Full Procurement Disposal Well Drilling
RESPEC managed the drilling of a brine-injection well for CanPacific Potash (CanPacific) in 2021. Our team provided full procurement contracting and drilling services for CanPacific’s drilling program near Sedley, Saskatchewan. RESPEC designed the drilling program to ensure that all CanPacific’s data collection requirements were met while maintaining cost efficiency. We also obtained the drilling license, completed the site survey, and coordinated the surface-lease acquisition. Our personnel solicited bids for all the services and provided an Authority for Expenditures (AFE) cost estimate for budgeting purposes. We procured and managed the subcontractors that were required for the well drilling, and the invoices were paid on behalf of CanPacific during the drilling process. RESPEC was also responsible for tracking the costs and schedule, and the project was completed on time and within budget.
During the drilling program, RESPEC collected core samples for assay testing. A full geophysical wireline suite of tools was deployed and assessed for quality.
