Water Monitoring of the Great Artesian Basins

When Australia Pacific LNG awarded Leighton Contractors an $800m contract in gas gathering and water treatment plant facilities construction, one of the first companies they contacted was Darr Drilling. As a preferred supplier to Origin Energy, and having established a reputation for excellence in previous undertakings, Darr Drilling were the obvious choice for constructing production water bore holes to supply their construction needs and create a network of water quality monitoring boreholes.

Utilising our expertise in artesian water and collaborating closely with senior Leighton/Origin Energy Contractor Geologists and Hydrologists, a strategic plan for a network of water bore holes was established. The plans were in line with Australian Standards and met the increasing demands of environmental legislation. Now well into the construction phase, Darr Drilling have completed multiple 300m plus deep production bore holes that required 12 inch casing, telescoping hole construction and a powerful pumping solution to ensure a regular supply of water. In addition to the production bore holes, Darr Drilling have established a network of water sampling stations that will serve to monitor artesian water quality, pressure and contamination far beyond the life of the project.
