Trine provides the experience and expertise to utilize different approaches to solving potentially complex subsurface studies with traditional by engaging geotechnological options. These options include electromagnetic (EM) studies, ground penetrating radar (GPR), resistivity, seismic and, if determined to be an economically feasible option, gravimetric surveys.
Our staff has been involved in projects, primarily in karst topographies, that have utilized geotechnological methods to locate buried utilities for the expansion of power plants, to determine depth to bedrock and the general slope and/or fracture impacts for gray water storage for large cities, and to identify salt domes for the possible storage of extractable hydrocarbons. Additionally, the owner, Mr. Rogers, was also a horizontal geostreerer and is familiar with the interpretation of resistivity and gamma logs in real-time data. Most of the wells he “steered” were at vertical depths greater than 1000 feet below surface and often over 4,000 feet horizontally with the target zone being only 10 feet in height. Drilling out of these “pay” zones would cost the company significant time and money. Accuracy was the key!
We understand the benefits of geotechnological and try to encourage our federal clients that geotechnical methods, when used at the appropriate time, can save the federal government money and provide a preliminary reconnaissance of a targeted subsurface area. Our geotechnological recon can be used for subsurface environmental investigations, such as delineating fractures zones, and be an invaluable for geotechnical investigations!
