July 2010 – Moura

Global Directional Drilling Services has been contracted by GD Pipelines to head to Moura (Qld) for the installation of a 630mm Enveloper Pipe for a major coal methane Energy Company. The enveloper pipe was used as a casing for a 355mm coal methane gas line and a 125mm water line at a length of 160m under the town’s main highway and rail line. Due to the dry and unstable ground conditions we experienced loss of fluid through the many fractures within the ground making it hard to drill in the pilot bore without fracing out, the use of N-Seal was used to control and prevent this problem. The project was completed in under a month with no LTI’s

Global Directional Drilling Services was employed by Seymour Whyte Constructions Pty Ltd for the upgrade of the Gold Coast Highway and Brisbane Road. We did 9 separate bores with the number of pipes installed ranging from 4 to 12 x140mm electrical conduits. Also on this project Global Drilling was contracted to Eco Civil to complete another two separate bores for the upgrade. A 50m drill shot for a 180mm water main running under Parker Street, the other a 70m shot running under Government Road for a 315mm water main. Also Tenix contracted us to install a 160mm gas line under Brisbane Road and Brighton Street.

November 2009 – Bohena Creek Narrabri

Global Directional Drilling was contracted by Eastern Star Gas after a previous drilling contractor had failed to complete the project. Global Directional Drilling had to lengthen and redesign the bore path so there was minimal pressure and drag on pipe installation due to the unstable ground conditions. The job consisted of two parallel drill shots, one to install 200mm water line and the other a 315mm coal methane gas line. The length of each shot was 380m, these passed under Bohena Creek, which is a dry creek bed with water flowing a 1m underground. The ground conditions ranged from dry fine sand to coarse wet sand, due to these unstable conditions after the pilot hole was drilled and reaming had begun rods where trailed so as not to lose original bore hole. The project was completed in a month. After completion Global Directional Drilling Services was offered a three year service contract with Eastern Star Gas.
