Rathole Drilling

Before the drilling rig arrives many rigs need to have some prep work done such as setting a conductor pipe. Which is usually a length of 16" pipe that is cemented in place that serves as a pilot hole which the drilling rig will use in the first step of its drilling process. It helps reduce time for the rig by sealing off any early loss circulation concerns due to poor soils at surface. Rathole rigs will also set the cellar crib, that keeps an area open around the hole and makes life easier for attaching well control equipment. This process also includes the drilling of the mouse and ratholes which are storage holes for the kelly and a stand of pipe.

Pressure Cementing

This unit is a truck mounted single cement pumping unit as used in well drilling/service industry. The unit is a custom built oilfield, single pump cement unit powered by one diesel engine. The chassis engine is dedicated to driving the truck and the unit’s triplex pumping package and the unit’s hydraulic system. The unit can be used for a wide variety of fluid pumping operations such as well cementing and pressure testing.

The Key cementer components include, one SPM TWS600S high pressure plunger pump, ground mixing system, one hydraulically operated pressure/precharge GD certrifucal pump, one mechanically operated mixing centrifugal pump, two open top displacement tanks with vertically mounted mixers, all sensors for electronic recording capability, ECAM controls and a Enerflow Data Acquisition system.

Culverts & Couplers

Culverts have three distinct uses. One is to control and direct drainage of accumulated storm water runoff from crowned roads and side ditches. Another use is to provide stream crossings for all three road types. The third and least recognized use is to allow for natural movement of surface water on wet sites where fill roads otherwise adversely affect natural flow and other hydrology of the area.



This product is manufactured out of Polypropylene, through a unique punching and drawing (Stretching) process. BX PP GRID features high tensile stiffness, allowing optimal resistance to construction damage, and environmental exposure. Strength occurs when the granular particles penetrate the apertures of geo-grid and lock into place. Distributing dynamic loads over a compacted and wider area, while preventing lateral dispersion of base material.

  • BX= Bi-axle, equal strength in all directions. Allowing for loads to be applied in any direction
  • PP= Polypropylene a synthetic chemical plastic polymer, engineered for maximum strength
  • MD=Machine Direction (Longitudinal)
  • XD=Cross Machine Direction (Horizontal)
  • KN/m= Kilo newtons measure force per square meter

Woven Geotextile Series

These are made of polypropylene construction fabrics and are used for filtration, drainage, and separation applications. Woven Geotextiles consist of two fibers put together much like clothing fabric. This product yields high material tensile strength with minimal stretching (elongation). Woven Geotextiles are excellent for separation or stabilization applications for roads and construction area entrances.

Used for:

  • Filtration
  • Drainage
  • Separation
  • Reinforcement Applications
