What is Landfill Drilling?

Where your landfill permit requires that you monitor and control leachate levels, you must maintain site infrastructure to allow you to do this.

Instead of escaping into the air, gas from landfill can be captured, and used as a renewable energy resource if converted. This helps to reduce odours from the site and other hazards associated with gas emissions.

At Dempseys Drilling, we are experts in landfill drilling, extraction, and gas/leachate collection.

We offer a wide range of services, from lateral expansion to complete gas collection system installation, including LFG collection wells.

Drilling for landfill gas can be dangerous, but at Dempseys Well Drilling, we have some of the best health and safety policies in the business. With a strong focus on safety and quality, we have built a reputation as a reliable and trusted partner for our clients.

Our clients have even adopted our policies for their own employees working on well monitoring and maintenance. All of our supervisors receive additional training in health and safety, managerial skills, and occupational hazards. We also maintain a fleet of vehicles and trailers to facilitate work across Ireland. With state-of-the-art equipment like drill rigs that can reach depths of 180 feet, we’re able to install gas collection systems quickly and efficiently.

Different subsurface conditions can cause different reactions once drilling occurs. With our experience, we can safely perform these activities while ensuring quality and using proper installation procedures with specialised piping materials.

We work across many sectors

We work with both private owners and general contractors, as well as large solid waste clients across Ireland. Our team has the knowledge and experience to resolve recurring issues such as elevated temperatures, high gas concentrations, or intermittent gas flow.

When it comes to special-interest sites, we are the go-to company that will get the job done right.
