In metropolitan Sydney, Australia, AMC CIVIL MUD XTRA™ significantly improved trench wall stability and dispersion, assisting construction underneath a major arterial road. The bentonite free mud system minimised fluid loss and improved productivity, allowing the project to progress without interruption to surrounding road conditions.
As part of the construction of the Scarborough Beach Pool in Perth, Western Australia, AMC was involved with the supply and management of drilling fluids for the Scarborough Beach Pool Project’s geothermal drilling programme. Adam Jennings, Waterwell Manager for AMC in Perth discusses the achievements and challenges of the project.
Down the borehole, you can’t always predict when or how things will go wrong. AMC’s new, patent pending Borehole Optimisation System (AMC BOS™) anticipates fluid loss, lost circulation and unstable zones.
AMC Borehole Optimisation System™ (AMC BOS™) successfully controlled fault zones and changing formations at a gold exploration project in Chile. This innovative system was able to have a positive effect on productivity and reduce the consumption of mud and water by effectively managing and preventing lost circulation, high torque and borehole instability.
Remote, real-time access to an operation’s drilling fluid properties enables clients’ greater control over their programs and product usage, reducing site visits by drilling fluid specialists and overall less movement on site.
