Shallow Angle Drilling in Western Australia
SDS has successfully completed programs from -25 through to -90 degrees (with the ability to drill at lower angles if required). We have regularly combined these shallow angles with directional hole control to hit specific targets with some of these holes flattened purposely to angles as low as -12 degrees by end of hole.
