WIRELINE CORING – GEOBORE S
Here at Danbar Drilling Ltd, we are experts in delivering an extensive range of specialist drilling services across the UK. With over 30 years’ experience behind us, we have earned a reputation for offering a highly respectable, trusted, and professional drilling service.
Amongst our extensive range of specialist drilling services, we are highly skilled and experienced when it comes to a wide range of coring techniques, including the specialist Wireline coring system (Geobore S).
WHAT IS WIRELINE CORING?
The versatile Geobore S wireline coring system is a unique system that brings together various different methods and a larger size core than other techniques (102mm). This allows us to deliver high quality, cost effective coring solutions, even in the most testing of environments and circumstances.
This high performance wireline coring solution has been developed in order to recover undisturbed core samples in most existing rock conditions including complex geological, geotechnical, and hydrogeological investigations. It is typically used to core superficial deposits and weak geological formations, providing high quality cores in sand, clay, and loose or weak formations.
HOW DOES WIRELINE CORING WORK?
During the wireline coring process, the inner tube assembly latches inside the outer core barrel, before being lifted to the surface by a retrieval device that is connected to a wireline cable. This method allows for optimum production rates in comparison to conventional coring methods. It also ensures that the borehole is fully cased at all times in order to optimise stability in areas of weak geology.
Our Geobore S Wireline coring services are fully compliant with CLASS 1 sampling under Eurocode 7. This system is the system of choice for a number of international site investigation projects.
