Clear Solutions were proud to be able to step up and help one of our customers Delta Simons Environmental Consultants. Delta-Simons is a trusted multidisciplinary environmental consultancy, focused on delivering the best possible project support and advice for customers within the property and construction sectors.
Whilst completing a site investigation project in the North West the Delta-Simons drilling team encountered fractured sandstone. The fracturing led to a loss of fresh water flush.
A call was put out to Clear Solutions late on Thursday and our technical support staff recommended a solution. The product was shipped on a pre 10am delivery with our staff arriving on site to meet the delivery. The Delta-Simons drilling team, with our support, successfully sealed off the fractures allowing the project to drill to completion with minimal down time and loss of flush.
We are pleased to announce Gordon Ham has joined the Clear Solutions team as Regional Manager for North America.
One of Gordon’s major accomplishments to date has been the creation of a drilling fluids service company in the Middle East along with a dedicated group of his peers, being instrumental in securing its first major contract valued at $2.4 million dollars.
Gordon has also successfully worked on the creation of a joint venture in Saudi Arabia and managed the Sub-Saharan operations of several major international service companies for many years, securing major onshore and offshore service contracts in East Africa.
Gordon says “While working on a recent drilling project it was obvious that the drilling fluid was not the right choice for the particular application. As we investigated further we wanted to move away from a typical KCL polymer system to mixed brine with more CaCl2. Finding suitable products to work in that environment was a challenge; Pure-Bore® and Pure-Bore® LV are the perfect choice to build these systems around. I am convinced that these products are the answer in “no solids” drilling fluids that are becoming more widely accepted across the industry.”
We welcome Gordon to Clear Solutions, he has a wealth of experience and we are thrilled to have him aboard the team.
