Drill sites that have limited or restricted access are often characterized with a unique set of challenges that can require specific rig specifications for completing the work. When scheduling a limited access project, it’s important to schedule a site visit as every inch counts when putting together the drilling program. There are safety concerns when drilling in limited access sites that are not always an issue when completing standard drilling projects as well. Planning, preparation, and experience are all key to successful completion of limited access jobs.
