Boart Longyear Awarded Drilling Contract for NGL Storage Project

Press Release

August 22, 2014

Salt Lake City – Boart Longyear was awarded a contract on Aug. 1 for drilling services at the Magnum NGLs (natural gas liquids) Storage Project at central Utah's Western Energy Hub.

Magnum is building the first underground salt cavern natural gas liquids storage facility in the Rocky Mountain region at the site, located 10 miles north of Delta. Development will include the construction of solution-mined storage caverns in a salt dome approximately 3,000 feet below the natural surface. Initially, the facility will feature two caverns, each capable of storing between 1 and 2 million barrels of natural gas liquids such as propane and butane.

Boart Longyear will use the largest drill rig in its fleet — the LM700 model — to drill two injection wells using the dual-tube flooded reverse-circulation technique.

"With our dual-tube flooded reverse drilling technique, we will be able to penetrate the difficult loss circulation zones that have plagued previous drilling projects in this area for years," said Jason Lamb, U.S./Mexico territory contract manager at Boart Longyear.
