Well and Borehole Video Inspection

Down hole video is a way of going to places where physical parameters prevent normal methods from being used. We’ve logged thousands of feet of open and cased well surveys, numerous mine shafts and freeway expansion joints. Below are some of the key benefits of our well video inspection methods.

Key Benefits

  • Real time visual display and recording.
  • Verification of newly completed wells or existing conditions (breaks or damages) in older wells.
  • The location of lost materials (pumps or tools) within these wells.
  • The ability to show and map detailed geologic features in the exploration of open holes.
  • With three different media: VHS, DVD, and CD ROM we can put your data on anything windows driven!
