Remote Drilling

We take MWD monitoring to a whole new dimension by investing in state-of-the-art drilling technology. This technology provides surveys on demand, unmanned surveys, and remote access capabilities thus reducing survey times and eliminating the expense of on-site personnel.

Remote drilling technology provides the ability to send out pre-collar loaded MWD tools and also the ability to receive and log surveys, gamma ray readings, or any other information from a remote location thus significantly reducing the amount of on-site personnel while maintaining and even enhancing the quality of service.

The NVADER system offers a robust pulsing system able to withstand the most concentrated LCM environments with a simple interface to allow for unmanned operations. The downhole survey system eliminates the need for boots on the ground and allows rig personnel to operate the tool quickly and efficiently in a vertical drilling environment. NVADER is capable of transmitting INC, AZM, tool faces and gamma-ray data.

Directional Drilling

We pride ourselves in offering innovative solutions to satisfy client drilling requirements. Our experienced staff is well placed to understand unique customer requirements and offer customized drilling programs to meet their needs. We provide the safest and most effective directional drilling service in the industry

– Proven motors and rugged MWD system
– Exact wellbore placement
– Anti-collision and torque and drag
– Engineering and well planning

Geowells International Ltd has a diverse wealth of experience in onshore drilling that enables us to adapt to the ever-changing industry. With the most modern technology, we are able to adapt to extreme drilling conditions including high temperature and high shock and vibration environments.

Drilling Optimization

Managing and maintaining wellbore integrity is integral to operational efficiency. Our qualified and experienced personnel uses modern technology and well-revised practices to optimize drilling performance. Geowells International Ltd offers a variety of services to maximize drilling performance for maximum efficiency.

– Three-axis real-time shock and vibration data analysis
– Use of modern state-of-the-art mud motors
– Real-time downhole pressure data analysis
– Near bit inclination
– Pre-job torque and drag and real-time torque and drag analysis
– Pre-job vibration analysis and BHA modelling

The above services facilitate real-time drilling adjustments in order to increase the bottom time. Central to all this is reducing non-productive downtime and implementing processes to mitigate unplanned future events thus increasing efficiency.

Drilling Training

As a market leader in directional and horizontal drilling within Kenya, we offer operation and safety training for MWD operators, directional drillers, and technicians.

With little to no technical institutes that offer training to drilling professionals within the region, Geowells International Ltd has taken up a pivotal role in providing a hands-on training curriculum for employees within the field.

The goal of the program is to provide a comprehensive training program consisting of theoretical and practical training and create a competent and certified team of MWD operators.


Side Tracking

For existing wells with poor productivity due to depleting hydrocarbon or water levels, we offer sidetracking operations to tap into better productive zones. The original wellbore is plugged back and deviated or alternatively, horizontal drilling is used to drill into a new lateral wellbore to install a new productive well or in order to tap into a nearby productive zone.



Stray or damaged equipment or debris, otherwise known as “Junk” or “Fish” must be retrieved through a fishing operation using specialized tools. During fishing operations, no drilling or workover operations can take place. Therefore, it is important to invest in the right fishing tools or contact qualified fishing experts, (us), in order to reduce nonproductive time. We offer fishing services during all the stages of the oil and gas lifecycle, that is, Exploration, Appraisal, Development, and Production.

Well Design

Proper well design is important for various reasons:

– To ensure reliable and sustainable water supply consistent with client needs and capability of the aquifer
– To ensure flow of good quality water that is free of sediments
– To increase life expectancy of the well
– To reduce operational and maintenance cost
– To ease monitoring of well performance

Here at Geowells, the integrity of our client’s well is of utmost concern to us. Therefore, initial stages of well preparation are subjected to intense scrutiny by our team of qualified engineers and contractors. They consider various aspects during the well-designing process. Decisions will be made about:

– Type of well
– Intended use
– Well Depth
– Casing material, size and wall thickness
– Intake design
– Annular seal
– Monitoring and preventive maintenance provisions

Well Casing

Geowells International Ltd has a team of skilled casing experts with vast experience in running casing and tubing in a range of materials, threads, and configurations. Safe and efficient operations are the basis for a successful casing or tubing job. Geowells International Ltd has a complete line of casing and tubing handling equipment for jobs ranging from 2 3/8″ to 13 5/8″ and string weights of up to one million pounds (453.6 tons). Compensations are available for thread profiles sensitive to weight during connection makeup. Computerized connection makeup service is available when requested whereby a digital signature of each connection is recorded and it documents proper makeup profiles. Geowells International Ltd has a preventive maintenance program to ensure equipment and instruments are maintained and calibrated to the highest standards. Only Original Equipment Manufacturer parts are used in our equipment thus ensuring utmost quality and reliability.

Well Placement

Precise well placement is crucial in improving the long-term and short-term performance of wells. Advanced measurement technologies and data interpretation ensure that the well is placed at the most optimum pay zone to maximize hydrocarbon recovery, postpone water production and extend well life.

Through geosteering, fracture identification, seismic prediction of hazards and pore pressure, we are able to drill land wells directly on target. Through geosteering and geostopping service, we ensure that we keep wellbores within reservoir sweet spots and ensure reservoir boundaries are within optimum positions.

Well Testing

We offer a variety of well testing and measurement services from exploration and appraisal through development and production. Productivity, fluid properties, composition, flow pressure, and temperature are measured and logged. This is done through the following tests:

– Well test design and interpretation
– Downhole reservoir testing
– Downhole pressure management
– Reservoir sampling and analysis
– Surface well testing
– Multiphase well testing and monitoring

As rising energy costs continue to increase operating costs, maximizing efficiency is critical. The following services are offered to increase well pump efficiency:

– Constant rate pumping tests
– Step rate pumping tests
– Pump performance testing
– Well-efficiency testing
– Routine preventive maintenance
– Pump repair
– Well rehabilitation

Well Servicing

We offer integrated workover services to local and international oil, gas and water companies within the region. In addition to remedial work on existing wells, our crew also provides completion services on new production wells drilled by our company. We generally offer the following workover services:

Subsurface Pumping: Subsurface pumps on onshore oil-producing wells and water wells have a finite lifespan and need to be routinely repaired or replaced.
Remedial Cementing: This is done frequently to shut off water or unwanted gas production.
Tubing Replacement: Most workovers require the production tubing string to be pulled from the well. As a result, production tubing needs to be replaced as part of the workover process.
Re-completion: Downhole completion hardware is exposed to materials such as corrosive water, sand, shale, tar and wax which clog and damage equipment.

Re-completing a well may mean extracting the hardware and repairing or replacing it in part or in its entirety. Alternatively, well conditions may change over time or technology may improve necessitating the removal and replacement of current hardware on the ground.
Well Cleanout: This entails the removal of debris, sand, scale and organic materials from a well to improve the flow of hydrocarbons or water to the surface. These contaminants may decrease production I not cleaned out periodically.
Re-perforation: We also do additional perforations or re-perforation of wells.
