If a bore is not correctly developed when drilled, the bore owner may experience a lower then expected production yield and the production of sands or silts that can potentially cause damage to your pump and motor.
Drilling muds are used during the drilling of the bore to ensure the hole remains stable. The development of the bore should remove all drilling muds to ensure the full capacity of water is able to flow through the screened section. Often if drilling muds are present the natural gravel pack behind the screens has also not been properly developed.
The natural gravel pack behind the screens are used to provide the required filter to block any unwanted sand or silt from the formation into the bore.
AGE are able to assist by isolating certain sections within the screened area utilising inflatable packers or M-Packers. The isolated area is now the focal point for development, hence a more direct and thorough cleaning process can be achieved which is able to develop the natural gravel pack behind the screened area and bring to surface any unwanted drilling muds.
