I am pleased to support the new technology your firm is developing using compressed air for directional drilling.
I witnessed this firsthand in February 2009 your operation in the South Peace Region crossing the Kiskatinaw River. This river is highly entrenched with clay soils that makes any fracture most damaging to receiving waterways.
I have also observed the more conventional fluid based directional drills crossing the same waterway with more drastic impacts from drilling mud expulsion. The use of compressed air is certainly the best way to undertake sensitive waterway crossings as the impacts from this expulsion is minor to say the least!
I would be happy to have you refer my contact info to any interested companies who would like to hear directly from me my support for this new technology.
I do wish your firm continued operational growth
