BC Well Drilling and Well Closures

J.R. Drilling Central Limited Partnership’s commercial equipment is extensive and expanding all the time. We invest in the latest in drilling equipment technology in North America, and our staff is continually learning so that we can provide our customers with the highest expertise and the most competitive drilling rates in the industry.

Environmental/Monitoring Wells

The Foremost Dual Rotary Drills are the most effective tools on the market for environmental drilling. Our supporting pipe truck has a built-in flatbed water tank which holds 1,600 gallons of water. Our Geo-Loop grout pump unit, when combined with the water tank, gives us 1200 gallons of water available for monitoring well installation.

Well Closures

We have successfully completed many borehole closures in both the public and private sector. We have all the tools required, including:

  • 1,600 gallons of fresh water available in a flatbed water tank
  • 1,000 gallon auxiliary tank
  • 30-500 Geo-Loop grout pump
  • 301.8 CAT mini excavator
  • Welder and cutting torches
  • Ability to pack two pallets of grouting product

Open Loop Geothermal

Our geothermal work includes both domestic and commercial. We have worked with Scott Schilleroff (AMEC Environmental) at the UBC Okanagan Campus geotechnical project in Kelowna, for which he won an award for the innovative design.

Ground Rods

We have worked with Fortis and BC Hydro on their groundwater resistivity testing by installing ground rods at their substation sites across BC.

Irrigation Wells

We drill irrigation wells ranging from 6” diameter all the way to 12” diameter for all levels of irrigation. Whether you need to water a small acreage for home use or irrigate hundreds of acres and require 1500 gallons per minute, we have done it all, so give us a call.

 Above Ground Sump & Pump

We have developed many uses for the above ground sump and pump system. They include:

  • Drop line water sampling
  • Water-based drilling
  • Monitoring sand content when developing large production wells
  • Environmentally sensitive areas
  • When in-ground sumps are unavailable

The equipment consists of:

  • 800 gallon primary tip tank (used of cutting collections)
