This report is designed for those drilling at a specific point. Boreholes can be drilled for a variety of reasons including to ascertain the geological succession beneath a site, for mineral exploration, for ground source heating and cooling, for a water supply or soakaway.
This report describes the geological succession you might encounter if drilling a borehole and also includes geological map extracts. Prognosis will be carried out to a relevant depth up to a maximum of 150m, with a default of 100m. Greater depths are available on request for an additional charge.
You can customise and enhance this report by adding the modules below to tailor it to your needs.
The Borehole Prognosis (point) module covers some potential hazards (running sands, dissolution and undermining). Optional modules contain information on further hazards, for example a Groundwater Abstraction or Hydrogeology (non-abstraction) module will cover the possibility of water inflows or artesian conditions and the Engineering Geological and Drilling Conditions module will indicate the possibility of very hard rock, etc.
Water Boreholes and Ground Source Heat Pumps
The requirements for water abstraction or soakaway boreholes and for heating/cooling boreholes (ground source heat pumps) are different and each requires a tailored prognosis. The relevant modules for a water borehole prognosis or a ground source heat pump can be added here, or, for suggestions as to which modules may be useful for your purposes, please use the following links:
Water borehole reports
- Yield up to 20m3/day (mainly domestic)
- Yield greater than 20m3/day (mainly commercial)
Ground source heat pump reports
If you are unsure whether you need a closed or open loop report then select a "Groundwater abstraction" module and the "Temperature and Thermal properties detailed" module below. This will provide enough information for a qualified professional to look at the viability of both options.
Areas of complex geology
For areas where the geology is very complex, the reports take significantly longer to write and this is reflected in the price. Please see the "Report availability map" for an indication of the area, these areas are shown in purple on the "Report availability map".
Geological Map Extracts are not available in some areas of the UK. These areas are shown in yellow on the "Report availability map" below.
