THE COST OF A BOREHOLE in kenya
A common question that we are asked is “How much does a borehole cost?” While this might seem like a straightforward question to ask, the answer certainly isn’t. It is the equivalent of asking how much a car costs.
The answer is dependent on various factors. What kind of car do you need? What do you want to use the car for? There isn’t a blanket price for a car, and likewise there isn’t one for a borehole either.
The cost of a borehole is largely dependent on its depth and the amount of casing to be used. The type of rock that we have to rill through also influences the price, as does the actual ground conditions.
While most people expect the easiest drilling to be into soft and loose geologies, the opposite is generally true. A great difficulty of the drilling process is to keep the borehole open during the process, which is made more difficult when the hole is collapsing in on itself because of unstable and loose ground.
