Codeco -Vanoco Engineering Inc. announced the successful completion of drilling activities and the participation in the Eavor Technologies, Eavor-Lite Demonstration (geothermal) Project near Rocky Mountain House, Alberta.
Codeco-Vanoco Engineering Inc. helped design and implement the drilling and completion programs for the unique geo-thermal application as well as provided on-site supervision during the project. The project consisted of the Worlds first of its kind multi-lateral horizontal drilling intersection which was made safely, successfully and on budget.
The demonstration consisted of two drilling rigs spaced approximately 2.5km apart, commenced vertical drilling operations to an intermediate casing point of approx. 2,400m (2.4km). Once these vertical sections were cased and cemented in place, both rigs continued to drill two multi-lateral wellbore sections towards each other until making precise and safe wellbore intersections of the 156mm (6.125´´) diameter opposing boreholes. As the multi-lateral wellbore intersections are now successfully intersected, the drilling rigs have been released and final completion operations are currently on-going.
