Heliportable Drilling


Determination Drilling can dis-assemble and re-assemble our drilling rigs to adapt for heliportable requirements, when drilling in remote places is needed. We are able to break our drills down into 3-4 pieces for helicopter flight and assemble them at the next drilling location. Our crew has helicopter training for safely loading and unloading the slings of equipment and supplies, and we are educated and comfortable using the proper hand signals to communicate with the helicopter pilot.

No matter what the challenge may be, Determination Drilling will find a solution to get the job done safely and effectively.
