Drilling never a bore!

Country Energy’s Lismore to Mullumbimby (via Ballina) upgrade may have set a new world record, with two teenage drillers possibly being the youngest to complete the task in South Lismore, New South Wales.



The cousins Kane and Nathan O’Meley, aged 19, work for Arogen who was contracted for Country Energy’s project to connect Three Chain Road to Country Energy’s South Lismore zone substation, with high-voltage underground cables.
Directional drilling was required in two locations, in the area outside the South Lismore Sewage Treatment Plant in the western area of Tree Chain Road and underneath the Bruxner Highway.
The site of the possible world record, South Lismore Sewage Treatment Plant, used 2 bores in basalt 1.5 m separation with a minimum casing size of 600 mm internal and a bore length of approximately 220 m. The bore is to contain 7 x 180 mm plus 2 x 110 mm orange conduits and 2 x 100 mm white conduits.
The work was completed with a D100X120 Series II Vermeer Drill.
