Priority Drilling Ireland, equipment & specifications.

Equipment & Specifications\ priority drilling

priority drilling currently has a fleet of twenty five surface diamond drilling rigs and nine underground diamond drilling rigs. Our surface fleet is capable of drilling BQ through to PQ to depths of 2,200m. Our underground fleet is capable of drilling AT through to HQ to depths of 1,000m. Due to nature of the work required in Ireland priority drilling has engineered our equipment to suit our environment.

priority drilling has extensive experience in directional drilling allowing us to drill multiple daughter holes off the mother hole without having to relocate to a new set-up.
