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.

Domestic Well in Hannibal, MO

Flynn Drilling Co. in Troy Missouri constructs a 400′ domestic well to provide dust suppression in a mine 300′ below ground level.  This is located in Hannibal, Missouri not too far from Mark Twain’s Cave.  During the construction of the well all drill cuttings had to be contained and hauled out of the mine.  Once in the mine it was pitch black and the only lighting was man produced from generators.  There were no gas powered equipment allowed in the construction of the well, diesel only.  The completion of the 400′ 6″ drilled well became artesian and produced approximately 20gpm @ 30psi.  No pump was needed for this well project.  A solenoid valve was installed to control the demand for the water supply for the dust suppression equipment in the mine.  No signs of Tom Sawyer or Injun Joe was spotted during the construction.
