincka, Australia for Geodynamics (now known as ReNu Energy).
