Overview

Here at Sam’s we have a very well developed sonic division. This allows us to meet the needs of many companies looking for a specialized drilling solution. What is Sonic Well Drilling?

Sonic well drilling is a technique that does not use any form of drilling fluid. Instead the rig sends a high frequency pulse down the rod string. This turns the ground surrounding the drill bit into a fluid. The drill bit can then easily and cleanly penetrate the earth. This method is usually used to extract core samples because the drilling fluid, otherwise, disturbs the area being sampled. Sonic drilling also reduces the amount of waste that is ejected during the drilling process. Mud does not need to be constantly mixed, cycled, and emptied.
