New Well Drilled in Rock Formation

Flynn Drilling Co. is constructing a new well drilled into the consolidated rock formation for their hometown in Troy, Missouri, utilizing their new 2015 T4 Atlas Copco drilling rig.  The new 12″ diameter well will be cased 880′ deep and drilling terminated 1,500′  into Lower Gasconade formation.  This new well will produce approximately 600gpm, which is much needed water for Troy’s growing community.  Air rotary drilling is used to drill large diameter water supply wells.  This method allows cleaning and retrieval of the cuttings from the borehole, thus verifying subsurface conditions in consolidated formations.
