Surface Supply and Aquifer Characterization and Modeling

Layne specializes in hydrogeological assessments that evaluate feasibility, determining potential capacity, leading to the appropriate well designs for developing local groundwater supplies.

We can provide geophysical surveys, exploratory test drilling, aquifer test pumping and well testing evaluations for new and/or existing operations. Extended aquifer pumping tests provide the necessary detail for optimal well design and well field planning.

Our highly-skilled technical staff has extensive experience with aquifer testing; over the years we have developed groundwater flow models for hydrologic systems across the United States. We deliver credible, objective, and accurate technical analysis based in field observations and measurements which are supported by a clear understanding of theory. Our hydrogeological investigations and modeling form the basis for:

  • Water Supply Development
  • Regulatory Requirements and Reporting
  • Water Supply Planning

Layne also provides comprehensive technical expertise in the areas of:

  • Working with Local Governments/Stakeholder Engagement
  • Surface Water Hydrology
  • Water Quality Sampling, Analysis, and Engineering

Vibration Technology

Innovative technology for removing stuck pipes.

Layne's Vibration Technology Services Pipe Vibration has numerous applications in stuck pipe recovery from freeing stuck coil tubing without cutting or damaging the coil to recovering screens, screen packers, and liners. Sanded or mud-stuck tubing, including seal assemblies can be recovered without the need for washover or jarring. Stuck rod strings and pumps can be recovered, eliminating the need to pull tubing and strip the rods as well as stuck washover pipe and jars normally used in conventional fishing operations.

Vibration Technology offers the potential to solve these problems from surface without downhole intervention in a minimum amount of time. In several instances, Vibration Technology's equipment and methods, applied from surface have succeeded when all else has failed. In addition, we have found that almost any stuck situation that responds to working the pipe string with a rig or conventional jarring may respond to pipe vibration.

Vibration Technology was established as an oil field service in 1996 to provide resonant energy services primarily for stuck pipe applications. The company utilizes acoustic theory to transmit standing wave resonant energy over long intervals of pipe in oil and gas wells. We have developed proprietary equipment and procedures that are highly effective in the recovery of stuck pipe from wells. The pipe vibration process has proven to be the most cost effective means of stuck pipe recovery currently available to the industry. New applications are under development that will enhance primary cementing through improved hole cleaning as well as the maintenance of hydrostatic head during the curing phase.

We utilize three applications of the Layne Vibration Technology for stuck pipe recovery:

  • Drilling Applications
  • Coil Tubing Applications
  • Workover Applications
