waste which cannot be reused or recycled is collected and dumped in designated landfills gazetted by the respective environmental protection agencies.
Wastewater is treated then directed to the proper sewerage system to be handled by the responsible governmental body.
Work in Environmentally Sensitive Areas
Work in environmentally sensitive is done after consultative meetings with the community and environmental protection agencies which represent the government’s interests. A substantive work plan is drawn up and guides on how to conduct operations within the said environment. Our employees are also well trained on how to conduct themselves and their equipment in such environments
Reducing Fuel Consumption
Other than using more fuel-efficient machinery and vehicles, we also invest in technology that uses alternative sources of energy. We have invested a lot in a rig fleet that includes a number of electric drills for example. A lot is being invested in alternative technology to ensure that fuel consumption is as minimal as possible.
Reducing Surface Impact
We are also focused on reducing our impact on the physical environments in which we operate. The layout and compact size of our new drilling rigs mean
our customers’ well sites require a smaller footprint, resulting in less impact on the terrain and vegetation.
Geowells International Ltd also trains our people to conduct directional drilling and multi-bore wells, which significantly decrease surface impacts by reducing the number of well sites.
Most of our drilling operations incorporate closed drilling fluid systems that reduce and, in some cases, eliminate site preparation and clean up.
