Drill pipe

Today we started the well drilling at Shikunga ACK. We started drilling at 11am. When we reached a depth of 21m, the service casing slipped down a bit. All 7 drill rods had to be taken out again and the bottom fixed at the top. Around 2.05pm we continued until we reached 42m depth at 3pm. The ground there is very soft and collapses. We would have to stop for today. A polymer solution has been ordered for tomorrow to stabilise the borehole wall.

Shikunga ACK is getting a hand pump installed at their site.
