Compressed Air Surface-to-Seam Borehole Installation

Project Role:

We acted as the company representative to manage the various contractors involved in the installation, ensure compliance with the introduction of new plant to a mine site, supervise design risk assessments, and review and approve designs for top-hat assembly. Issues with steering of the borehole required extensive re-work to recover the hole and complete the installation.

Project Assignment:

Teleo Engineering was contracted to manage the installation works associated with a new 250NB surface-to-seam borehole to supply compressed air to an underground coal mine. The project involved both surface and underground works, with multiple statutory owners on the surface. The borehole was lined with a steel casing to a depth of 500m.
