The DeviDrill reduces the cost of exploration drilling programs by hitting targets quicker and more accurately than with traditional core drilling methods. By making multiple branches from a mother-hole it reduces both time and cost.Additionally, you get the geological information from predetermined strategic points.

Approach

The Success of TECH Directional Services has been anchored around being able to provide our clients the following:

  • The best tools available in the industry today.

  • Technicians that are highly trained and motivated; thus providing a top notch professional service based on experience, honesty, and hard work.

  • Realistic directional drilling planning and proposals. We have a very good understanding of what is achievable and what is not, from a directional drilling perspective. The client is presented with a detailed plan, along with our view on the probability of success, free of cost, before any contract negotiations begin.

 

History

TECH Directional Services was formed on September 15, 2007. Over the past 20 years the core group of what has now become TECH has been involved in many high profile directional drilling programs all over the world; such places include Tanzania, Columbia, Burundi, Venezuela, Guyana, The United States, and Canada. The experience and knowledge gained using a wide range of surveying and directional drilling tools, led us to choose the Devidrill Directional Core Barrel as the equipment we prefer to use and promote. We are pleased to add that we have an excellent working relationship with both suppliers.

 

FUTURE

In our short history we have quickly become the leading directional drilling group in the industry. Our plan is to continue with this success by striving to make our product and delivery continually better.

 

Recruitment

Over the years we have been able to recruit and train new employees by bringing them into our existing projects to work under the supervision of our senior technicians. In doing so we are ensuring that our standards are understood and accepted by anyone who plans to make a career in this field and with TECH Directional. Currently 75% of our field personnel have been hired and trained in this way.
