DRILLING SERVICES

In addition to drilling works associated with geotechnical investigation works, Gulf Laboratories can also undertake a wide range of drilling methods at diameters ranging from 100mm to 560mm.

Water Well Drilling

We have had over 35 years of experience in drilling water wells throughout Qatar. Steel or PVC well casing and well screen can be installed together with appropriate filter packs. We can also undertake pumping tests to assess well performance and advise on optimum well yields and pump selection, as well as complex discharge and injection testing programmes as part of hydrological investigations.

Groundwater Monitoring Wells

We have undertaken the drilling and installation of numerous groundwater monitoring wells in association with environmental impact assessments and long term groundwater monitoring programmes. Our drill crews and supervisory staff have a wide experience of decontamination procedures and sampling protocols to avoid cross contamination. We also undertake groundwater sampling together with measurement of field parameters and subsequent laboratory analyses.

Soakaway Boreholes

We regularly undertake soakaway borehole drilling as part of infrastructure drainage schemes, together with permeability testing to assess dissipation potential.

Other drilling services

Other drilling services such as Earthing/Cathodic Protection Boreholes, micropiles and probe hole surveys can also be undertaken.
