Well Investigation

Directed Technologies Drilling, Inc. can help you identify the causes of decreased well performance and provide the development tools necessary to rehabilitate and maintain efficient wells.

Well Investigation: Identifying Causes of Well Inefficiency

The first challenge is to perform a well investigation to understand the problem with the well: Using water quality analysis, review of pumping records and if necessary, in-well video, we can help you understand why your well performance is decreasing.

Well Investigation Videos

Well videos in horizontal wells are complicated by fine sediment on the bottom of the well and frictional forces preventing the camera from moving deep into the well. Adaptations must be made to the typical vertical well or sewer video camera to allow it to proceed without stirring up well sediment. However, a visual record of the well screen can be very valuable in determining the cause of inefficiencies through a well investigation.
