CBM Production Drilling

CBM Production Drilling

CBM production wells are drilled both using air and mud. The rigs used to drill CBM production wells are usually multi-purpose DTH & Mud Rotary rigs.

SWPE’s production well drilling package is formulated keeping in mind CBM industry requirement and consists of best experienced manpower from the industry to manage the operations along with requisite rated Drilling Rig, Compressor, Booster, Mud pumps, Mud system, BOP, Joints, Fishing Tools & Associated Equipment.” SWPE has 2 no’s of CBM production rigs to drill upto a depth of 1500m and has completed drilling in more than 75 CBM production wells till date.

Coal Bed Methane Exploration

Coal Bed Methane Exploration

Coal Bed Methane or CBM is a clean-burning eco-friendlier fuel adsorbed in coal beds.

Extraction of CBM from Coal seems for commercial use not only makes Coal mining safer, but also converts a potent Greenhouse gas into an effective ecofriendly source of energy.

We at South West Pinnacle Exploration, extend various proven techniques for CBM exploration drilling. SWPE has successfully executed 4 CBM exploratory drilling campaign for major CBM operations in India and till date drilled more than 45 exploratory core holes. Currently SWPE is executing an exploratory CBM core whole program in Assam. SWPE has 3 No’s of CBM Exploration rig packages.

Geological & Geophysical Services

Geological & Geophysical Services

SWPE with the experience of our Core personal's have been assisting clients with its Drilling Services for Exploration & Production of Minerals, Coal and Coal Bed Methane. SWPE earnest endeavour is to understand the requirement of its clients and partner them in exploration & production services while maintaining highest standard of Occupational HSE.

SWPE can also assist their clients for their requirement in geological services:

  • Preparation of exploration schemes
  • Core Logging
  • Core Sampling
  • Rock Quality Designation
  • Geo technical Logging
  • Geological Mapping
  • Due Diligence of an area
  • Resistivity Survey
  • Magnetic Survey
  • Geophysical Logging
  • Geological Report Preparation

SWPE provides excellent on-site geological services for Coal and other Minerals exploration through experienced geoscientists. SWPE aim is to extend assistance for geological logging of litho-logical studies comprising of rock type, color, texture, grain size, roundness, sorting and visible mineral content, structural features i.e. slip planes, joints, minor faults and fractures, formational dips are noted; Zone of oxidation and weather mantle limits are demarcated.

SWPE has state of art geophysical logging & survey equipments. SWPE carry out Geophysical logging for stratigraphic logging with Density, Neutron, Gamma Ray, Resistivity, Caliper, Sonic velocity, Orientation of formation with Acoustic Tele viewer and Spectral Gamma tools both cased and open hole. The first geophysical logging unit was inducted in the company in April 2012 and till date we have already completed more than 1, 00,000m of geophysical logging in coal & mineral.

SWPE has also successfully completed geophysical surveys for structure delineation in coal exploration and have state of art resistivity meter and magnetometer.

Mobile Test Lab – CBM

Mobile Test Lab – CBM

SWPE has complete capabilities to perform the full range of coal bed methane (CBM) gas assessments. This includes several Desorption trailers used as mobile laboratories that can be deployed to drilling locations for on-site collection and analysis of coal core and gas samples. The mobile labs are comprehensively equipped for desorption analysis and can transmit data back to SWPE office over a secure transmission. SWPE in-house CBM lab facilities further extends the tests services as desired.

Mineral/ Coal Exploration

Mineral/ Coal Exploration

SWPE is successfully carry out mineral exploration project for coal, Iron Ore, Lead-Zinc, Gold, Chromite, Manganese, atomic minerals etc and have experience in working even in the remotest of areas having lot of local disturbances both in Green fields or Brown fields exploration program. The company has 24 mineral multi-purpose exploration rigs to carry our drilling up-to 2100m depth. SWPE has carried out core, non-core, reverse circulation, DTH & large diameter core drilling using latest hydrostatic rigs and state of the art technology.

Coupled with drilling the company has geological, geophysical & topographic survey services to complement the exploration program.

Coal & Mineral exploration is most of the time conducted in remote areas, where local enforcement of the law and the legal process may be inconsistent and there are communication, co-ordination and logistical issues. SWPE through its dedicated manpower and systems in place have been able to overcome these problems and successfully execute the projects.

Till date SWPE has successfully completed more than 40 exploration programs for coal & minerals and currently executing 7 programs for coal & minerals.
