Shallow Drilling

Soil gas data acquisition is very essential for the initial indication of natural hydrogen presence. However, these readings may be skewed by atmospheric air contamination, causing elevated nitrogen and CO2 readings in the probes. 

Drilling shallow wells for more objective readings of hydrogen concentrations, along with GC and isotopic geochemistry assays adds a lot to the license acreage prospectivity picture.

Shallow drilling campaign may also be used for obtaining samples for soil degassing tests.
