OEO Special Drilling Capabilities

Continuous coring in soil &rock for the entire borehole depth with Geobore S System (wireline technique) using Triple Tube core barrel with inner core diameter of 102 mm (4inch) and core length of 1.5m.

This method of continuous coring in soil and rock throughout the entire borehole depth is used to obtain better core recovery and to have proper and complete visual observation and identification for the material recovered throughout the entire borehole depth.
